  • Bedrooms: 3
The cottage is built of Gorsley stone and dates from the mid 1830's. It was first extended in about 1900, then renovated and extended again in the 1980's. The current owners improved it further over the past 27 years. The major works they carried out include an extension, re-roofing, damp-proofing, chimney repairs and new kitchen in the mid-late 1990's, replacement garage doors and garage rewiring, replacement boiler and refurbishment of the central heating system and bathroom refit in the 2000's and further chimney repairs, new oven, gates and replacement rear uPVC windows to the rear during the 2010's. The property offers comfortable accommodation which currently comprises lounge, dining room, kitchen, rear hall, cloakroom, utility room, three bedrooms and a bathroom. There is the space and scope to extend the property to the rear to provide a larger kitchen and additional living accommodation if required. The property benefits from gas (LPG) central heating and retains many of its original character features such as exposed beams, wooden floorboards and fireplaces, most notably the stone fireplace in the lounge with multi-fuel stove and original bread oven.

The property sits alongside a attractive lane on the outskirts of the village of Gorsley and, as well as a double garage and off road parking to the side, the house enjoys a fantastic garden, predominantly to rear, measuring approximately 0.25 acre with pig cot.

The cottage is located less than 1 mile from the centre of the village of Gorsley where there is a community shop and Post Office, primary school, church, restaurant and pub. There is also a regular bus service to the larger centres of Gloucester, Hereford and Ross On Wye, which is approximately 5.5 miles away and offers a broad range of amenities. Also within easy reach is junction 3 of the M50, approximately 1 mile away, which enables convenient access to the Midlands, the South West and South Wales.
