Dormouse Cottage is a charming period cottage which is believed to have origins in the mid 1700s and has a quintessential English country cottage appearance, having part stone and rendered elevations under a slate roof. Under the current ownership the property has been greatly improved and maintained to an exacting standard and is therefore presented in excellent order throughout with excellent modern conveniences including electric night storage heating, replacement double glazed windows and modern fitted kitchen and bathroom suites. These are dovetailed with delightful character features such as white painted exposed beams, an attractive feature fireplace in the sitting room with multi-fuel stove, cottage doors and deep sill windows. Facing south to the rear with glorious views over Boars Barrow Hill, the cottage is currently used as a superb second home and part-time holiday let with a very impressive occupancy rate but would also make a fantastic permanent residence or long-term letting investment in this highly sought after village.

The front door opens into an entrance porch which then leads through into the sitting room where there is a large beamed and stone fireplace with a multi-fuel stove. Adjoining this room is a useful snug/study, ideal for use as an additional reception room for working from home, as well as the kitchen which has been updated under the current ownership with solid oak worktops, fitted wall and base units including pull out larder units and comprehensive appliances including a built-in dishwasher, cooker, induction hob, extractor and built-in fridge-freezer. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and a utility/boot room, from which the back door opens to the delightful garden.

From the sitting room a staircase rises to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, one of which benefits from built in storage, along with the family bath/shower room which has also been refurbished under the current ownership.


Dormouse Cottage enjoys delightful, south-facing gardens to the rear which provide a lovely setting for relaxing, dining or entertaining outside with the backdrop of the stunning views. Immediately adjoining the rear is a paved patio area with an awning, beyond which are lawned gardens with well-stocked flower and shrub borders. There is also a stone garden store.
