About the home
A magnificent detached thatched cottage offering a complete escape from every day life. The cottage boasts a spacious living room with beautiful open inglenook fireplace, a large dining room to seat ten, a farmhouse-style kitchen and four bedrooms.
Bursting with character Taddlestones cottage still has its original beamed ceilings, which can be low in places throughout the ground floor. Located in the hallway behind the living room is the original well, which adds an unusual feature as it is sunken into the floor and covered by protective glass. Quite a talking point.....
