Formally a Victorian stable block originally converted into a private residence in 1973, Stable Cottage now offers comfortable and well proportioned living accommodation extending to over 1,900 square feet. This includes a generous sitting/dining room with deep bay window enjoying views towards the village church.

The property also offers scope for extension if required subject to obtaining the necessary planning approval.

The large enclosed gardens lie principally to the rear of the property with shaped lawns, well stocked flower borders, paved seating areas, greenhouse, garden store and garden shed with light and power installed. A feature of the grounds is the magnificent century old copper beech tree together with views over the adjoining farmland and cricket ground across the lane.
