An exceptional Grade II Listed detached cottage which was formerly known as The Royal Oak public house many years ago and now offers a rare opportunity to acquire this excellent property which has been in the same family for over 100 years.

The grounds of Old Royal Oak are a sheer delight and possibly one of its key selling features.

An OUTDOOR OFFICE/ SUMMER HOUSE is conveniently located in this area to enjoy warm summer days. The remainder of the grounds is portioned off with the lower half, predominantly being lawn with large brick built outbuilding and again having mature hedging and established trees which in turn leads to the designated woodland area. A path continues to the meander through the woodland to the top of the hill where it opens out to further garden which incorporates a conveniently placed kitchen/vegetable garden and further lawn with established trees, all creating an idyllic setting.

In all approaching 1 acre.
