Playford is a "small gem in a beautiful setting." It is a characterful black and white thatched cottage situated in a rural setting with grounds and woodland measuring approximately 1.5 acres.

Located just outside the village of Much Marcle this cottage offers charm and character that is associated with a traditional property of this age. Having been lovingly looked after by its current owners over the past 20 years this is a wonderfully rare opportunity to own a Grade II listed cottage.

The grounds are vast, with a level area of lawns, mature trees, shrubs and vegetable patch close to the house with a number of outbuildings. Towards the far end of the garden is a small woodland area idea for exploring and enjoying all the garden has to offer.

Recent improvements include a new kitchen and re-decorated.

On the ground floor there are three reception rooms - a sitting room with a stunning inglenook fireplace with a gas fire, a dining room with exposed stone (access into the master bedroom via a hatch) and a flexible reception room. A re-fitted bathroom and a WC. With exposed beams and quaint original features.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. Views across open ground from most windows.

There is off road parking for several vehicles and access o the rear garden & woodland area. The roof was re-thatched in 2016/17.
