The current owners of this cottage have significantly extended and upgraded Bears Cottage over their 19-years at the property. Originally a two bedroom cottage and named Old Cottage, the property was extended in 2010. It was reroofed in 2017 and had a new Worcester oil-fired combination boiler in 2016. It is believed the cottage originally had a thatched roof but this was replaced before the current owners purchased the property. The family currently run a licensed dog breeding business from the property with seven outbuildings in the rear garden. These could easily be adapted for any number of business uses or used as home offices or workshops. Equally these could easily be removed - returning the garden back into one large area.
