Constructed in C1600 this Grade II listed thatched cottage has been meticulously restored by the current owners, most notably a new reed thatch this year and offers the opportunity to acquire a most characterful country home. Situated in the heart of the Frome Valley in Wynford Eagle and surrounded by just under an acre (approximate) of its own land, this property is the picture of tranquillity. Set back from a country lane and accessed by a private track, this property enjoys a pleasant approach and parking area for multiple vehicles. A wooden, latch and brace front door leads to the entrance lobby with useful under stairs storage cupboard and access to the principle rooms. An interesting period feature of this property and present throughout the ground floor are flag stone quarry tiles, which have been recently restored.
