This pair of period cottages for sale sit in a national park and are on the market for the first time in a century. 

Bossington Green Cottages, on the edge of Bossington, were built in the early 1900s on land that was previously in the Holnicote Estate. 

The cottages sit in Exmoor National Park and were built by the current vendors’ family, now being for sale for the first time.

The properties have distinctive facades, with tall chimneys and traditional black framed windows. 

Bossington is a National Trust village, and the cottages are some of the only properties in the village that aren’t owned by the National Trust. 

Both cottages are in need of refurbishment, and have period features throughout, such as inglenook fireplaces in both sitting rooms.
