The Property Glebe Cottage is Listed as Grade 11 and is believed to have been built around 1482 (just before the time when Columbus discovered America!). The quality of the house is plain to see with its exposed timbers, many of which are quite closely spaced, open fireplaces including two fine inglenooks, wide boarded floors and period doors which all add to the sense of this house having changed little over the centuries. It is not unfair to consider this property as having had a gentle hand on the tiller which has preserved its character. Having said this improvements and general maintenance has been undertaken with the thatched roof being the most recent project less than a year ago. It offers very spacious rooms which have good levels of natural light and has a good 'flow'. The accommodation is spread over three floors with six bedrooms, three reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen and two bathrooms with separate shower as well ancilliary rooms, and can be used in a variety of ways to suit an owners needs.

Beside the garage is parking for several cars and the main garden is to the rear and has been divided into 'pockets' which gives different dimensions. There is the immediate courtyard area defined by a timber pergola, areas of lawn with heavily planted beds, a vegetable garden, and a box hedge parterre. At the foot of the garden is the composting area. Overall the property sits in 0.103ha (0.25ac).
