Situated in an elevated position towards the edge of the village and backing onto the nearby English Heritage site and chapel ruins, Millers Old Cottage is packed with character and charming original features throughout. Originally thought to have been three cottages, the property now offers spacious and versatile living accommodation apportioned over two floors, with the current owners having maintained the home to an excellent standard both inside and out.
