Vendors' thoughts: "Having spent almost 9 years in Tarlton, it’s now time for our small family to start our next adventure. The new occupants will enjoy a gorgeous garden that will burst into life in the spring and summer with apple, pear and cherry fruit trees alongside a gorgeous plume of purple wisteria that cascades across the house. We will miss the orange glow of morning sunrises and the wonderful Christmas’s we have spent with neighbours, but most of all the stunning views and local woodland walks."
In a nutshell: A gorgeous quintessential cottage in a lovely village.

The striking navy blue front door opens into the cosy living room with inglenook fireplace and wood burner. The room is bright and light and beautifully laid out for both relaxing evenings and for entertaining family and friends. The adjacent kitchen/ dining room with skylight has been thoughtfully laid out to provide practical work top and storage space. The discreet utility/ pantry is a super addition. The dining area is well proportioned and works perfectly for everyday dining and larger gatherings and shows off the original features of the cottage with the exposed stone walls and period fireplace currently used as a handy place to store logs.
