2 Howe Combe Farm Cottage is a delightful Grade II Listed, thatched cottage with an immense amount of character. Formerly part of a farm, this brick and flint cottage is presented in good condition throughout and has retained many of its original features. Stepping into the cottage the sitting room features a beautiful Inglenook fireplace housing a log burner, exposed painted beams and a flagstone floor that runs throughout the ground floor. A door leads through to the kitchen with dining area. There are a number of storage units both above and below the worktop. There is an integrated oven and hob together with a Belfast sink.
On the first floor the master bedroom overlooks the garden, it has a vaulted ceiling and built in wardrobes. The second bedroom enjoys views to the front across the fields. Both bedrooms are serviced by a bathroom.

Situated in a wonderful rural area which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is approx 1.5 miles from Watlington, a small market town nestling in the foothills of the Chilterns. The town offers a variety of independent shops, a supermarket, butchers, post office, health centre, vets and a whole host more. The larger centres of Henley, Oxford and High Wycombe provide extensive recreational, educational and shopping facilities. There is an excellent Primary School within the village - Ofsted rated "Outstanding" and independent schools in the area include Rupert House, Moulsford, Cranford House and the Abingdon and Oxford schools are served by local buses. Local golf courses include the Oxfordshire, Huntercombe and Badgemore Park golf clubs. Outstanding walking and riding may be enjoyed in the surrounding Chiltern Hills. There is a mainline train service from High Wycombe to London Marylebone (from approx 25 minutes) and access to the M40 at Lewknor J6, about 3 miles. Also at Lewknor (Junction 6 of the M40) is the pick-up point for the London - Oxford Tube, a 24 hours a day bus service that runs directly into central London.

The gardens are a particular feature and are very much in keeping with this quintessential cottage. Bounded on one side by a mature beech hedge and a post and rail fence on the other. The lawn extends to the bottom of the garden and a gravel path leads alongside to a wooden Summer House. There is a patio just outside the Summer House and another patio is located directly off the entrance door to the property. At the front of the cottage there is a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles
