Full property description

A delightful three bedroom detached cottage, set within a gated plot of 0.25 acres, in a magnificent rural setting, with lovely gardens and spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. Mulberry Croft has seen numerous improvements in recent years and now offers extremely spacious and highly versatile accommodation. However, there is still potential to enhance the property further, with the opportunity to convert the garage (subject to planning consent) and create additional accommodation, if required.

The glazed front door opens into a lovely entrance hall which has a convenient cloak room and storage cupboard. To the right of the hallway there is an open plan living area which is exceptionally spacious and highly versatile and provides impressive views of the garden and countryside beyond.

The kitchen offers traditional style units that have been finished with granite work top and attractive tiles. Appliances have been integrated and a stoves cooker sits perfectly within this space. There two reception rooms off the kitchen, a formal dining area is to the right whilst a cosy sitting room with fireplace to the left. French doors lead off both reception rooms, so you feel wonderfully connected to the garden.

Through the dining room an inner hallway with stairs to the first floor leads to a jack and jill bathroom. This is a charming suite compromising of a quirky corner bath, separate shower, WC and basin.

This also provides direct access to one of the bedrooms which is a generously proportioned double room.

To the first floor one will find two bedrooms, one of which is a large double with characterful exposed beams and delightful views of the garden beneath.


Mulberry Croft has a gated driveway with a car port and storage room. This area could be converted and offer extra living accommodation to the house (subject to planning)

The garden wraps round the house and there is a real emphasis on making the most of the amazing views from the lovely seatings areas dotted around this incredible garden.

The lower garden has been arranged over different tiers, with alfresco dining areas placed under shady pergolas and an area for a hot tub with electricity and plumbing in place. There are several fruit trees bordering the newly fitted wood fencing.

On the other side of the drive the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a magnificent Walnut tree and offers a wonderful area for the children to play, there is a log cabin that sits to the top of the garden which is perfect for admiring the views. To the rear of the cabin a well-established vegetable patch and herb garden. A lovely wild meadow pathway has been created behind the gardens fence which attracts insects and butterflies. This garden is such an asset to this beautiful cottage and a credit to the owners who are keen gardeners.
