**VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE ON REQUEST**If your idea of bliss is living in the country, surrounded by fields and yet only 10 minutes driving distance from Whitchurch, then you are going to love this property!

You could feel like Lord (and/or Lady) of the Manor if you live here, although the sound of bird song in the hedgerows and mooing cows in the fields could drive you to distraction. Yes, it really is that peaceful.

Of course, you are unlikely to sit down and enjoy all of this if you are keen gardeners due to the size of the plot, although the odd goat, sheep or pony in the large garden would certainly help keep on top of the grass.

This lovely, extended detached cottage occupies a generous plot which the current owners believe to be around 1 acre, although we should point out that it has not been formally verified.

Nonetheless this is a very generous plot with a formal garden area, a vegetable plot and orchard area, in addition to mature trees and a babbling brook running through from the adjoining pastureland. It is an absolute haven for children, pets and avid gardeners.

The property itself has been enlarged over the years to provide spacious accommodation (downstairs especially), including 3 reception rooms in addition to the 3 upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen has been upgraded and has granite worktops, although the cottage still provides scope for modernisation and improvement in order to realise its full potential.

It is well placed within walking distance of Tilstock village, which is served by its own pub, church, nursery, primary school, village hall and tennis/bowling club. Bus services provide travel to Shrewsbury and Whitchurch.

There is a real sense of belonging to a community when living here, although there are more comprehensive facilities in nearby Whitchurch and Wem.
