Take the next turning left into Fosse Lane (which is a private lane) and Sundial Cottage will be seen a short distance on the right hand side.

There are mainline train stations situated at Moreton-in-Marsh (4 miles) and Kingham (5 miles) with regular services to London Paddington via Oxford and Reading.

Cheltenham, 18 miles, is the principal commercial and cultural centre in the area and has excellent shopping facilities with most of the nationally known High Street retailers represented.

Sundial Cottage is a delightful bungalow believed to have been constructed in the 1950's and has been within the ownership of the same family for over 50 years. It is constructed of reconstituted Cotswold stone under a pitched and tiled roof. It has a centrally positioned gabled entrance with further gable to one side. It retains its original leaded light casement windows with bullseye glass.

Sundial Cottage is well positioned within this private lane with a charming front garden planted with a variety of bulbs, flowers and shrubs. The paved and gravelled drive leads to the side and to the single garage and access to the large rear garden.

Sundial Cottage is a particularly spacious property with two formal reception rooms together with a kitchen and breakfast room. In addition there are two double bedrooms, bathroom and large inner hall.

Sundial Cottage has a substantial roof space and subject to any necessary consents lends itself to significant alteration and extension, particularly to take advantage of the lovely gardens.
