Church Cottages is an extraordinary Grade II Listed period property, originally comprising three attached cottages that were owned by the church and which is now one single, but substantial period cottage that harks back to a bygone era and exhibits some original features that amplify the charm and character of this wonderful home. On entering the cottage, via the main front door, there is a long hallway that leads ahead to a back door taking you out on to a rear terrace and the garden beyond. To the left of the front door is a sitting room/study with a raised fireplace. Beyond this room is a useful utility room / store and a currently redundant bathroom. To the right of the front door is a fabulous dining room with a wood burning stove. This room leads to the very large open plan kitchen/family room. This spacious room is an important area being very much the heart of the house and where one is likely to spend most time. This room also accommodates a fantastic inglenook fireplace with a very rarely seen working bread oven. Just off the hallway again is the family bathroom with a white suite.

On the first floor, there are six double rooms (one of which is currently a study) that are all accessed via stairs leading from the kitchen. A separate staircase could be reinstated to allow independent access to all of the bedrooms, if required.

The garden is deliberately left mainly to wild growth and is therefore a haven for wildlife, but is also chock full of wonderfully fragrant varieties of flowering shrubs, roses, honey suckles, fruiting trees and much more. The garden has a glorious terrace and a little way further up the garden is crossed by a gentle flowing watercourse that feeds the village pond. The front garden is more open plan and there is off - road parking for at least one vehicle.
