Margetts Hill Cottage is an attractive Victorian cottage which is situated to the southwest of Margetts Hill Barn. It is ideal as a guest cottage providing ancillary accommodation to the main house. The property has its own garden and parking area that is separate from the main house, so can also be used as a holiday business, providing a useful income stream. Subject to planning consent, it could become permanent accommodation for family or staff.

There is a triple open fronted carport, workshop, store and boiler room. A substantial studio with underfloor heating and panoramic views, and lends itself to multiple uses.

The property is approached by a long drive that leads past its own land to the ample parking area and carports.

Situated to the southeast of the house is a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden with stone flagged terracing, areas of lawn, Cotswold stone retaining walls, connecting pathways and pergola. There are well established trees, shrubs and climbers providing year round interest.

Formal lawns lie principally to the north of the property where there is a further terrace to take advantage of the views. Beyond the lawn lies one of the paddocks which in turn connects to an area of mature woodland containing fine examples of beech and fir trees. There is a second paddock extending to approximately 3.5 acres.
