Hope Cottage, BrightwaltonAbout this home

Hope Cottage is located on the edge of the thriving and very popular Downland village of Brightwalton, surrounded by fabulous rolling countryside with wonderful views. The property was originally a farm worker cottage believed to date from the 16th century, which at a later date incorporated the storage barn to create the wonderful kitchen/breakfast/family room. As you would expect in a cottage of this period, there are many original features including attractive fireplaces and exposed beams. There is a recently built timber garage with an annexe above, in front of which is a charming kitchen garden with raised beds. A wide terrace runs along the rear of the cottage which is ideal for entertaining and looks out over the garden, laid mainly to lawn and surrounded by mature hedges, shrubs, trees and mixed flower borders.
