Oriel Cottage is a Grade II* listed house which dates from the 15th Century. It has many notable architectural features which have been little altered and these are mainly visible and include exposed timbers, timber framing with brick in filling, jettied timber framing, a 17th Century rectangular oriel window and a first floor ‘hall’ which is a magnificent room which has a trussed roof. Oriel Cottage is a combination of two properties and it is unusual to find such a charming property within such close proximity of the Market Place.

The principal bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling in addition to a shower cubicle with Mira shower and a wash hand basin in vanity unit with tiled surround and there are also double doors to a roof terrace.
