Nene cottage is a delightful stone and thatched cottage, dating from the late 17th Century and sympathetically extended in the latter half of the 20th Century. The cottage is Listed Grade II and sits witin the Conservation area at the end of the lane, close to the river and the path leading across the field to the church.

Nene Cottage has an abundance of character and original features, such as deep silled windows,exposed joinery and some lovely floorboards. There are also latched doors. The accommodation is set over two floors.

There is a front door, but as with most country cottages, the door most frequently used for access is the kitchen door, which leads in from the garden path. The kitchen is fitted with a basic range of wall and base units with work-surfaces and a sink. There is space for a cooker, a fridge and a washing machine. There are windows to the garden and a lovely view down the lane.

A step leads up to the inner hall where there is a door off to the dining room and the a second door to the bathroom. This is fitted with a WC, wash basin and bath. The dining cum sitting room is in the oldest part of the house. There are windows to the front and rear elevations. The fireplace within the inglenook is a cosy focal point. A door leads through to a small hall which serves the front door.

Stairs lead from the sitting room to the first floor where there is a large landing that can serve as a study area. A window looks across the paddock opposite, to the river. There are lovely wide floorboards. The original timber studs are exposed in the partition walling. There are doors off to either end, to the bedrooms.

The first bedroom has a dormer window to the front and doors opening to the balcony (balcony unsafe -currently not in use) which gives a great view over the garden and fields beyond.

The second bedroom has a window to the front with a pleasing outlook, and is a comfortable double room.

The house sits as the end of Church Lane with the river and the church fields nearby. A dry stone wall serves as the front boundary and a hand gate opens to the path which leads to the kitchen door. The lawn runs away from the house down towards the timber garage and the drive, which provides parking. There is a further lawn beyond.
