Hob Cottage, East End Road, Charlton Kings, Cheltenham GL53 8QW
Tucked away at the end of a gravel driveway this beautiful 1850s enchanting cottage is an absolute hidden gem. Quietly set on the outskirts of the Charlton Kings village yet within walking distance of Balcarras and St Edwards Schools, Charlton Kings and Glenfall Primary Schools, shops, cafes, pubs and GP Surgery. The cottage is no more than 5 minutes from the countryside in a number of directions, great for walking, with or without a dog.
Sipping your Pimms whilst sitting in the garden looking at the characterful cottage you could imagine you were on vacation amongst the tranquil Cotswold villages.
Hob Cottage, set in picturesque, mature gardens welcomes you through either the front door or stable door into the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, wonderfully lit with a recently installed roof lantern and large window overlooking the outside eating area and gardens.
