Lock Cottage sits by the canal, the original barrel building once being the main toll cottage for the Stratford canal system.

Built in 1810, this unusual property in Preston Bagot, Warwickshire, has a dining room which retains the original barrel-shaped ceiling, and which itself continues into the main bedroom, and overlooks the canal.

The master bedroom has a dressing room and en-suite, as does the second bedroom.

Opposite this is the kitchen/breakfast room while the living room has four full height arched windows and a solid marble open fireplace.

A spiral staircase leads to the private roof garden. At the end of the cottage there is a garden room and terrace. A long driveway has ample parking space, plus there is a greenhouse and back garden with a koi carp pond.
