Mayfield Cottage is a Grade II listed 16th century cottage. It is constructed of local stone, under a thatched roof (rethatched in 2013), with many original period features throughout, including beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, window seats and inglenook fireplaces.

The kitchen, with flagstone flooring, is well fitted, comprising a Belfast sink, former inglenook with bread oven, and a range of units and storage. The adjoining garden room (recently redesigned by the current owners), is the perfect space to relax and enjoy the beautiful garden, and doors give access to the terrace and gardens.

The dining room has an inglenook fireplace (blocked), ceiling beams and leads to the sitting room – which is a lovely cosy room with a raised open fireplace, and period built in cupboards.
Completing the ground floor is a useful utility room with separate cloakroom.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all with built in storage. The family bathroom is well fitted.

A cellar provides good additional storage.

The gardens are a real feature of the property, being south facing, with a lawned area, edged with mature shrub and flower borders, leading to a further lawned area – the perfect place to relax and entertain.

There is an uninterrupted pedestrian access over the neighbour’s garden to the village lane.
