THE COTTAGE An enchanting and historic 18th century cottage blessed with intricate brick and flint elevations, set under a traditional pantile roof. This fine cottage is just as attractive on the inside with a plethora of period features that includes, pamment tiled floors, charming leaded windows, open fireplaces and extensive exposed beams to the ceilings. The present owner has lovingly restored this fine cottage throughout, with great care to preserve all of its charm but subtly blended in modern comforts and elegant interior design.

Chapel Cottage has a small, independent garden area on the Northern boundary which incorporates a parking area and houses the oil tank. A gate leads through to the main cottage garden allows the two properties to come together.
