Located just 150 yards from the pub and shop in Ilsington and for centuries the village forge, the prettiest of thatched, detached cottages with a sunny little enclosed garden (table/chairs, bench, barbecue, bicycle store) looking to the neighbouring church (bells Sunday mornings/Wednesday evenings).

Inside, comfortable and welcoming with good-sized rooms, polished wood floors (rugs) and, from upstairs (high apex beams, Velux windows/sloping eaves), pretty countryside/church views. Terracotta-tiled entrance lobby (space for coats/boots) to comfy living room (TV/DVD/video) with ‘living flame’ gas stove; kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven, iPod dock); ground-floor double bedroom; two smart shower-rooms (suites) with tiled floors; rear porch/utility (washing machine) with stable doors to garden. Upstairs (steep narrow stairs, rope rail), making the most of the lofty eaves space and the views, a double bedroom and a room with two singles (both lowish lintels/doors approx. 6’ x 2’). No children under 8, except pre-crawling babies, due to steep stairs. A ‘chocolate box’ cottage in a friendly village location, an excellent base for wonderful walks and cycle rides.
