This lovely quintessentially English cottage sits back from the road towards the edge of the popular village of Tarrant Keyneston and has a wealth of period features and charm. The extensive gardens which overlook open countryside contain a wide variety of shrubs flowers and fruit trees.


Dating back to the 17th century, this character cottage was originally two separate dwellings, as can be seen by the contrasting sections of thatch and tiled roofing. The properties were at one time a Blacksmiths and separately a bakery. The sitting room, located in the oldest part of the home, has a large inglenook fireplace as a focal point with character beams typical of a house of this period. From the adjoining conservatory there are beautiful views over the rolling countryside of the Tarrant Valley, offering itself to a variety of uses, it is currently used as an additional sitting room. Steps from the lounge lead to the good sized, formal dining room which has a feature fireplace and wood burner as a focal point, with French doors leading to a garden terrace. The dining room leads to the kitchen, which comprises a range of cream Shaker style wall and base units and natural beech countertop and includes a built-in fridge, freestanding electric cooker, and space for a dishwasher. Steps from the kitchen lead to a utility area. Further there is an office, ideal for home working or as a guest bedroom. There is a bathroom situated off the lobby, a double bedroom with a generous en-suite, with a double shower cubicle, toilet, wash hand basin and storage cupboards.
