Believed to date back to the mid 1700's, this character cottage was purchased from the National Trust and now has potential to create a quintessential period cottage standing in gardens of around quarter of an acre. There is access from the lane through double gates to a parking area and Heritage style open-fronted double garage and log store. The original part of the cottage is constructed of cob which is brick-faced in part, with later cavity brick extensions under a natural slate roof. Connected to mains electricity, water and drainage, the cottage has oil fired central heating. Gas is not available in the lane.
Appleby Cottage is well proportioned, and has many period features including an original inglenook fireplace with wooden bressumer beam, bread oven and wood burning stove.
Screened from the lane by a mature hedge, the main garden has a secluded south westerly aspect. From the parking and garage area, a brick path leads through the lawned gardens to a terrace (with pergola) which creates a lovely area to entertain or to simply relax and enjoy the birdsong. There is a small brick paved garden to the north east with a pedestrian gate leading onto the lane.
