Hutt Dairy was formerly a dairy on the Weld Estate. It was sympathetically converted in the late 1980’s and now comprises 4 dwellings around a central yard in an idyllic village setting.

Whey Cottage, listed Grade II, provides flexible, comfortable and quality accommodation which has been tastefully decorated by the current owners to create a well-appointed interior which mixes a fine blend of period features with modern fitments.

A particular feature of the house is the recently fitted modern kitchen with vaulted ceiling and double doors leading out to the garden. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units with integrated appliances including; dish washer, hob with extractor hood over, double electric oven and fridge/freezer.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room providing further storage, space and plumbing for white goods and access to the garden.

The remaining accommodation comprises; entrance hall, sitting room with a mezzanine floor which is currently used as a secondary study and lends itself to a further bedroom if required. A study, WC, modern shower room and three good size bedrooms with the principle bedroom benefiting from a modern en-suite shower room with Portuguese limestone tiles throughout.

From the parking area above the cottage, steps lead down to the side hall door and then onto the upper terrace and garden with a delightful easterly view over the lawn, flower borders and hedging to countryside beyond.

Sleeper steps with well stocked borders to either side, lead down to the lower garden of lawn and with colourful borders, some trees and the sun terrace adjacent to the sitting room – all providing an air of tranquillity.

Within the courtyard is the adjacent garage with up and over door and housing the oil fired boiler and oil tank. In addition there is a driveway providing further off road parking.
