This Grade II listed, detached cottage dates back to the 16th century and was formerly a farmhouse, an inn and an early Quaker meeting house. The timber frame, exposed beams and thatched roof give the house bags of character and are ideal for people who like a property that is steeped in history. The property is set back off the village road with a large front garden, high hedging and a double entry driveway. The owners have maintained the property to a very good standard. You can read all about the history of the house in the owner’s notes. Ideal for families or groups, there are three large bedrooms inside and a separate fourth bedroom with en-suite in the detached garden room. For those who like outdoor activities, there are beautiful, established large gardens front and rear, and even a treadmill room. Situated in the small village of Weston Turville, guests are on the edge of the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a paradise for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. A mountain biking centre, Go Ape in Wendover Woods, the Ridgeway, Chequers, Waddeston Manor, Ashridge Estate, Dunstable Downs, Whiteleaf Hill, Ivinghoe Beacon and Whipsnade provide lots to explore locally.
