Property Description

The Cottage

Originally with two bedrooms, Baytree Cottage has been converted to create a luxurious one bedroom home.  This utterly charming Georgian cottage is nestled in the tranquil village of Swanton Novers, with a pretty front garden and driveway parking and a lovely cottage garden to the rear with open countryside views. 

The cottage is beautifully presented throughout with generous living space downstairs, including a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove, separate dining room with doors out to the gardens, well equipped kitchen, utility area and bathroom downstairs.  Upstairs is a wonderful bedroom, spacious and elegant with two windows out to the front.

The sitting room has a wonderfully peaceful feeling, the large sash window to the front floods the room with natural light from the front garden and a wealth of original features, cast iron radiators, beam across the ceiling and centrepiece Georgian fire surround housing the wood burning stove all add to the ambience.  The dining room is to the side and is another light and airy room with two sets of French doors opening to the front and rear gardens and a Velux window.  A versatile space with room for a dining table and a work desk.

The modern fitted kitchen is well equipped with an integrated electric hob, fan assisted oven and under counter fridge.  The adjacent utility space is perfect for housing a washing machine or washer drier.

The lovely family bathroom is to the rear of the cottage, featuring a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs the bedroom is an oasis of calm, with original varnished floorboards, a feature fireplace, cast iron radiator and two sash windows.  There is ample space for a super king size bed, bedroom furniture and occasional chair.


Approached from the quiet village street, there is a gated, gravelled driveway with pretty walled garden to the front.

To the rear, the pretty cottage garden is well planted with flowers and shrubs with a gravelled terrace, perfect for outside dining, leading to the fence looking out over the lovely fields and woodland beyond.

Baytree Cottage has been a truly loved second home for the current owners and a super successful holiday let when they are not in residence.  Its character and charm attract repeat guests year after year and because it is suited to couples looking for the perfect peaceful retreat, is busy throughout the year and not reliant upon school holidays.

Baytree Cottage could be available with much of the furniture and fittings (by separate negotiation), please contact the team at Big Skies for more details on what might be left and for more information on holiday letting.
