A delightful and deceptively spacious detached period family home which has been extended in recent years and lovingly refurbished by the current owners and now boasts five bedrooms, four reception rooms, outbuilding, garaging and beautifully tended gardens.
Rock Cottage dates back to 1863 and was once used as the outpost for the weighing of rocks in the area. This highly impressive country home has been lovingly renovated over the years to provide a perfect blend of old and new.
