The main cottage, named Oakfield’s Farm, has been renovated and improved by the current owners to create a welcoming home while retaining much of its original charm and character. Inside, there is a cosy sitting room that centres upon an open fireplace with an inset wood burner, while the living room is equally pleasant and also has an open fireplace and wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room has a traditional farmhouse-style look with light green units, contrasting work surfaces and a skylight that enables natural light to fill the space.

On the first floor, there are three good-size bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom with a newly fitted suite.

Outside, well-tended gardens sit to the front, side and rear of the property and are mainly laid to lawn with planted herbaceous borders. Beyond the garden is a pond, various seating areas and a wealth of specimen trees and shrubs.

The property comes with a range of useful outbuildings including a former piggery, a workshop and a steel-framed agricultural building which all have significant potential for development, subject to planning consents.

There is also a beautifully designed separate annexe with an open plan sitting/ dining room, a bedroom and a newly fitted bathroom. This extra living space provides the opportunity for multi-generational living or could be used as a holiday let and provide an extra income.
