THE WIRING needs attention, a new kitchen would be a good idea, and outside, the garden plants are fighting for space with an overgrown paddock and orchard. But Mayfield, a four-bedroom cottage near Woodbridge, Suffolk, could well repay any love and attention spent on it. Originally three cottages, with the 1960s/70s additions of a garden store and workshop, it has a large drawing room and dining room with beams and part-panelled walls, but needs a bathroom or two upstairs. For sale at pounds 185,000 from Clarke & Simpson (01728 724200).
