Primrose Cottage believed to date back to the 1680s is nestled away in the peaceful rural hamlet of Upper Minety in between the villages of Oaksey and Minety on the fringes of the Cotswold Water Park. The cottage has a wealth of period charm the perfect holiday home or idyllic country home.

You approach the cottage via a gate, and as you pass through the storm porch and the front door you are welcomed to an inviting entrance hall with stunning stone flooring throughout downstairs. Stairs lead to the first floor with access through to the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

Head through to the living room on your left and you will find more of the period features, cast iron radiators, wooden beams and dual-aspect windows. The exposed stone fireplace houses the log burner which is perfect for those chilly autumn afternoons. Back to the hall and across to the dining room which again offers both charm and period features. The wooden beams and open fireplace make the dining room the perfect place to enjoy good food and good company.

Heading through to the kitchen you will find a bright and inviting space to whip up your culinary delights. The double doors leading to the garden and electrically operated Velux window flood the kitchen with natural light. There is plenty of cupboard and workspace, an electric oven and hob, an integrated dishwasher, and space for a breakfast table. The flooring is beautifully handmade terracotta tiles, just off the kitchen is a generous utility room, you could perhaps add a WC if required.

Back to the hall and you will find the bathroom which is still in keeping with a cottage but has a bright and modern feel. There is both a freestanding bath and a separate shower, with a basin and WC. Head upstairs and you are welcomed to a very generous landing area which is currently the perfect office space. Heading right, you have the master a large dual-aspect room looking out over the garden. Across the landing area is another generous double bedroom looking out over the front.

Outside the front garden is a generous lawn area enclosed by hedges and mature trees. The rear private courtyard is simply beautiful and has been so cleverly created to provide a tranquil spot to dream away hours in front of a fire pit. To the right of the front door is a useful boiler room/ garden store. There is a well in the garden waiting to be explored. Past the lawn and you find the driveway for two/three cars. The impressive oak frame and cedar-clad double garage has been well built complete with an inspection pit for any car enthusiast. Stairs to your right lead you upstairs to a useful space which is the perfect storage room or the sellers have added plenty of insulation so it could perhaps be a home office.

Primrose Cottage is in the peaceful Hamlet of Upper Minety. Minety is close by which offers a primary and pre-school and a fabulous village shop.
