Believed to have origins dating back to the 16th Century, this charming home, named Yeas Cottage, provides accommodation of considerable character that blends well with its more modern comforts. Inside, the property is beautifully presented and has a wealth of period features. Beyond the entrance hallway, there is a cosy snug and a sitting room with a dual aspect and a fine inglenook fireplace housing a large log burner. This leads through to a classically styled family kitchen/dining room with a triple aspect, flagstone flooring, cream-coloured units, various built-in appliances, exposed feature beams and French doors that open to the garden.

The bespoke oak staircase leads to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. There is a further single bedroom, that would work equally well as a study, and a family bathroom.

Outside, the enclosed rear garden is well-established and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The garden features an expanse of lawn interspersed with mature trees and there is a handy patio area immediately adjacent to the house.
