A glorious little piece of English history
Published 16/12/13



Approached via a five bar gate on to an expansive gravelled parking area, the front door of the property provides access to the entrance lobby and it is here that the principal accommodation may be accessed.

Despite holding many original features throughout, the kitchen/breakfast room offers a modern feel with a range of fitted cupboards and enjoys double-aspect views over the gardens. A utility room is located just off the kitchen providing direct access to the gardens.

The drawing room offers a wealth of character features including a large inglenook fireplace with brick hearth and exposed beams. There are triple-aspect views over the rear, side and front gardens and the original front door and porch provides access to the garden.

There is a large dining room located in the extension. There are two staircases that provide access to the bedrooms. One is located at the far end of the drawing room, the other is off the entrance hall. The four double bedrooms continue the beamed theme found throughout the cottage and all benefit from high ceilings. A family bathroom serves three of the bedrooms and one features an ensuite shower room.

The gardens are a particular feature of Priory Cottage which have been painstakingly created by the current owner, with the help of a trained horticulturalist and are stocked with wonderful, vibrant flowerbeds and trees.


There are views over paddocks and fields. There is a bridge that crosses the small stream that passes through the garden. To the front of the property is a double timber-framed open garage and greenhouse.

Mrs Roberts said that there is a real community feel to the area with an annual cricket match between neighbouring villages creating a real element of competition. Many of the beautiful gardens in the village are open to the public every other year and the church provides a real focal point.

She said: “It has been a major decision to move but I am excited about the new challenges ahead of me and hope the new owners will feel the same sense of belonging that we felt living here.”

The property is available through Hamptons International at a guide price of 1.35m. For more details, call (01491) 572215.
