THIS period cottage for sale has “wonderful” gardens and includes a stretch of the Grand Western Canal. 

Greenham Cottage, near Wellington, sits in four acres of grounds and includes a separate studio, as well as a section of the canal.

The canal dates back to the 1700s, and was created as a means to connect the Bristol Channel with the English Channel, but was never completed.

The main cottage is entered via a covered porch into the hall, with under stairs cupboards and access to the kitchen and breakfast room.
