Suprisingly spacious thatched cottage with views over surrounding Normandy countryside.

Delightful detached well presented thatched cottage which would be ideal as a holiday cottage or for full time occupation.  It is a stone built cottage with a thatched roof (which has been overhauled with a new ridge, chimney flashing and weatherproofing in 2017) . The boiler was replaced about 6 years ago and the property benefits from double glazed windows with shutters installed in 2007/8, a recent kitchen and bathroom.  There is also a detached thatched studio which would lend itself to a small gîte.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated on the outskirts of Town with local walking, and fishing. Extensive recreational facilities can be found nearby including local waterfalls and walking clubs, canoeing and outdoor sports.
