A charming detached period stone cottage with a garage/studio annexe in a picturesque location in the heart of this highly sought after coastal village. Grade 2 listed, Council Tax F, Freehold


Manor Cottage is a classic/picture postcard detached period cottage, together with a separate garage/studio annexe, enjoying private and well stocked south-facing gardens in a very picturesque setting, in the heart of this highly sought after coastal village. It is very historic, dating back to the 17th century and formerly a farmhouse. The cottage originally belonged to the Pitt River Estate and is listed grade 2 of architectural or historic importance , it also lies within the village Conservation Area. The cottage and annexe building have main walls of solid stone under thatched roofs.

Manor Cottage has been under the current ownership since 1991 and over the years a whole number of improvements have been carried out. Although clearly well loved and maintained over the years, the cottage and annexe would now benefit from general upgrading.

The well proportioned accommodation faces south to the rear and has a whole number of character features, typical of its age and type, including exposed beams, solid wood front door, natural stone fireplace, window seats and small paned timber windows. The kitchen/breakfast room has an oil-fired Aga and there is oil-fired central heating, although the boiler is no longer working.

The annexe building (most likely formerly a farm building) offers great potential for a whole range of uses ie as a playroom/office or conversion to a small guest suite/letting annexe etc., subject to any necessary consents



Large integral garage/studio annexe with parking to front and in addition there is on-street parking within Church Street, subject to availability.

The rear garden is a further feature being good sized, south-facing, private and very well stocked, comprising a full width adjoining terrace, lawn, a whole variety of flower and shrub beds, small vegetable patch, large lean-to concrete block and timber store and large stone shed/workshop.
