Set in beautiful countryside, on the edge of the popular village of Stoke Prior, this detached black and white style cottage is a real escape. Updated inside with a new kitchen, log burners, character beams and presented to a high standard,
Having driven down the long, privately maintained track to the property, the first thing that strikes you is the peace and quiet of this wonderful location. One of two cottages - sitting far enough apart to still feel isolated - this really is a rural idyll.
The origins of the cottage date back to the mid 18th Century and this is reflected in the black and white beamed faÃ§ade. A later extension provides further accommodation.
