This former farm workers' cottage is thought to be more than 300 years old - and now it could be yours.

The house, which is on The Street in Wrecclesham, is Grade II listed and is believed to date back to the 17th century.

It is older than St Peter’s Church, which was built in the 1800s after complaints that the village was “evil” due to a high level of alcohol consumption throughout, with one visitor commenting that the whole village would be drunk on a Monday afternoon.

It is likely that the labourers who lived in the cottage in its early years were hops farmers, as this was the village’s primary harvest until at least the late 1800s.

There are character features nodding to its history throughout, such as an inglenook fireplace, exposed brickwork and beams.
