Millbank House and Cool Bank Cottage are two halves of one building in the much-desired village of Winson in the Coln valley.

Millbank has four bedrooms, a sitting and dining room as well as stone-built outbuidings and a barn/garage. Its neighbouring cottage, Cool Bank, has three bedrooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and outbuildings. Subject to the usual consents, the two could make a seven bedroom family home.

According to the agents, Knight Frank, Cool Bank ‘would benefit from a degree of updating’, while Millbank House is in better condition and has an excellent two-storey extension which was added about six years ago.

Cool Bank’s guide is £375,000 while Millbank House is asking £595,000, both through Knight Frank (01285 659771)
