A stunning period cottage has come on the market in Formby – and despite its historic features, it has a modern twist.

Originally two houses, this thatched-roof cottage on Gores Lane is available to rent with Karen Park Sales and Lettings in Formby.

Timber-framed, with a roughcast exterior, this detached three-bedroomed property is certainly eye-catching.

It is on the market for £1,400 a month, and is available for a long term let.
