Hollybush Cottage is a charming Grade II Listed country cottage, requiring internal refurbishment and would benefit from remodelling of the accommodation.

The property retains considerable charm and character with many exposed timbers. On the ground floor there is a fitted kitchen/ breakfast room with an Electric Leisure Range, a large sitting room with wooden floor and feature fireplace which houses a substantial log burning stove and double doors leading out onto a sheltered patio area. The first floor accommodation offers 3 bedrooms complemented by exposed timbers and a family bathroom complete with whirlpool bath. The spacious master bedroom is enhanced by an en-suite bathroom equipped with a wc, sink and shower.
