For those not familiar with the term ‘listed’ this means the cottage “is judged to be of national importance in terms of architectural or historic interest” by Historic England and placed on the National Heritage list for England and therefore, protected for future generations.

The cottage was bought in 2013 by a British couple currently living in the United States as their own British home away from home and as such has been renovated to the highest standard. For the last six years the cottage has been awarded not only four stars but also the gold award by EnjoyEngland.
