Located in the hamlet of Doddington situated between Cleobury Mortimer and Ludlow, this pretty country cottage enjoys far reaching views out across the Shropshire countryside and beyond into Wales. Amenities including a shop, public house and doctors surgery can be found in the nearby village of Clee Hill. Cleobury Mortimer and Ludlow both provide further shops, public houses, restaurants and primary and secondary schools. Excellent transport facilities are available in Ludlow with regular bus and train routes and good road links to larger towns.

A long gated driveway leads you up to a large pakring area, with ample parking for a number of vehicles. The cottage is nestled in the top back corner of the plot, ensuring that it takes full advantage of the large garden in front and beautiful views beyond.

The front door leads into a charming entrance hallway with solid Oak flooring, exposed beams and stonework and stairs rising to the first floor with storage cupboard beneath.

To the right of the entrance hall is the kitchen which enjoys windows to two elevations enjoying the countryside views. The fitted kitchen has a range of country style base and wall units. There is an inset oven, hob and space for an undercounter fridge and washing machine. To the left of the entrance hall is a beautiful living space with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbering, skylights and a continuation of the Oak floor. Here, a fabulous stone feature fireplace with inset wood burner and windows and door out to the garden and seating area, overlooking the views beyond. There is ample space for both seating and a family dining table.

To the rear of the hall is a good sized double ground floor bedroom with character beams. Depending on buyers requirements it could lend itself to being a more formal dining room or snug. Upstairs, the second bedroom which again is a good sized double has exposed timbering, fitted cupboards and spectacular views. Across the landing is the family bathroom which comprises bath, WC and wash hand basin.

Outside, the large patio wraps around the cottage, offering a variety of seating areas to sit and enjoy the sun and rural views, it is a fantastic space for entertaining during the summer months especially due to the South facing aspect. In front of this is a gentle sloping garden which is predominantly laid to lawn, there are floral borders with an array of colourful plants. The whole plot is bordered by mature trees and hedging ensuring privacy.

This is a real hidden gem, that needs to be seen to fully appreciate everything that is on offer.

Previous owners have sought planning approval (now expired) for an external bedroom suite and a ground floor bathroom extension off the downstairs bedroom and separately, the erection of a garage with accommodation above (also now expired). Similar or new schemes STPP would possibly be considered.
