This picturesque Stratton cottage dates back to the 1800s and is on the market for just £265k - less than Britain’s average house price of £294k.

Comfrey Cottage is just seconds away from St Andrew’s Church, which was created in the 12th century and used to house a jail, with a door studded with the word ‘clink’ still visible today.

At the end of its row of cottages, Comfrey is the closest to the church and is near to the village green, and has been Grade II listed for its notable historical features.

The cottage retains 19th century window casements and a rendered chimney at the right gable end.

Inside, the house features an inglenook stone fireplace with a slate hearth, a clome oven recess and a wood mantel, as well as wood doors and exposed beams.

The cottage is made up of a living room, two bedrooms and bathrooms, and a kitchen/dining room with views over the patio and towards the village.

The property is being marketed by estate agents Webbers, who have listed it at a price of £265k.

John Tape of Webbers commented: “A very well presented two-bedroom end of terrace Grade II listed cob cottage with a wealth of character features, enjoying a tucked away yet central location to this popular, historic village offered to the market with no onward chain.”

  • An earlier version of this article stated that the roof had asbestos, as per the Historic England listing. It has now brought to our attention that this has since been rectified, with formal planning permission sought to do so. We are happy to clarify this.
