Lambs Cottage lies on the outskirts of the charming village of Yattendon, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by unspoilt wood and farmland owned by Yattendon Estates. This popular village, which sits mid-way between Newbury and Pangbourne, has a range of amenities including a village school, shop, hairdresser, coffee shop and deli as well as the charming village pub, The Royal Oak. Surrounded by some of the prettiest and unspoilt countryside in the area there are plenty of public footpaths and bridleways from which to enjoy it. There are local shops and services in Pangbourne and good access to Reading and Newbury. Communications to London and the rest of the country are excellent by road via the M4 and A34 and by rail via Pangbourne or Theale stations.

The Property
Lambs Cottage dates back to the mid-18th century and has been beautifully looked after and modernised over recent years. The accommodation is well laid out with good-sized reception rooms, comfortable bedrooms and is full of character and charm. Beautiful reclaimed French oak flooring is laid throughout the main part of the downstairs and the drawing room has a large open inglenook fireplace housing a log burning stove. Individually designed windows and doors have been handmade through-out. The property has been extended, however there is potential to add a conservatory/orangery onto the kitchen which could create a very large entertaining area. The cottage is set back from the road and enjoys a beautiful outlook on all sides, overlooking the garden.
Accessed from the drive or from the garden is the large garage and oak framed annexe. The annexe is a fantastic area consisting of one large space and a bathroom. It has large glazed doors to the front overlooking the garden and lets in lots of natural light. Currently the annexe is used as a guest room and spacious study, however it has been used as a home office over the years and could equally be used as a separate living space or play room.

The garden is well-established and beautifully managed and is a delightful feature of this property. To the rear is a fine south west facing garden mainly laid to lawn with well stocked herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees together with wooden decking running the length of the house at the rear. The front of the house is approached by a gravel driveway and the front garden laid to lawn with a tiled path up to the front door. To the side of the drive leading away from the house is a large orchard.
