This “charming and characterful” cottage for sale is more than 200 years old and was once the village smithy.

The house was owned by the Edwards family, and was burnt down and rebuilt in approximately 1800, later being passed by marriage to Dr John Rogers. 

The property is on the market for the first time in more than fifty years, and a wing to the north of the home is thought to have once been a dairy.
