Goatley House is a detached house thought to date back to the late 17th Century and which has been extended over the years to give the house its different styles and character. Originally a cottage with hay loft and dairy, the later addition of a Georgian façade brings a different character with rooms with lofty ceilings.. The current owners have carried out extensive improvements including the addition of a superb Prime Oak timber framed and glazed garden room which provides a superb extension to the open plan kitchen/dining room. There is an Aga in the kitchen area together with an excellent range of cupboards, There are exposed beams and limestone flooring throughout the whole of the kitchen dining and garden room with each space providing a seamless flow to the next.

The rooms within the Georgian part of the house include a formal sitting room and study with fireplace (not working) and sash windows. There is a further family room in the older part of the house with a beamed celing, fireplace and flagstone floor.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor with the main bedroom having a stylish en-suite with twin sinks and roll top bath. A paddle staircase leads to a wardrobe/dressing area. The 2nd floor has two further interconnecting bedrooms which together make an excellent children's bedroom with playroom.
