Bitthams is a wonderful period cottage built of brick and flint elevations under a recently re-thatched roof. The house offers versatile accommodation and has been extended a considerable amount over the years.

There are charming period features throughout the house with exposed beams in the reception rooms and attractive fireplaces in both the sitting room and dining room. There are two bedrooms on the first floor and further bedrooms could be created on the ground floor should they be required. The kitchen/breakfast room, which opens out to the gardens, is well fitted and sits adjacent to the rear hallway which houses the larder, store, gardener’s cloakroom and internal wood/coal store. The property also has a conservatory with delightful views.
