September Cottage at Wenhaston

September Cottage is a traditional brick and flint cottage believed to date back to the late 1700s. It is set in the heart of the village opposite St Peter’s church, famous for its Doom painting. The cottage has been thoroughly restored, retaining its charm and character with many original features yet with a contemporary touch and the benefits of modern living.

There are good pubs an easy walk away and many footpaths around the village! One well-behaved dog is welcome here!
