An early 17th century converted farmhouse nestled in the oldest part of Bathford village. Overlooking St Swithun's church, this extended semi with panoramic views towards Bath is steeped in history with the earliest record dating back to 1604. The farmhouse was converted in 1967 into two dwellings, Milkwood Cottage and Manor Farm Cottage.

Milkwood Cottage has since been significantly extended sometime in the 1970's with a double storey rear extension allowing for a kitchen dining room, sitting room and cloakroom to the ground floor. Three double bedrooms to the first floor include a full width main bedroom to the front with arched casement windows and a generous built in storage cupboard. The second bedroom to the rear takes in the view and bedroom three is a smaller double.

Externally, the west facing rear garden leads down to a double garage with vehicle access from the shared access lane to the side of the property. The elevation of the plot takes in St Swithun's church and sweeping panoramic views towards Bath.

Bathford is a thriving village with a real sense of community spirit located approximately 3 miles to the east of Bath. Local amenities including a village shop, an outstanding primary school, Avonvale Rugby Club and Bathford Cricket Club. Browns Folly, locally known as 'the Pepper Pot', is literally on the doorstep and is perfect for walking the dog or taking the kids out for an adventure. A regular bus service from Bathford takes you to and from Bath city centre and the village is well placed for access to the M4.
