Believed to have origins from the 1730’s, this quintessential semi-detached period cottage may be found discreetly tucked away along a small pedestrian alley in the heart of this popular North Gloucestershire village. The cottage has been lovingly restored over many years and retains a wealth of character.
With origins from the 1730’s and created from what were historically four farm workers cottages, to the pair of semi-detached properties we have in present times, Alley Cottage is steeped in character. On conversion, careful attention was paid to retain the heavily beamed ceilings and fireplaces, later and during the present owner’s tenure, the property has been further restored and upgraded to compliment the history of this very special cottage. The cottage benefits from a private and generous mature garden.
