Steeped in character and boasting period features, Star Cottage is a Grade II listed property. Originally known to be a ‘hall house’, it was built during the reign of Henry VIII and is located in the heart of the charming historical town of Eye, with eateries and cafes within walking distance. Boasting exposed timber beams and a wood burner, there is even a ‘witch’s mark’ on the fireplace mantle, originally made to protect the cottage from evil forces entering. The property has been lovingly restored and furnished to offer a wonderful holiday, in keeping and complimentary of its era. The living room boasts full timber frame beams and a wood burner to enjoy on a chilly evening, after a day of exploring. The spacious dining room is a great place to host meals or celebrations, whilst a lovely garden room offers the perfect place to simply sit and relax.
Spoilt for choice, there are three bedrooms, the master with an en-suite toilet and a timber framed single bedroom with a privacy curtain, leading to a family bedroom boasting both a double and a single bed. Completing the character of the property, there are some low beam doorways and sloping floors.
