Description

Absolutely Charming Historic Cob House


So welcoming, homely, and full of character and charm, this perfect family home also doubles as a bed and breakfast accommodation.

Built by George Holland between 1840 and 1850 using straw and mud from the property to create solid 50cm thick walls, this category two heritage home originally contained two living rooms on the ground floor and two upstairs bedrooms.

Further renovations and remodelling to fit with the era of the home have been completed over time. The home is built of cob, lath and plaster, creating a solid and well insulated home which now consists of three living areas, four beautiful big bedrooms, three bathrooms plus a study area. You will find original features and treasures of the past throughout the property, further enhancing the character and charm it has to offer. The roof is constructed from Welsh Slate, while distinctive gables and carved barge boards adorn the exterior.

This is an extremely welcoming home with a modern kitchen designed to aesthetically complement the era of its build, it is heated via a Rayburn Cooker with wetback and there are 11 radiators throughout. It is a home with a big heart. Many guests of the Bed & Breakfast have thoroughly enjoyed their stay over the years leaving glowing reviews.

The English country gardens compliment the home, set on a large 1200sqm section dotted with lovely flowering trees, fruit trees and cottage plants. Brick paths meander through the garden and create easy access to both garages. One garage is being used as a retreat and includes a laundry as well as a toilet while the second double garage can accommodate two cars plus a workshop.

Holland House is loved by all who have owned it, the current owners hope that you will love it as much as they do. They do not have a moving time frame yet and are happy to give the right buyers time to prepare themselves for this opportunity.

You are welcome to call us for more information, viewing is by appointment only.
