Cloudshill is an excellently presented stone and thatch barn conversion in a lovely courtyard setting and set back away from passing traffic in this unspoilt village. This characterful cottage is one of a small number of old Horton stone former farm buildings arranged around an attractive shingled courtyard and tucked away behind the superb Grade I listed Tithe Barn built c1400 restored by English Heritage and now used as a museum. The property was converted in 1984.

The property is full of character and rather spacious offering a wonderful combination of tradition alongside modern comforts with a newly installed kitchen and family bathroom offering modern amenities along with LPG gas central heating; then we have traditional character in abundance throughout the property from the attractive front door and entrance hallway through to the kitchen stable door and thatched roof to mention a couple. The property really must be viewed to be fully appreciated. The kitchen and sitting room both lead out on to the cottage gardens with a terraced patio area, lawn and well established garden. Following the cottage garden down some steps and admiring the open countryside views, we have another garden area hidden from view where the LPG gas tanks are stored. The ground floor of the property also has a cloakroom and useful storage room off the kitchen. Upstairs are to be found two generous sized double bedrooms, a recently modernised family bathroom and en-suite and off the upstairs landing are a couple of useful storage cupboards with electric and shelving. The loft is boarded and has a loft ladder.

The thatched roof has just been re-thatched at the front and ridge and re-dressed at the rear and the size-able garage is set in a block and is the 3rd from the left. There is no onward chain for this property.
