This four-bedroom thatched cottage sits in around 1.25 acres and would be ideal for nature lovers, as its grounds include a wildlife pond and a large paddock.  

It was constructed in 2015 by a local thatcher, who combined cosy spaces with a modern finish, and offers a sitting room, garden room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, plus a separate breakfast space and a shower room. 

The four bedrooms are located on the first floor and are served by a good-sized family bathroom, although the master suite also has the added benefit of its own bathroom and dressing room. 

Within the grounds there is also a patio and a raised vegetable garden. The cart lodge functions as a garage and has a toilet, storage room and office space.
