Charming Cottages on the Market

While cottages have always been some of the most coveted properties in the UK, the attraction to quaint countryside homes these days is the refreshingly simple lifestyle that comes with moving to a cosy cottage away from the city. As such, we’ve scoured the country for 10 of the most charming cottages on the market right now…
1. Farnborough, Kent, 3 bedrooms

This charming three-bedroom, former Gamekeepers cottage, built circa 1750 offers a wealth of character. Set over three floors, the property consists of two reception rooms, a conservatory kitchen, utility room, additional shower room and family bathroom to the ground floor with stairs down to a quaint basement study/bedroom. The second floor has two double bedrooms with original beams. Externally, the wraparound garden with south facing lawn, includes a large barn, garage and generous driveway for several cars. 
2. Salterton, Devon, 5 bedrooms

This beautiful Grade II Listed and extended detached thatched character cottage is set in private gardens and grounds of just under 0.75 acres. The cottage is located in a quiet semi rural location with wonderful views over the Otter Valley blending both old and new accommodation to great effect.

Elizabethan Cottage is a stunning stone built thatched cottage situated at the edge of the sought-after village of Upton with fantastic gardens and views over open countryside towards the village church. Steeped in classic and charming features, from the ingle nook fireplace to exposed beam ceilings; this home’s delightful interior certainly matches up to its chocolate-box kerb appeal. 
4. Fowey, Cornwall, 1 bedroom
