Chocolate box symmetry
Around the bend along a picturesque country lane, where the main passing traffic consists of bicycles and horses, the handsome symmetrical front of Cockers Hey peeps into view.

Dating back to the 1870s, three former cottages, modernised around 15-20 years ago, comprise Cockers Hey.

With ample parking for around four cars, in addition to a large garage, leave the car and make your way to the front stable door.

Pull off your Dubarry boots and hang your Barbour coat in the porch, making your way into the open and airy entrance hall.

Feel the hygge embrace instantly, through the combination of white walls and exposed timber beams. A handy cupboard for coats and boots is found just on the left.

Country comforts
Cosy and warm, light and bright, a feature fireplace is stacked with wood, whilst pine flooring extends underfoot. Throughout the home, Scandi style emanates in the décor, using colours found in nature for a soft, enveloping feel.

Ahead, the wooden staircase rises up, with glass framed in ancient beams delivering a sneak preview of the snug lounge to the left.

Beneath the staircase, take the door through to the spacious open-plan dining room and lounge to the rear, featuring dining table, sofas and even a piano. Exposed beams above add an intimate feel, counterbalanced by the light pine underfoot. Light fills the room courtesy of windows and two sets of French doors, opening out to connect this entertaining space with the extensive patio outdoors.

A home with flow
In summer, throw open the doors and embrace indoor-out living, dining alfresco in the sunshine amidst the fragrance of the flowers. In wintertime, snuggle up in front of the warmth of the curved Nordic log-burning stove listening to music or chatting with family and friends. Textures of velvet, leather and sheepskin sourced from Neptune evoke a comforting feel.

Returning to the entrance hall, cross the room and open the glass door into the snug, a cosy and welcoming room, where exposed beams add warmth. French doors opening out to the patio ensure ample light flow, with views over the garden also framed through a large window.

OWNER QUOTE: “We often watch television in here, it’s a cosy place in winter with candles, the home has a lovely flow.”
Feast your eyes
Turning right out of the snug, arrive at the kitchen, a homely room where red quarry tiles extend warmly underfoot. Decorated in blue-grey Neptune paint, this kitchen-diner draws in daylight through a number of windows, offering views out over the fields.

Warmth emanates from the two-oven electric-eco Aga, whilst an abundance of cupboards and drawers offers storage for crockery and cutlery. Dine looking out over the garden and fields, watching for the multitude of visiting birds from the red legged partridge to pheasants, ducks and ducklings. Integrated appliances also include a Bosch dishwasher, under-counter fridge and Belfast sink inset within granite worktop.

Beyond, a utility room houses further storage and also accommodates a fridge, freezer and plumbing for a washer-dryer.

Sweet dreams
From the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the large landing. Turning left, arrive at a double bedroom dressed in shades of white and blue, looking out towards the countryside.

Retracing your steps, continue ahead and turn left, noting the abundance of fitted wardrobes along the landing, ideal for all your storage needs,

Black and white tiles extend underfoot in the large bathroom, where twin wash basins are set beneath a mirror, and a large bath contains an overhead shower. There is also a separate WC.

Turning left out of the bathroom, arrive at a bedroom with built-in wardrobes. Dressed in earthy tones with subtle lighting, overlooking countryside, this room is peaceful and quiet.

Storage heaven
Along the landing, further storage is built-in to the walls on the right, as light flows in through a window on the left.

On the right, Cath Kidston wallpaper adds a splash of colour to the third double bedroom, which also contains fitted wardrobes.

Finally, seek sanctuary in the master bedroom, located at the end of the landing and drawing in daylight from windows to both sides. Witness sunrise and sunset over the fields and garden, wake up to the clip-clop of horses passing by, and witness the twinkling stars at night in the crystal-clear skies, free from light pollution. Supremely spacious, there is ample room for an emperor-sized bed.

An English country garden
A focal point of Cockers Hey is its glorious cottage garden, connected by a broad and beautiful patio to the home. Step up from the stone patio to discover a large, lush lawn, perfectly flat and ideal for a game of badminton or cricket. Surrounding the garden, deep borders brimming with mature plants and shrubs provide a harmony of year-round colour and texture for a quintessentially English country garden.

East-facing, soak up the sunshine throughout the day. Gather fruit from the ancient apple tree, take the children pond dipping for frog spawn in the spring and host garden parties throughout the summer. There is a handy potting shed for gardening tools behind the garage.

Linking to the home, the garage offers bonus rooms, including an office with gym equipment, shower room and WC alongside a staircase up to an attic room and large loft – the ultimate den for children to camp out and play computer games.

OWNER QUOTE: “It’s nice to feel that separation when going to work.”

Between the house and garage there is also a boiler room providing excellent storage for bikes and sports equipment.
