In many ways Willow Cottage is a quintessential detached Hamstone cottage and is Listed as being of Architectural and Historic Importance Grade II. The interior is charming and atmospheric and at the same time with an extension at the rear provides 21st Century kitchen and utility space. The two reception rooms have beamed ceilings and window seats with the sitting room having a triple aspect and a woodburning stove, the dining room having a flagstone floor and a dressed Hamstone fireplace. Double doors from the dining room lead through into a very well fitted hand-built kitchen with stone floor and granite worktops. A two oven electric Aga is supplemented by a NEFF electric oven with microwave and NEFF electric hob. Double doors lead through into a lovely conservatory overlooking the garden with roof and window blinds and French casements out to the terrace. The conservatory, together with the utility and cloakroom, benefit from under-floor heating. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one with a wash hand basin, served by a recently refitted bathroom with traditional fittings together with a large shower.
A gravelled driveway leads to a pair of gates which in turn opens to a gravelled parking and turning area. The garden is something of a surprise in that its much larger than you expect it to be and enjoys a lovely open aspect offering a good degree of seclusion. A large paved terrace gives on to a well maintained sweep of lawn bisected by a stream. The lawns are studded by spring bulbs together with a variety of specimen trees. A high wall and fence screens the garden from West Street. At the bottom of the garden is a soft fruit and vegetable area together with cold frames, garden workshop and lean-to store.
