Frog Cottage on Lower Street is on the market for the first time in 45 years having been a much loved second home. It is a charming Grade II listed terraced granite property with a small courtyard garden at the rear. The accommodation comprises an entrance lobby, sitting room with a granite fireplace and woodburner and a kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there is a cloakroom, bathroom and two bedrooms. This sweet cottage would make an ideal starter home, second home or holiday rental. Fowlers will be pleased to show you this character home.

There is a Parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel, a primary school, pre school and Montessori school. The town is surrounded by countryside, riverside and moorland walks and there are good sports facilities with a football and cricket pitch, a sports pavilion, bowling club, tennis club, a skate park, children's play park and an open air swimming pool in the summertime.
