Additional Information

Jacobs Cottage has been a labour of love by the present owners over the last 18 years. As can be seen from the photographs the end result is a home of great character, warmth and style. The property was cleverly extended in the Scandinavian log cabin style, to incorporate 3 extra rooms. The extension also has a thatched roof and in our view compliments the original cottage extremely wall. A detached timber summer cottage was also added and has provided a modest summer rental income. A charming, enclosed summer barbecue house has enjoyed good use over the years! Privately situated at the end of a long lane, Jacobs Cottage is a rare gem of a property in a stunning location and your early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
