The Jacobean charms of Grade II listed Rose Cottage, 300 yards from the beach at Middleton-on-Sea, have been saved thanks to a restoration overseen by English Heritage.

A deep inglenook fireplace houses a wood-burning stove in the sitting room, exposed beams feature in both bedrooms and the garage doubles as a home office/utility. Pretty gardens surround.
