River Cottage is a pretty semi-detached property located in the small village of Hampton Gay. The village is accessed from the village road down a single track lane and is surrounded by open countryside. The appealing cottage has a welcoming dining room with doors leading to the sitting room, kitchen and stairway. The light filled living room has 3 multi pane windows to the front and benefits from a working stone fireplace. The kitchen is to the rear of the property and has door access to the rear paved terrace and fabulous garden beyond. There is a sink base unit with space for a washing machine, fridge freezer and cooker and wall space for freestanding cupboards/dresser. A useful boiler room/pantry is located next to the back door. On the first floor there are two adjoining bedrooms, both with generous vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and attractive pitched dormer windows. These rooms could readily be reinstated to give three bedrooms if required. There is a family bathroom on the first floor and wet room to the ground floor.


To the rear of the house is a fabulous tiered garden which steps down to the river at the far end. Predominantly laid to lawn the generously proportioned garden benefits from a stone outbuilding and smoke house with wood store. There is a paved entertaining terrace to the rear of the house and gravel parking area to the side. The rear aspect is truly stunning with far reaching views over open countryside beyond the river.

The property benefits from riparian rights.

There is scope to extend the property to the rear subject to the necessary consents.
