A Grade II listed character cottage situated in a picturesque village near the Norfolk-Suffolk border will go under the hammer at auction next week.

Tudor Cottage in Botesdale near Diss is listed for sale at a guide price of just £180,000-£200,000, although with bidding open who knows what it might fetch on the day.

A spokesperson for Auction House East Anglia, selling the property, says it has been tenanted for a number of years but is now vacant and in need of some redecoration and minor improvement.

The property retains a lot of its original charm, with exposed timbers, character features and an inner courtyard garden and is believed to have once formed part of a much bigger property, possibly even a shop.

Historic England describes the original building, which dates back to the 16th century and included Tudor House, as "unusual", with its original plan and function noted as "obscure."

Today, there are two reception rooms, a kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor, with three bedrooms and a cloakroom on the floor above.
