Outside is a large stone outbuilding with light and power and behind this are the former pigsties, and a workshop, all of which could be developed into ancillary accommodation. The rear garden is a good size and enclosed by Cotswold stone walls. Principally laid to lawn, there is a vegetable garden, and a side garden, to one side and beyond is a small paddock and a stable block.

Yew Tree Cottage sits on the edge of Ampney St Mary in the Cotswolds. The village lies around four miles from Cirencester, although the nearest shop is around a mile away at Poulton, which also has a good pub.

The guide price is £845,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01285 659 771 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.

    Always a bit suspicious of houses like this where the prime estate agent has not used a photo that looks down on the property. Makes you wonder what is beyond it.. also I assume that the foreground dry stone wall hides something dire too, if not why use this image? What an awful photo… I hope the vendor complains to the agent… at KF commission rates surely they could have done better!!
