For the quaint cottage nestling in the Malvern Hills has features from medieval times, the Victorian era and is also bang up to date with 21st Century living. But the best feature is one which the estate agents selling it say they have “never seen before”.

And for your money you get loads of historical, original features. The most unique of these is a very rare medieval cart barn – something the agents selling it say they have seen before.
Cart barns were the medieval equivalent of the modern garage and were used to house carts and carriages. The one at Mouchers Corner is the original and still in good condition.
The cottage also has a Victorian cast iron range and an Inglenook fireplace with the original bread oven. But as well as all these olde world features there is also superfast broadband ensuring working from home is possible.
On the ground floor there is an entrance porch and a sitting room, dining room with vaulted ceiling. There’s another lounge, kitchen, dining area and wet room.
To get up to the first floor you have a choice of two separate staircases. On this level you’ll find a master bedroom with ensuite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside there is the medieval cart barn, a stable barn and enclosed gardens. It is also just a short walk away from the local pub.
