Opposite is the privately owned medieval castle where King Henry VIII once stayed and from which Castle Cottage takes its name. This appealing corner plot offers fine views across ancient parkland extending to the river Derwent.

Delightfully renovated accommodation retaining many original features
Large corner plot with fine outlook
Beautiful, landscaped gardens featuring manicured lawns and colourful borders

Nearly 30ft in length, the impressive sitting/dining room has a cast iron stove (gas), traditional-style column radiator and a number of original exposed beams. In addition, there is a family room with a parquet wooden floor, remote-controlled Optimyst stove and column radiator, enjoying west facing views across the front garden and parkland beyond.

The family sized, fitted country kitchen has a Belling induction hob and built-in cooker with a useful utility room alongside. An adjoining breakfast room gives access to the garden terrace and links to the garden room with its south facing French doors and wonderful outlook across the entire width of the garden.

There is a principal bedroom suite with an en suite shower room complete with traditional style heated towel rail and independent under floor heating to the tiled floor. There are five further bedrooms and two additional bathrooms. Original bedrooms to the first floor have exposed beams and period fireplaces and the family bathroom contains an Air spa bath with separate power shower. Two further bedrooms are located on the second floor and would make an ideal space for older children having an independent bathroom.

There are ample options for family storage including understairs storage and fitted cupboards on the second floor.

Electric wrought iron gates open to the drive where there is ample parking for at least four cars in front of the large detached double garage with electric up and over doors and extensive storage space. The landscaped garden is unusually wide and wraps around the property. It is designed for enjoyment having multiple seating areas, sculpted, paved and gravelled, with trellises and pergolas to add structure and variety.  A silver birch stands sentinel on the northern corner, and the whole is bounded by a clipped leylandii hedge.  The superb, detached summer house is beautifully designed and includes a paved dining terrace alongside with designated barbecue area.
