Lawn Cottage is a delightful 18th century detached thatched cottage which has been in the same family ownership for the last 100 years or so. Listed Grade II as being of historical and architectural interest, this pretty timber-framed and plastered cottage has two ground floor and two similar first floor three-light casement windows to the front aspect with unusual oval-patterned glazing bars together with a similar but smaller window above the central porch. The charming accommodation is laid out over two principal floors with two good attic rooms and provides larger than expected accommodation with further potential.
There are some delightful period features throughout the property including pretty corner cupboards, exposed chamfered ceiling beams, a variety of panelled or ledged and braced doors and vaulted ceilings on the upper floor.

The first, (to the right) has a working fireplace with timber surround and mantel, understairs and corner cupboards and door to the utility room. The second (to the left) has a fireplace with painted surround, brick hearth and there is access from here to the rear lobby, ground floor bathroom and vaulted kitchen with part glazed door to the garden and access to the utility room with a corner cupboard, wall mounted Vaillant gas fired boiler and part glazed side door to the garden.
