Yew Tree Cottage is an extremely handsome period property believed to date from the mid 18th century, built of Cotswold stone and listed Grade II. The house is south0-facing and as such the accommodation, arranged over three floors, is airy and light.

Bedrooms are currently arranged over all three floors, making the layout extremely flexible, and there is considerable scope for a new owner to enlarge, reconfigure, or refurbish the existing accommodation, relevant to the necessary consents.

The house comprises hall, sitting room, dining room, study, family room/bedroom five, kitchen with Aga, store room, playroom, bedroom four, master suite and two further bedrooms, and the family bathroom.
