Turn off the road to the riverside village of Dittisham and take the country lane into this delightful hamlet, surrounded by farmers' fields and woodland.

Park up in the parking space opposite the cottage, before heading to the stable style front door. Upon entry you immediately sense the peaceful calm, the character and robustness of this country home as its thick stone walls buffer you against the outdoors.

Step across the terracotta tiled floor into the cosy country kitchen with a selection of hand-crafted fitted units including a dresser, butchers block and sink unit with solid wood worktop. The inglenook fireplace contains the Bio Mass Pellet Burner Stove to heat the hot water and provide the central heating.

Follow the solid wood flooring ahead, where awaits the spacious yet cosy living room. Snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove, set atop its stone hearth beneath an original timber lintel. A useful store cupboard is also tucked away here under the stairs.

Dressed in reclaimed shutters, from Blundell's school the deep timber window frames offer views of the lane outside.

For rest and refreshment, head up the winding oak stairs where two of the bedrooms and bathroom await. Bedroom one has the added bonus of a mezzanine level perfect for a dressing room or study.

A further wooden ladder/stair leads you up to the top floor where two delightful loft rooms await. These cute rooms also take advantage of the surrounding scenery and would be perfect as guest or kid's room.

Heading back downstairs it's time to step back outside through the front door, and across the quiet lane to the private south facing walled garden.

This space is perfect for enjoying a cup of tea in the morning sun, then soaking up the sunshine in summer from afternoon until evening, the terrace is ideal for barbecues and alfresco dining.

Next to the garden is the off-road parking space and the Linhay which is currently used as a store/ workshop though with the relevant permission be used for extra accommodation or converted into a garage.
