This is a stunning example of a period home – thought to date back to 1904 – which has been brought carefully and lovingly into the 21st century.

“We’ve loved living in Croome Cottage”- commented the current owners – “hidden behind holly hedges it combines period style living (lots of original features) with mod-cons (particularly the power showers in both bathrooms which are great to wake up to!).  It’s a warm, cosy house in the winter and a delight in the summer with a really private south-south westerly garden which gets the sun all the time!

“If you like candlelit winter evenings and summer al fresco eating, then Croome Cottage “fulfils the dream.”  However, we all need our practical comforts and the cottage has an abundance of good quality fixtures and fittings.  The sanitary-ware in both bathrooms is in pristine condition – we’ve maintained our property well.  The family kitchen/breakfast room is very inviting and ideal for get-togethers.  The rest of the house has a nice spacious feel to it with the large conservatory adding even more valuable space and there’s a really useful utility area.  Many people have told us that when they come through the door of Croome Cottage, they instantly feel its enormous charm and convivial atmosphere.

“Ash is such a convenient place to live – all the amenities but not too big thus retaining a “village” feel with lots of things for the family to do.  You can get everything you need here and with two railway stations and excellent bus services, getting about is easy.  The common is just across the road, where you can walk and cycle for miles.  Ash is a friendly village and we’ve had a lovely time living in the centre of it for a number of years.”

There’s no greater testament than that of someone who has lived in a house, made memories in the village, seen the house through the seasons, nurtured the gardens and moulded the period house into a modern home.
