A beautifully refurbished 5 bedroom cottage set in a captivating plot of 3.77 acres in the idyllic location of Hollies Common.
SituationSpring Cottage is situated within the locality of Hollies Common, an idyllic collection of a handful of rural properties on the edge of the village of Gnosall. The village of Gnosall has a thriving community and offers many local amenities to include a village hall, shops, restaurants, 4 public houses, hairdresser, doctor's surgery, and a dental practice. Gnosall lies to the south of the A518 and a main attraction is the Shropshire Union Canal, a conservation area, where pleasant walks can be enjoyed along the canal towpath. The church of St Lawrence also serves the community offering a place of worship and offering a diary of events to enjoy. There are regular bus services to Newport and Telford. Gnosall sits almost equidistant between Stafford and Newport, both offering a wider range of amenities including large supermarkets, a plethora of leisure and hospitality facilities as well as a wider range of retail amenities.
Spring Cottage is well placed for the commuter with both Junction 12 and 13 of the M6 within commutable distance, providing efficient access to Manchester and Birmingham via road. Main line rail services run from Stafford station to London Euston in under an hour and a half, whilst there are also frequent services to Manchester and Birmingham. Birmingham and East Midlands airport are also within easy reach.
There is an excellent range of schooling within the area including Yarlet School, St Dominic's Priory in Stone, Stafford Grammar School and Wrekin College in Wellington. Gnosall St Lawrence School is situated within the village.
