Delightful, charming and characterful south facing period 3 bedroom cottage. Situated in a beautiful, peaceful location. Further potential for extension ( subject to the necessary planning consent).


Old Orchard Cottage is a charming and characterful cottage which has been sympathetically renovated and finished to an exceptional standard. The property offers a wealth of character including exposed beams and timbers, flagstone floors, bespoke external doors and windows and all original internal doors. The property still has much potential for further extension (subject to the necessary planning consents) and sits within extensive grounds including a tarmacadam driveway with potential for garaging. Through a gateway the garden opens up to large lawn and orchard which is very private and level.

Overall this is a charming cottage with much potential for further extension and offers the opportunity for a delightful hideaway in this peaceful location.
