situated on Bircher Common this pretty stone cottage has two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, garage and parking. Far reaching views add to this wonderful property and internal viewing is highly recommended.


The Beehive has been in the same family for decades and this is the first time it has been put on the market. This wonderful two bedroom stone and half timbered property, has been in the past the local shop for the common selling the basics, such as tobacco , vinegar, flour and other dry goods. These items were bought up from the nearby hamlet of Yarpole. The owner of the Beehive would take the residents of the common down to the local shop in Yarpole by pony and trap. The Beehive could be extended STPP to create a peaceful family home.
