FOUND: Idyllic character cottage near Wallingford.

Who doesn’t love a quintessential English cottage? Occupying a tucked-away spot in the historic Thames-side village of North Stoke, this is a real find.

Dating back to the late 1600s, this Grade II-listed property in the heart of the village is believed to be one of the oldest in the area.

The current owners have kept a very high standard of preservation and decoration and the cottage is teeming with well-presented original features.

As you’d hope, there is an abundance of original beams, leaded windows and fireplaces. Indeed, the front door opens into a welcoming hall with an original inglenook fireplace and bread oven.

Solid oak flooring and a kitchen with bespoke hand-made units are another bonus, as is the conservatory, and professionally designed, well-stocked garden.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom with leaded windows and a beamed ceiling interconnects with the second bedroom (which could also work well as a study or dressing room) and has its own original fireplace and stunning original ash floor. A generous family bathroom features a WC, basin and bath with shower.

For sale with Warmingham, Goring, and Knight Frank. Visit for the agents’ contact details.
