Directions From St. James' church in Louth proceed south along Upgate, carry on through the traffic lights and proceed out of town to the bypass roundabout. Carry straight on along the A16 and look for the next right turning towards Haugham and Tetford. Take this turning and after a short distance the property will be found on the right side.

The Property This handsome detached country cottage is believed to date back to Victorian times and has attractive mellow brick-faced principal walls beneath a pitched and hipped timber roof structure covered in natural slate. The original windows have been replaced with uPVC -framed, double-glazed units and heating is provided by electric wall-hung panel heaters.

Generally, the property requires a scheme of renovation and modernisation but affords considerable potential due to the exceptional Wolds setting and stunning open views.
