A delightful refurbished period cottage with a substantial two storey outbuilding and walled garden situated in the heart of this picturesque village.

Dating back to 1723 the cottage has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to a high standard by the current owner. The accommodation briefly comprises: A well appointed kitchen/dining room, thoughtfully designed with granite worktops, an induction hob and built in appliances; utility room, wc, and sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and bay window to the front. The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating throughout. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both en-suite with built in wardrobes. Outside there is a lawned garden to the front and a sunny courtyard garden to the rear.

The two storey outbuilding is in need of updating and (subject to the necessary planning consents) could be used for a variety of purposes (such as a home office/studio, for holiday letting or as an annex). The outbuilding overlooks a large south westerly facing walled garden.


The villages of Cherington and Stourton sit on the northern tip of the Cotswold hills, just 5 miles outside of the historic market town of Shipston on Stour. Both villages remain beautifully unspoilt - surrounded by rolling Warwickshire countryside, they predominantly consist of attractive cottages built from local limestone and brick. The villages are within easy travelling distance of the surrounding larger centres of Shipston on Stour (4 miles), Stratford upon Avon (15 miles), Banbury (11 miles) and Moreton in Marsh (7 miles) which offer a variety of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities. The train station at Moreton in Marsh provides a direct line between Worcester and London Paddington (via Oxford), and the Shipston Link offers a regular bus service to Shipston, Banbury and Chipping Norton. Cherington is home to the popular Cherington Arms public house and the renowned Cotswold Distillery is located in Stourton, where the the award winning Cotswold Gin is made (in addition to a broad range of other spirits) using locally grown raw ingredients. The residents of both Cherington & Stourton enjoy vibrant village life. St John the Baptist church in Cherington holds regular, well attended services and there are also several groups that meet within the village in addition to events held such as the village flower show. Both Cherington & Stourton fall within the priority catchment area for Brailes C of E Primary School, and Shipston High School for secondary education.
