The rear garden of the cottage is mainly paved with patio slabs, with different gradients for added character and a border of well-established plants and shrubs. A grassy slope reaches to the top of the garden and is bound by wooden fencing.

Set back from the house up a concrete drive sits a horseshoe stable block on a hard standing, compromising of 4 loose boxes, 2 foaling units and a feed and tack room previously used as a chicken house.

Two paddocks sit to the left of the stables and two to the right all within close proximity. It’s an ideal set up for equestrian use, with far reaching views across the paddocks from the house. The land is to be used for permanent pasture with neatly fenced enclosures, situated on a gently sloping gradient. The soil type is lime-rich over chalk or limestone meaning it is generally freely draining. There is an extensive network of bridleways and footpaths neighbouring the land, but not crossing it, offering abundant hacking and walking opportunities.

Mains water and electricity. Drainage is via a communal septic tank that several properties in the village funnel in to on the neighbouring farm.

Heating is oil fired via the Stanley oven in the kitchen. It provides heating and hot water.
