Positioned in a discreit hide-away location on the edge of one of the most attractive villages in the North Cotswolds, between Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh, this inner terrace (middle one of the three), two storey, one bedroom cottage now requires a full programme of improvement and renovation and is recommended for those looking for a property to improve to their own requirements that would in turn make an ideal second home or indeed a holiday cottage.

The property has a small kitchen to the front and a cosy rear living room with a real fire. At first floor level, there is one double bedroom and a bathroom.

Apart from the property's location, the other main attractions are the 90ft south facing enclosed garden to the rear and in a small cul-de-sac area to the front, the property has its own garage and further off street parking for one vehicle.
