Foresters Cottage is set in nearly 48 acres of stunning woodland

The dwelling house is situated to the southwestern edge of the site which extends in total to about 47.93 acres to include the woodland ponds, access roads etc.

The large kitchen/dining room is sure to be the hub of the home

The whole of the property has been sympathetically managed and as such the grounds have a plethora of natural flora and fauna with numerous species of wildlife and birds in abundance.

A secondary concrete road was laid through the woodland and although somewhat overgrown at this time, once cleared provides vehicular access to the mixed woodland.
