Rose Cottage is a beautiful 1600’s Grade II Listed cottage, found in a quiet and stunning rural hamlet setting. The owners are about to rethatch the whole of the main cottage, using water reed which offers a lifespan of over 40 years.
The character filled accommodation extends to over 170sqm / 1,950sqft and includes three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, with the master also enjoying a dressing area and en-suite shower room. In addition there is a white suite family bathroom also found upstairs. A large study/snug which serves the guest (third) bedroom gives it great potential to be adapted to create an internal annexe quite easily. The living room is particularly special, it measures over 6.5m / 21ft has a beautiful fireplace with wood-burning stove and a window seat. There is a kitchen with oak worktops, Rangemaster cooker (available by separate negotiation) with hood and an integrated dishwasher and fridge, with a dining area adjoining plus a handy utility room and a downstairs cloakroom with WC. The cottage enjoys oil-fired central heating throughout.
Outside: In total the plot extends to around 1.25 acres. The cottage and superb gardens surrounding reach 0.61acres and there is a separate paddock on the opposite side of the lane.
The large gardens flow superbly with meandering lawns, numerous flower beds and borders with an array of flowers growing. Mature trees offer some shady areas on hot days and a gently flowing stream gives a real feeling of tranquility with farmland just beyond the boundary fence.
There is generous off-road parking (11m wide by 6.1m deep) in front of the former stable block, which is now used as a garage and workshop (light, power & water in place) – this offers potential to create ancillary accommodation to the main home (subject to permissions) or to keep a horse as the previous owners did.
The paddock is located directly opposite the main home and is enclosed and grassed with very mature trees to the top. With the addition of a shepherd’1.2s hut or similar (STP) it would offer an amazing get away retreat.

Woolfardisworthy is just over a mile away from Kennerleigh which is a village truly undisturbed by modernisation, sitting in an exquisite and rural part of Devon, on the verges of a shady, forested valley. It lies on the road to Black Dog and Thelbridge, 4 miles north of the market town of Crediton. Kennerleigh has a traditional style village shop/ post office – that stocks a diverse range of items and local produce. In addition, it features a wonderful example of a Norman church. A short drive away finds the larger village of Sandford, and one of finest pubs in the county; The Lamb Inn – with many accolades, mouth watering food and ales (and an open fire with the odd Jack Russell trotting about). For a modern selection of facilities Crediton is the place, with superb schools (both primary and secondary), a regular farmers market, a leisure centre, a host of interesting shops and two supermarkets.
