Believed to date from the 16th century, Meadow Cottage is a beautiful period property constructed of Cotswold stone with mullioned windows, period fireplaces, timbered ceilings and stone flagged floors.

Accommodation in total comprises: reception hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, master bedroom suite and two further bedrooms, family bathroom, and an attic room/bedroom four. The property is in need of some modernisation and would make a wonderful project.
