Cuckoo Mill is a delightful two bedroom cottage which is in need of considerable modernisation and improvement over the two floors. The cottage stands in an enviable valley location of about 3 acres surrounded by mature trees and shrubs with a stream meandering through its grounds. It is approached via a country lane and is accessed via its own entrance drive. It is rare to find a property in such a wonderful quiet peaceful location with no neighbours and extensive gardens and grounds.
The back door leads to a passage which in turn leads to the Living Room with inglenook fireplace, bred oven and wood burning stove with heavy beam over, fitted Kitchen, Wet Room and Utility room. Stairs lead to the two first floor Double Bedrooms.
The cottage sits just off a narrow country lane down its own private drive which leads to the rear of the cottage. The land surrounding the cottage is made up of mainly mature gardens with a good many mature trees both deciduous and evergreen together with a range of mature shrubs. A stream flows through the grounds to the front of the cottage, over which a wooden bridge leads to the remainder of the gardens. To the rear of the cottage is a further area of part woodland with a Polytunnel and various timber outbuildings. In total the property extends to about 2.97 acres.
