This handsome pair of cottages lie on the east side of the village green with a westerly aspect. It is believed that they were at one time a single property that was latterly divided into two. Although the current owners reside in Edistan Cottage and have rented Hill Rise as a holiday let the pair might easily revert back to one family home (subject to relevant planning consents). Whichever combination is preferred there is little doubting that the crowning glory to the property is its garden. On a site of just over an acre the garden evolves from the formal to the cultivated and finally coming to an end at a lawn that might easily be deemed a pony paddock.

Although similar in size and layout the two cottages have differing sized fitted kitchens and two separate reception rooms. There are two double bedrooms and a bathroom on both first floors, as well as recently fitted uPVC double glazing.

A hard standing drive branches from the village street and runs to the right hand side of the cottages where are a pair of wooden gates reveal a gravel drive that curves around the back stopping at the double wooden doors of a garage and a range of outbuildings. The rear of both cottages are predominantly to lawn with beautifully manicured edging, colourful herbaceous borders and raised beds. Walking down the lawn it also offers a productive cottage garden with vegetable beds and a green house. The garden seems to go on for an age finally coming to an open expanse of lawn.
