This charming stone-built detached cottage occupies a lovely peaceful position in the large village of Congresbury and is within easy reach of picturesque countryside with a plethora of good walks on the doorstep.

The characterful property, named Sharpham Cottage, has a rich history dating back to 1809 when it was built. Over the course of time, the house has been thoughtfully extended and great care has been taken to preserve its timeless qualities.

Inside, the cosy sitting room has lovely ceiling beams, pretty window seats and a wood burner within a stone fireplace that is flanked by bookshelves.

The kitchen/dining room has a traditional farmhouse look seamlessly combining functionality with rustic charm. The classic kitchen has an array of oak units, stone flooring, ceiling beams and a central Aga.

Also on the ground floor is a small study, a shower room and a versatile room, currently used as a guest bedroom, that would work equally well as an additional office or family room.
