This “superb” cottage for sale is full of charm and was once used as the village’s pub. 

Benedict’s Cottage, in Liverton, is believed to date back to the mid-1700s, and originally had a thatched roof. 

The building later became a taphouse pub named The Sportsman’s Arms, then being converted into two cottages. 

In the 1950s, the property was once again converted and became the village tearoom, before later becoming a home again.
