This was previously the home of artist Antony Dracup and the cottage bears his name. Quite rightly too for beneath that cutesy frontage lurks a secret, magical world created by its creative former owner.

Most people who fancied a bit of extra living space would declutter, build an extension or move. Not Mr Dracup. He wielded a chisel and started carving into the sandstone on which his house was built. The end result was this amazing cellar. Lord knows how long it must have taken him or the mess that must have been made whilst work was in progress. I think that you might agree that all that effort was entirely worth it. This is a dream living space for humans. I reckon a hobbit or two might be putting in offers too.
