Sunnyside Cottage, which is listed Grade II, could arguably be described as a classic English country cottage, with its exposed wall and ceiling beams and pretty thatched roof. Built principally of cob and dating back, we believe, to the 17th Century, a sympathetic extension was created in the 1990 s and this is now a very comfortable home of great charm which the current owners have taken care to maintain and improve. In the last few years gas central heating has been installed, the electrical wiring renewed and the cottage re-thatched.
