Dating back to the late 18th century Rose Cottage possesses considerable charm and character. Period features include wooden Gothic-style windows, exposed beams and flagged stone floors. Don't let the name Cottage deceive you, it's a very spacious family home. The Grade-II listed property boasts well-proportioned rooms set over three floors.

The traditional stone exterior is what gives this family home its chocolate-box  cottage charm.

The house can be recognised as the Rose Cottage featured in the 19th century novel ‘John Halifax Gentleman' by Dinah Craik.

Like many modern country homes the kitchen is the one room that has been given an update. A sleek Bulthaup kitchen gives this otherwise traditional house a contemporary edge.

The large windows and glass fronted doors flood the formal living room with natural light. Slouchy linens and decorative Ikat prints help to create a relaxed country vibe.

A grand open fire takes pride of place in the informal living room.

High ceilings and dark floors help to create a sense of space in the master bedroom. An upholstered button-back bed, statement chandelier and floral wallpaper gives this room strong country style credentials.
