Believed to date back to Tudor times, this enchanting, Grade II listed, two bedroom cottage is, quite simply, the stuff dreams are made of. Tucked away in the pretty hamlet of Great Gaddesden, less than 10 minutes` drive to Berkhamsted, it is the ideal rural getaway, yet near enough to a town when the need arises.

Steeped in history and bathed in character, with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and original 12 inch floorboards, this beautiful home will take your breath away as soon as you enter.

The sitting room features a stunning inglenook fireplace, with multifuel log burning stove. The kitchen boasts underfloor heating and the most attractive and stylish `Shaker` style units and oak worktops. A stable door leads out to a decked courtyard space which, although not huge, is large enough to entertain and has been cleverly dressed in sections to give privacy. From here, lovely views of the fields beyond are to be found.

Upstairs there are more characterful delights to be found; beams to ceilings and walls abound, while the second bedroom is accessed through a half-height door. The bathroom has been fitted with a beautiful, characterful `slipper` bath and corresponding sanitaryware.

Located close to the Church of St John the Baptist and the village school, this enchanting home offers the best of village life, yet just a stone`s throw from nearby towns.

Great Gaddesden is the most delightful hamlet, built around the historic 12th century church of St John the Baptist. It is steeped in history; the medieval convent of St Margarets, now a Buddhist Monastery, stands to the north-west, while the impressive Palladian country house, Gaddesden Place, is positioned to the east and is often used for filming. Directly adjacent to the church is the lovely Church-of-England primary school, and the hamlet is surrounded by beautiful countryside which is ideal for walkers and horse riding. The clear waters of the River Gade can also be found nearby.

Despite the sense of being very rural, Great Gaddesden is located a short drive from both the sought after market town of Berkhamsted, with its wide range of independent boutiques and restaurants, and the larger town of Hemel Hempstead, boasting a wider selection of shops and facilities, including Debenhams department store. Both towns offer mainline train services direct to London Euston in around 30 minutes.
