A delightful Grade II listed cottage with a generous garden set in an idyllic rural position

Crooked Cottage is a charming semi-detached thatched cottage, that dates originally from the 17th century, with later additions. The property offers plenty of original character, including exposed timber beams and open fireplaces, and is stylishly decorated throughout. The welcoming reception hall has an attractive brick and terracotta tiled floor and leads through to the sitting room which is dual aspect and has an attractive open fireplace. There is a stunning kitchen/dining room with large windows and French doors providing plenty of natural light and creating a delightful aspect across the terrace and garden. The kitchen is well fitted with painted shaker-style units, a butlers sink, integrated appliances and an Aga range cooker, and there is space for a dining table which overlooks the terrace. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all benefitting from built-in storage, and delightful views. There is also a dressing room, which could alternatively be used as a study/office if required. In addition, there is a large family bathroom and a shower room. There is also a new shepherd’s hut in the garden which is currently used as a home office. It is fitted with a kitchenette and a shower room providing useful overflow accommodation, and benefits from mains electric and water.


At the front of the property there is an area of lawn and a gravel driveway providing plenty of parking space. The extensive garden lies at the rear of the property, backing onto open fields and there are wonderful views all around. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature hedges, shrubs, and flower borders. There is a delightful west facing terrace outside the kitchen/dining room and a further terrace and sitting area to the side of the house.
