This beautiful 16th century thatched cottage is situated on the edge of the small village of Ebbesbourne Wake, and is a self-catering cottage for four people.
The Blue Cottage nestles beneath a hill, surrounded by a large sunny garden with rough-cut grass, plenty of trees, many of them old, and views across pasture land. It is approached by a very short track, shared by one other house, and feels completely secluded, although it is only about three hundred metres to the village centre with its church and pub (which serves excellent home-cooked food).
The main part of the cottage was built in the 16th century, with thick cob walls and a large inglenook fireplace. An extension was built about a century later (from half-way across the left-hand bedroom window in the picture above), which has resulted in a most unusual layout to the second bedroom, which is partly divided in two by the original end wall of the cottage.
There is an extension at the rear which includes a large kitchen and the bathroom. Available all year round.
