The current owners purchased Stourview Cottage in 2008 and undertook an extensive restoration project. The house was originally built as two cottages and is believed to date as far back as 1720.
The owners have built garages, stores and an annexe/studio which comprises a living room/kitchen, bedroom and shower room as well as a detached cabin which has wonderful views and could provide a lovely space to work from home. The vendors have successfully operated a Bed and Breakfast business in recent years and could easily be opened again to provide a very useful income. Alternatively the accommodation could very well suit an extended family.
