This “picture postcard” cottage comes with countryside views and character features. 

The cottage, on Hall Lane in Holcombe, has a thatched roof and neighbours the former Lobster Inn, which dates back to the 18th century with similar construction and could indicate as to the age of the cottage.

Though it looks like two homes from the exterior, the building is actually one large detached house with a secondary entrance to the sitting room through a stable door. 

A multi-panelled timber front door opens into a reception porch leading to a kitchen and breakfast room with a stabled door, integrated appliances and a ceiling beam.

The sitting room features a fireplace with a timber mantel, recessed shelving and cottage windows, as well as an archway leading to the family room.

Upstairs, the landing overlooks the garden and offers access to the master bedroom, with a recessed coat-hanging space and an en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, a wrought iron gate leads to a covered archway, with a front garden enclosed by a stone wall. 

To the rear is a decked area and the main garden area, while the property also includes driveway parking for one vehicle and a garage which is currently used for storage.
