Westward Cottage is a charming Grade II listed property with a characterful and well-presented interior together with a beautiful south west facing garden. The property, which is semi-detached, is of timber frame construction with mainly casement windows under a clay tiled roof. Having been run as a successful Bed & Breakfast, the interior has

been designed so that each of the 4 bedrooms has its own bath or shower room. There is a wonderful open plan farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room with a fireplace and exposed timbers which forms the hub of the house. A cosy snug/study with a significant inglenook fireplace adjoins. The current owner extended the house over 2 storeys to the

rear and this now provides a delightful sitting room with a master bedroom suite above. There is also a ground floor shower room accessed off the full-height reception hall. A second staircase gives access to a landing and the 3 further bedrooms, a bathroom and 2 ensuite shower rooms. Internal viewing is highly recommended.

The south-west facing garden forms an important feature and has been beautifully planted. An established courtyard garden adjoins the rear of the house with mature climbing wisteria, roses, an olive tree and honeysuckle as well as gravelled and bricked areas which are ideal for plant pots. There are 2 alfresco dining areas, one of which is shaded by mature hornbeam. A sun terrace gives way to an expanse of lawn which is bound by willow fencing. Beyond the fence is a small orchard and a large enclosed wildfowl run, currently the home to ducks and doves. Fruit trees include pear, apple

and greengage. There is also a charming summer house and stunning views over adjoining paddocks and meadowland.
