Additionally Oxford, Wallingford and Henley on Thames are all within easy driving distance. Similarly the large village of Sonning Common and Caversham a suburb of Reading are both in close proximity and offer good shopping facilities and amenities.

The surrounding rural area is particularly scenic and designated an A.O.N.B.

Well Cottage is a delightful countryside home, part thatched and dating from the 17th Century. Internally it affords spacious family accommodation and has been modernised and presented in a beautiful contemporary fashion, embracing the character of the property and blending old with new.

The front door opens into a light and airy vaulted Reception Hall, leading off which is a spacious Sitting Room with wood burning stove in inglenook fireplace, a contemporary Kitchen with open plan Breakfast Room, separate Dining Room, Utility/Boot Room and ground floor Double Bedroom and Bathroom.

The gardens wrap around to the side where there is a useful paved patio area and further lawned garden with large Summer House. To the front of the cottage, off the driveway are two large store rooms with opportunity for a variety of potential uses.
