The rear garden of the property is a particular highlight and can be accessed from either side of the property, approximately just over 0.6 acres (280 feet/ 86m) long of mature garden with an assortment of plants, trees and shrubs stretching down to the bottom where you will find a flowing stream running along the back boundary of the garden. There is access to the rear of the garage and an attached stone built store room. Within these grounds there is also an detached derelict stone barn which we advise is unusable in its currents state. To the front of the property is a attached garage with space for one vehicle and small grass/shrub area currently unused but could potentially be adapted to additional off road parking subject to planning.

Stay on this road after about 1/2 a mile you will pass The George and Dragon pub, continue for a short amount of time and the property will be found on your right hand side just before Hansons Garage and identified by our For Sale Board

We would like to make viewers aware that in the garden we understand their is a historic mine shaft (silver) dating back to 1835 but weas later closed from 1848. The shaft is blocked and the location has been clearly marked from the owners.
