River Cottage is a delightful three bedroom Grade II listed house within the popular village of Iwerne Minster which benefits from a post office/village shop, inn and sports centre. Believed to be about 200 years old and constructed from part brick and part cob under a clay tiled roof, the cottage has evolved over the years whilst retainig many period features. The current owers have re-rendered both sides of the original property with a lime based render and installed a new shower room on the second floor. There is a charming sitting room, both the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room, with vaulted ceilings, open onto the garden terrace and overlook the delightful garden. . The gardens are a major feature of the property and are bounded by mixed hedges. There is a gravel parking area to the front of the house and the main gardens lie to the rear and straddle the stream. Outside the kitchen/breakfast room is a gravel terrace together with a vegetable area. A wooden bridge and stepping stones cross the stream to the main area of garden which is mainly laid to lawn with numerous shrub and flower borders providing interesting colour throughout the year. The garden is private being well hedged with a variety of species and there are a number of fine specimen trees, including lime and liquid amber.
