One of the oldest and most interesting properties in the Parish with origins reputedly dating back to 1567, this interesting cottage once formed part of an old roadside Inn used by pack horse drivers and was originally constructed as a single storey dwelling but has subsequently been extended to provide conventional 2 storey 2 Bedroomed accommodation retaining a wealth of original features and beamed ceilings throughout.

The property has been the subject of continuing improvement with the Yorkshire stone slate roof having been re-felted, whilst enjoying the benefits of the more modern comforts of gas fired central heating and part double glazed windows in hard wood frames.

With the rare advantage of on-site parking and gardens on 2 sides including a private rear sitting out area which backs directly onto open fields, this architectural gem must be seen by those with a real passion for period properties with the accommodation in more detail comprising:
