Rectory Cottage is a charming period home and is set back from the main road along a quiet lane in the centre of the village close to the picturesque St Nicholas Church and only 100m from The Red Lion public house. The internal accommodation extends to over 1,800 sq ft and benefits from lots of character features including spiral staircases, open fireplaces and bay windows. On the ground floor is an impressive reception/dining hall with feature fireplace and window seat, cosy family room with feature fireplace, bay window and double doors to the garden, farmhouse kitchen with pantry, utility room and a large sitting room with bay window and patio doors that open on to a paved terrace. Planning permission was obtained in 2011 and could be renewed for a single storey extension to the side and rear of the ground floor creating a more open plan kitchen/dining room.

At first floor level are two good double bedrooms, one with a shower and vanity sink in addition to the family bathroom. The second floor is accessed via two staircases, one from the landing and another from the master bedroom. The larger of the two rooms on this floor would work well as a teenager's bedroom or hobby room and there is also a small study/dressing room. Wonderful far reaching views can be enjoyed from the second floor over the beautiful local countryside.


The mature rear garden which benefits from delightful views of the church is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and apple trees. Immediately to the rear of the house is a paved terrace which takes full advantage of the west facing orientation in the afternoon/early evening. Parking is available in the lane to the front of the cottage.
