The Property

Folly Cottage is a charming period house in an idyllic location, with glorious distant views over rolling countryside. This delightful home retains great character and offers comfortable living accommodation arranged over two floors. On the ground floor there is a double aspect sitting room with an open fireplace, a snug/family room and a lovely ‘John Lewis of Hungerford’ kitchen/breakfast room with a stable style door opening onto a pretty sun terrace. There is also a new conservatory, a rear lobby and a shower room. Upstairs, four generous sized bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The cottage offers potential for further extension subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission.

The Outside

A five bar gate opens onto a sweeping gravel driveway which can accommodate several cars. The cottage stands in lovely mature gardens interspersed with a wide variety of trees and shrubs including beautiful Azalea’s and Rhododendron’s. There is a wide lawn at the front and an attractive red brick paved terrace. There are two sun terraces, one at the side of the cottage and one at the rear. A gentle stream runs through the garden into the neighbouring meadow. The garden offers a good degree of seclusion. Directly opposite the property, just across the lane, there is approximately one acre of mature mixed woodland, a potting shed and a garage.


Folly Cottage is located in the highly sought after village of Inkpen. Approached via an unadopted lane, the cottage stands in formal gardens of approximately one acre, with a further acre of woodland situated just across the lane. Inkpen benefits from two public houses, a pre-school, primary school, village hall, monthly farmers market and miles of picturesque countryside. The pretty market Town of Hungerford, just four miles drive, is steeped in History and sits on the banks of the chalk stream River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon canal. The Town is well served by a variety of shops including butchers, bakers, independent retailers and of course antique shops. Other amenities include two supermarkets, post office, banks and doctors surgery. There is a swimming pool, sports centre and tennis club.
