The Property

Knowles Cottage is a wonderful Grade II listed cottage of timber frame construction under a tiled roof. In the recent past Knowles Cottage has been run as a thriving livery yard and could be readily received as the land, stables and arena are all still in working condition. The Cottage remains much

of its original character and charm with exposed beams throughout, and pine floors and inglenook fireplaces in both the sitting and dining rooms.

The first floor is very adaptable with 2 double bedrooms, a single bedroom, bathroom and shower room in the original part of the property and two further bedrooms, shower room and study in the later extension. The self-contained ground

floor annexe comprises a sitting room, double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.


The gardens and grounds of Knowles Cottage are in three distinct parts. Adjoining the property is the formal gardens of undulating lawns, interspersed by mature trees, shrubs and established herbaceous beds. The land is divided in two by the lane. On the cottage side is an L-shaped stableyard, a further range of loose boxes, a timber frame haystore and barn with three internal stables and about 9 acres divided into paddocks by electric fencing. About 8 acres lies on the opposite side with a menege, approx. 50.1 m x 20.4 m, run-in shed and further paddocks.
