Paddock cottage was once owned by Houghton Hall estate and dates back to circa 1850, it was originally two cottages which were converted into one and later extended in 1994. The front windows are the original cast iron windows which are we are told are the only ones left in the village. The garage was built in 1991 and has been designed to be used as separate accommodation which would make an ideal annexe or holiday cottage subject to relevant planning. This is a charming family home and really needs to be viewed to appreciate all that it has to offer.
