Auction Appraiser Chris Milne said: “Although this property is in need of complete refurbishment and repair throughout, our bidders could see the potential.

“We considered that, once enhanced, the cottage would be ideal for owner-occupation or investment.”

The cottage and adjoining clock tower are located in a rural location within easy reach of Wadhurst and Rotherfield as well as Royal Tunbridge Wells with its various retailers, schools and railway station.
