A charming, detached three-bedroom cottage.

Thought to date back to the 17th century, Gingerbread Cottage is built of local stone with later brick additions. The property has retained many period features including exposed beams, fireplaces, exposed brick, original bread oven and window seats.

The front door opens to the entrance hall with oak flooring which provides access to the kitchen with a range of base and eye level units, electric range and Belfast sink. Adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room is a spacious, open-plan sitting/dining room with underfloor heating, bi-fold doors to the garden and views over the village cricket green and fields. Steps up from the sitting/dining room lead to a useful study. Further ground floor accommodation includes the drawing room with stone fireplace, built-in bookshelves and windows to the garden as well as a snug, also with built-in shelves and storage and a downstairs shower room.

Stairs rise from the hall to the first floor which comprises the master bedroom with built-in storage, a further double bedroom and the family bathroom. A second set of stairs from the entrance hall lead to a third double bedroom.
