THE Sarn is a charming part-timbered, Grade II listed cottage with origins in the 1600s. There are many period features including floorboards, doors and exposed timbers. Reception space is excellent with the sitting room, dining room and study all of good proportions and the wonderfully cosy snug houses a Rayburn stove. To the first floor are two delightful bedrooms and a bathroom.

Located off the kitchen and also benefiting from its own external access, the annexe has self-contained accommodation comprising a sitting room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with a kitchenette. Some improvement and modernisation could further benefit this property which has been home to the present artist/writer vendor for over 20 years. Lovely views of the castle ruin and the stunning surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from many of the rooms.

The garden at lies largely to the rear of the property and is the perfect complement to the cottage. Mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous and flowering borders, there are some mature trees ensuring a good deal of privacy with several seating areas tucked away from where to enjoy the peace and tranquillity on offer. To the side of the house, there is parking and a carport.
