Swan Cottage is a stone terrace property thought to date back to 1815. It stands with views over the green, next door to the pub and as such is located at the very heart of this endearing village. The cottage itself has a wealth of history behind it having been the village shop and post office; the little red post box in its front wall still reminding us of its past. Over the years the cottage has been extended and latterly used as a Bed & Breakfast, boasting 3 en suite double bedrooms. The cottage also has an additional self contained one bedroom annexe that the current owners have utilised as a holiday let, although could just as well serve an extended family as a "Granny Annexe".

The accommodation has two front reception rooms, a spacious kitchen with a separate utility/boot room and ground floor shower room. There is also a sun room overlooking the rear courtyard garden. Upstairs in the main cottage there are 3 good sized double bedrooms all with en suite facilities. Accessed independently from Swan Cottage, the annexe has a small shower room off an entrance hall and stairs up to a living kitchen and adjoining double bedroom. This living accommodation is positioned over some additional outbuildings; offering potential to extend the annexe subject to planning consent. Vehicular access is from the rear across the back of the pub where there are options for private parking.
