A gorgeous 3 bedroom Cottage in the heart of Loddiswell. In need of modernisation, the property boasts many original features and offers the potential to become a lovely family/holiday home in a sought after location.
Loddiswell is a lovely village with a real community feel. It has a village shop and post office, church, pub that serves food and a very popular primary school.
