With a games room, 12-seater cinema room and 5-acre grounds, this Grade II listed cottage has plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
This smart, Grade II listed cottage, converted from old stables, is situated 400 yards from the pub in Highweek and serenely set in the owner’s 5-acre grounds of 16th-century Ringslade House. A barn separates the cottage from the house. The interior is very smart and stylish with flagstone floors downstairs, whilst outside to the front is a large, rabbit-grazed lawn and to the rear is an enclosed courtyard with a gate leading to a meadow, which is shaded by old apple trees. There is also a fire pit with log seating and an unfenced wildlife pond. From the meadow, there is access to a games room (unheated) with a half-size table tennis and pool table, table football and darts, as well as use of a 12-seater cinema room with Blu-ray player.
