Springwood is a fantastic property, originally comprising a row of four cottages and a barn understood to date from the mid 18th century. The house contains a number of interesting architectural features including fine granite walls, exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces. The roof has also been recently re-thatched.

The former barn was converted a decade ago and today the property offers flexible accommodation with the main house comprising three reception rooms, five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The additional cottage at the east end of the row provides useful ancillary income through shorthold tenancies, or could equally be used as accommodation for family or a holiday home.

There is also a raised terrace to the front of the property while the higher part of the garden contains a wide selection of flowering shrubs.

The village itself has a small church and about 35 houses and cottages.
