Ideally situated in the middle of its grounds which are approximately half an acre, Field Cottage is a beautiful grade II listed home which began its life as 3 cottages and has been excellently adapted to become a spacious family home. The charm and character has been delicately retained and expertly maintained, whilst having been sympathetically extended making it ideal for modern living. The property boasts five bedrooms and three reception rooms, a modern kitchen/breakfast room, 2 bathrooms, en-suite shower room and ground floor w/c.

Upon entering through the double gates and stone pillars, a meandering gravelled driveway leads to the house where ample parking and the garage/studio can be found. The house, which is barely visible from the road, is understood to have been owned and redesigned by the renowned local architect Alwyn Underdown in the 1930's. The accommodation is incredibly versatile, having a selection of reception rooms and bedrooms, all of which have exposed beams and a wealth of oak joinery. There is also parquet flooring to the majority of the ground floor as well as several impressive fireplaces.

Two further bathrooms can be found upstairs whilst a combined w/c and utility room is located on the ground floor. The secluded gardens are a particular feature and can be found on all sides of the house boasting flint walls, large areas of lawn, brick paved paths leading to secret area's of garden, a water feature, pergola and a sandstone patio.
