General information Oak Cottage is situated in beautiful unspoilt countryside within the Stour Valley area of exceptional landscape importance. It lies fronting the back road which runs from Sudbury down the valley, through the village of Great Henny towards Bures in the south. The property has attractive level grounds of 0.4 acre with selection of mature trees including Quince and Eucalyptus.

A door leads on into the large studio/office which has double doors to the large garage/workshop and a door to the shower/wet room. This area could easily be converted and upgraded to make a wonderful modern open-plan kitchen/dining room creating great scope to increase the size of the original reception rooms at the front of the property.
