Located on a quiet lane alongside Box Wood stands this beautiful two bedroom Cotswold stone cottage which enjoys idyllic and far reaching countryside views with good sized gardens to the front and rear.

Entrance is via a solid oak door into a decent size sitting room with original Cotswold stone walls, solid oak flooring, beamed ceiling and a multi-fuel burner. The good sized kitchen has plenty of room for a dining room table and overlooks the rear garden with established apple and plum trees through the French doors.

The first floor has two double bedrooms both with stunning views. The family bathroom benefits from plenty of natural light through a roof skylight and there is a decent overhead shower.

Both front and rear gardens at Hollyhocks Cottage are a good size with far reaching views onto open fields. The front patio is a sun trap making relaxing outdoors possible throughout most months of the year and is a beautiful spot to sit and watch the sun setting over the countryside.

Please note the vendor, an established conservation architect advises that all work has been undertaken to a high

standard in keeping with the building typology and age.

There is parking on the lane directly outside the entrance gate by Box Wood, which was bought in 2017 by local

residents and is run by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
