NO ONWARD CHAINA charming, spacious, five bedroomed cottage sits on the edge of the pretty Rutland village of Barrowden with views across the Welland valley. Cacklebank was originally a cattle barn, dating back to the 1830s. It had been extended and converted into three cottages in 1870s and over a hundred years later, they were made into one dwelling. The current owners redesigned the layout which now provides a superb, spacious, south facing living room that manages to retain all its character along with a sunny dining room that opens onto the garden, and second sitting room at the opposite end. Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a roll-top bath and there are four further double bedrooms and a hobby room / studio.The south facing garden is a peaceful haven of tranquility. Enclosed and private from mixed hedging both front and back, it is a good size but manageable.
