History

Being one of a pair of stone built moorland cottages -  originally thought to have been one detached property  -  it is proving difficult to date. However, internal features such as a granite standing stone fireplace with a cloam oven; slate flagstone floors and beamed ceilings suggests it dates back to mid C19th, possibly built to house farm workers for the Bedford Estate.  

Description

This charming cottage which is full of character and deceptive in size, stands in a sheltered position off a quiet country lane -  leading to only three other homes, yet tucked away in the heart of the village near a babbling brook.
