Description - Dingle Cottage, 3 Woodbine Terrace is a charming property. Discreetly tucked away, the last of three terraced cottages it has an east west aspect. The essence of what one might expect in a traditional Cotswold cottage, it exudes character from the moment you approach it. The front Porch is a good size, an ideal spot for perching on a bench to remove muddy boots. The porch opens into a generous sized dual aspect sitting room, with a beamed ceiling and a lovely fireplace with wood burning stove inset - perfect for winter evenings. Leading from the sitting room is a well appointed Kitchen with access to the rear courtyard, well positioned for the evening sun. A cast iron spiral staircase leads to an 'L' shaped landing and two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes plus a well appointed bathroom. A fixed 'paddle' ladder accesses the full length attic under the sloping eaves. It has two velux windows letting in good levels of natural light, making an ideal home office. The cottage has a separate garden approximately 25 yards along the lane, with a raised terrace, stone outbuilding and level area of lawn, measuring 75ft x 40ft.
Location - Box is an unspoilt little village in the lea of Minchinhampton, on the upper slopes of a south facing valley. It is quiet and peaceful and the narrow lanes that thread their way through, attract minimal passing traffic. Box is nonetheless a very pro-active community with an excellent monthly magazine, Box News and a strong sense of community. Within 2 hours of London by car or 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud Station, Box is also within commuting distance of Cheltenham and Bristol. Nearby Minchinhampton can supply most necessities, while Nailsworth in the valley below, has an outstanding range of independent retailers as well as a national supermarket and a renown delicatessen with fresh fish counter. There are lovely walks from the village in all directions including within its community owned woodland and Minchinhampton Common, part of over 650 acres, free for anyone to enjoy. For golfers there are three local courses nearby and the hills and valleys a challenge for cyclists. High Goal Polo is played locally in the summer months and there are many excellent places to eat out.
