*VIRTUAL VIEWING AVAILABLE*Cottage, Holiday Let and Studio. Step back in time with this beautiful, character, Grade II Listed stone 2/3 bed cottage (formerly part of the Castell Howell Estate and dating back to the 1700s), sitting within just over an acre of grounds (which are a mixture of gardens and woodland with a stream and pond), together with a self contained holiday let property (which is a converted former stone forge), and a studio chalet.

The main property comprises; Open plan bespoke kitchen / diner / living room with feature fireplace and stairs to the second bedroom, a door leads off the living room to an inner hall with a bathroom off, and stairs to the first floor where there is an open area which doubles as either bedroom 3 or office space, a door leads from here into the master bedroom which in turn has a door that leads into bedroom 2 (housing the gas fired boiler in the airing cupboard). The beams in the upstairs of this property are quite spectacular! The converted Forge has a stunning open plan living space with fitted kitchen and dining area with an anvil shaped wood burning stove and a feature inglenook with beautiful stone steps to the side leading up to the mezzanine bedroom area, a door leads off the kitchen area to the shower room. In the Detached Chalet there is a kitchenette area with open plan lounge / bedroom with shower room off.

Externally the property is accessed from a country lane with gravelled area to the front of the main property offering parking space for 2/3 cars. At the far end of the old forge is a store shed with workshop. A path leads to both the chalet and old forge and the gardens extend down beyond all properties to the pond and stream borders. There is a wooden bridge which joins a small woodland area to the main garden. An idyllic setting for anyone looking for seclusion, character and lots of outside space with the added bonus of being only 5 mins to the local shop and having a pub within walking distance.
