Wistral Lodge is a very interesting smallholding in that there are two completely detached self contained 2 bedroom single storey units and a third detached unit (previously a kennel block and without residential planning but currently used for overflow accommodation) all set in just over 6 acres of very nice flat/gently sloping pastureland, a little woodland and a lovely large pond area up near the woodland. In the main house there is an attractive kitchen/diner, shower room, lounge and 2 bedrooms. In the detached annex there is a conservatory, separate wc, shower room, kitchen/diner, lounge and two bedrooms also. In the detached outbuilding (without planning) there is a kitchen/diner, separate wc, shower room, lounge and one room used as a may be possible to get holiday use consent on this unit if this were of interest. Although the properties could use a general refresh throughout the holding is set in a quiet rural location with good views from the land and with potentially (subject to planning) three detached properties onsite this proposition has lots of future possibilities.

There are conveniently 2 access gates into the property, one for each Cottage.
There are various outbuildings for storage scattered around the large yard area to the side of the Cottages.The yard area provides for access up into the pastureland (split into two large paddocks), one of which has been regularly cut to provide a healthy sward of grass.The second paddock currently has a few sheep on it.
The large pond and woodland area at the top of the land would be a beautiful place to camp out in the summer and have barbeques etc as it is a very pretty natural and unspoilt area.
Lawned gardens are to be found to the front and rear of the Cottages with a small pond and mature trees.
Although we have listed this property in November(and consequently the pictures dont do it justice in winter) we would imagine that in high summer this is a super place to chill out and enjoy life.
The land is all to the rear of the two Cottages and split into 3 main areas, two main large paddocks and a woodland / pond area. In all just over 6 acres. The paddock immediately behind the Cottages would need stockproof fencing on one side if stock were to be kept there as its currently effectively one large lawned area.
The Woodland and Pond Area is fenced off and gated and provides a superb natural environment with some lovely views.
