Rose Cottage can only be described as a rare opportunity for a discerning buyer to achieve a fantastic rural lifestyle. Located at the end of a no-through, unmade road, and enjoying a charming outlook across it's own land, the immediate impression upon arriving at the property is one of tranquility and removal from the stresses of modern life without sacrificing accessibility to major transport links. Outbuildings including stabling for several horses, an all-weather arena and land amounting to just under 10 acres ensure that this is a superb home for those with equestrian interests.


Believed to be as many as 250 years old, the cottage was once derelict until it was rescued in the 1980s and transformed into the charming home seen today.

Internally, the living accommodation is open plan with two generous double bedrooms on the first floor, suggesting comfortable quarters for a small family, a couple or an individual seeking their rural idyll.

There is now scope to improve and update the cottage and yard, allowing an incoming purchaser the opportunity to tailor the property to their individual needs, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.


There is a public footpath running through the yard and across the land.

Rose Cottage is currently part of a larger property, from which it is to be split. This will include creating a splitting the water supply; the vendors will put in a new water pipe to the dwelling being retained.

The septic tank for Rose Cottage is located on land which will be retained as part of the split.
