Laburnum Cottage is a charming detached Cotswold stone period cottage standing in a delightful area of gardens and grounds together with a pasture paddock to the rear, in all extending to about 7.68 acres. There is vehicular access from the highway.
The cottage is constructed of Cotswold stone elevations beneath a pitched Cotswold slate roof.

Adjacent to the kitchen, is a ground floor wet room with a newly fitted shower unit, wash hand basin and wc. The remainder of the cottage requires further modernisation and provides an excellent opportunity to upgrade this pretty country cottage.

There is a pedestrian hand gate from the village street with a path which leads to the front door. The gardens comprise flower borders and shrubberies together with a stone garden store and a well.

To the rear of the cottage is a pasture field extending to 7.16 acres in a beautiful setting. The field is mostly bounded by tall hedgerows providing considerable privacy, and in the centre is a stand of mature trees providing a parkland setting.
