A charming detached character cottage with stunning, well-stocked gardens on the fringes of the village.
April Cottage is a detached Grade II Listed residence which has origins dating back several centuries and is a real 'chocolate box' cottage with its thatched roof and principally flint and Tolcis stone elevations.
It has well presented accommodation which retains some character features including beamed ceilings, exposed timbers, and stone fireplace to the sitting room with a woodburner.
Undoubtedly, one of the main features of April Cottage is its garden, which creates the most stunning colourful setting. It has been lovingly tendered by the current owners for many years and is a mass of colour with all the elements of a traditional cottage garden. There are borders stocked with a huge variety of shrubs and flowers, lawns and a paved terrace, and an attractive well with a thatched canopy. There is also a productive kitchen garden, timber green house and several sheds.
To the side of the cottage is a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is a detached garage which has an electric door.
