Littlecombe Cottage is approached via a quiet winding track with a number of pretty period properties. There is additional parking in front of the detached double garage, with a gate leading to the garden and pathway to the front door. The rear garden is of a generous size, sloping down to meet a small brook at the bottom which is fenced off, with the triangle of land beyond encompassed within the curtilage of Littlecombe Cottage. There is a substantial outbuilding/summer house which has in the past been used as a home office, but currently is used as a games room. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with one decking area located outside the kitchen, which is elevated and enjoys the vista over the garden and a second deck leading out from the family room. To the side of and separate from the cottage is a further log store and store room which adjoins the property next door.
