The Cottage is a country property dating back to the 18th century, with later extensions carried out by William Morris when he owned the property in the 1920s. Mr Morris also bought the surrounding golf course which still gives the property privacy today.

The house still retains much of its character including oak panelled walls in the dining room, open fireplaces and bay windows in the reception rooms. The snug is a cosy room, also with fireplace the wine store/cellar is on the lower ground floor.
