Property Description

Bumble Bee Cottage is a Grade II listed property that has been occupied by the present owner for the last 56 years. The property is believed to be in excess of 400 years old and was re-thatched in 2022. The property retains many original, period features but does require some sympathetic modernisation throughout. Sitting in the heart of this popular village the property is accessed via gates onto a gravel driveway that offers parking for several vehicles. There is a thatched cart lodge which is currently used as a car port. There are extensive gardens with plenty of plants and fruit trees with far reaching views over fields to the side. An additional workshop sits in the grounds and provides plenty of storage and adjoins another space that houses the oil tank.

Internally the cottage offers versatile accommodation and benefits from good ceiling heights, plenty of windows providing lots of light and two separate staircases providing access to the first floor. There are three separate reception rooms with an impressive inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. This is a wonderful opportunity to put your own stamp on this little piece of history.
