Description The cottage is believed to have originally been a Victorian barn, which was apparently converted into two residences at the turn of the 20th century. Constructed of stone and brick, the cottage is rendered and slated. The property offers exceptionally surprising living accommodation with large reception rooms, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the added benefit of a large workshop/annex to the rear, driveway parking for several vehicles and a westerly facing courtyard garden. The cottage has access permission through a private gate to the woodland surrounding the reservoir and offers the wonderful opportunity for country living at its best.
