A charming Grade II Listed thatched cottage set to the very end of a no through road with delightful private gardens of approximately 0.2 of an acre (stms) and far reaching views over farmland.

Occupying an idyllic rural setting, Rose Cottage is an attractive period cottage which probably dates from the early 18th century. The accommodation displays many period features, including exposed wall and ceiling timbers and open fireplaces. The cottage has been well maintained by its current owners, including the roof which was re-dressed and re-ridged in 2012. The gardens are a particular feature to the property which are principally to the east and offer much privacy.

The property is discreetly positioned to the end of a 'no through road' which is shared with neighbouring properties to the south. A five bar timber gate leads to the north side of the cottage offering off road parking which in turn leads to the rear garden and a sheltered brick terrace with barbeque. Steps lead up to a brick path which meanders through two main areas of lawn, interspersed with established trees and shrubs, and a garden pond. There are also two timber sheds and a greenhouse. The gardens offer a good privacy, with far reaching rural views over farmland from the entire northern boundary. To the south side of the cottage is a shingle path which leads onto a brick pathway giving access to the concealed modern bunded oil tank. A pedestrian gate returns to front of the cottage.
