Charming three bedroom cottage situated on the quiet lanes of the popular village of Hartpury, surrounded by Hartpury University farmland and equine facilities. This 18th Century cottage has been lovingly restored over the last two years, both inside and out, to return the cottage to its former glory. Yet there is still the opportunity for the new owners to put their stamp on a piece of local history. The traditional feel has been kept throughout the cottage with exposed beams, fireplaces in each room and a traditional kitchen with Belfast sink and a restored Aga.

The local secondary school also has a 'Good' rating and is found in the town of Newent which is famous for its independent shops and annual Onion Fayre. There is also a village hall in Hartpury which houses theatre productions and concerts, as well as a farmers market full of local produce each month to add to the community feel.
