Details

Description

Little Britain Farm Cottage is a real gem. This beautiful property oozes charm and character throughout, with exposed beams, stone mullion windows and flagstone and stripped wooden floors, and is in a conservation area. Now a tastefully decorated family home, the cottage was once part of the original 17th century farmhouse next door, whose dairy farm served the community with milk and cheese. It is believed Edward Jenner carried out research into the smallpox vaccine on milkmaids here in the 18th century.

An oak canopy porch opens into a large hallway with beams and a flagstone floor and this leads to the downstairs cloakroom/utility room and the country kitchen/diner. This is a delightful room with a range cooker and room for a table overlooking the garden. Steps lead from the hallway up to the impressive sitting room, originally believed to have been the stables, now a large room flooded with light. Stairs lead from the hallway to the large first floor landing and on to the main bedroom with en-suite shower room and a built-in cupboard. A few more steps lead to the main family bathroom, which has unusual vertical beams and a claw foot bath, and a large double bedroom with double aspect windows, rustic built-in wardrobes and more beams. Stairs lead from the landing to the third floor, where there is a lovely attic bedroom with a built-in cupboard and also a landing area with storage and room for a desk.

Outside

There is a pretty enclosed garden with lawn, trees and shrubs outside the front door and a private paved courtyard area with a shed to the side of the house, which would make a great place for a hot tub. There is also an enclosed suntrap courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage, accessed from the sitting room, and another area of shingled garden in front of the kitchen. The cottage benefits from two allocated parking spaces and also two visitor spaces, available for the three properties on site.

Location

The popular village of Woodchester enjoys the benefits of a local post office, two pubs and a well regarded primary school. Woodchester lies equidistant between both Stroud and Nailsworth which benefits from a large and comprehensive selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. Bus services connect with Stroud, some two miles away where there is a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (2 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
