Its fine position in enhanced by its location at the end of a private driveway that serves Hollins Close Cottage itself and one other neighbouring property.
Originally believed to date back over 150 years when it was just a "two up, two down" farmworkers cottage the property was extended in the 1990's increasing the accommodation to create an excellent detached country home.
