Property of the Day: Long Wood Cottage, Hinton Charterhouse

This detached home with a kitchen garden occupies a picturesque setting in a village near Bath

THE PROPERTY: Dating back to the 18th century, Long Wood Cottage was originally three separate dwellings that have since been converted into one. The double-fronted period property has an attractive honey-coloured façade that gives it a quintessentially English-cottage feel.

THE LOCATION: Situated at the edge of a peaceful village to the south of Bath, with the larger villages of Hinton Charterhouse, Norton St Philip and Freshford nearby, the property offers the benefits of a rural setting combined with access to the historic city of Bath, which is just five miles away. 

THE INTERIOR: The cottage is full of charming period features, including flagstone flooring, open fireplaces, exposed beams and high ceilings. The well-equipped kitchen has a rustic feel and all three of the principal reception-rooms are south-facing.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We particularly like the kitchen garden to the rear of the property, which backs onto a church and includes a pleasant seating and dining area.
