Property: Three To View; Here For The Beer

IT'S ONLY about a 100ft walk to The Star from this two-bedroom cottage in Mill Lane, Romsey, Hampshire, with another half a dozen pubs not much further on in the town centre. The front door of the brick-built terraced cottage leads directly into the kitchen which has modern limed oak units, built-in oven and hob and a Chinese slate floor. There's an 11ft sitting room with exposed brick wall, beams, an open fireplace and staircase leading to the first floor. Outside there is a landscaped garden with an octagonal decking area and pergola. Offers are invited from around pounds 115,000. For details call Nicholas Zorab (01794 511911).

IT'S A brisk 10 minute walk from Toad House to the White Swan in North Walsham, 15 miles from Norwich: time to build up a real thirst for East Anglia's famed ales. The four-reception, four-bedroom detached house with roses around the windows was formerly two cottages, but was recently converted and renovated. It has a 13ft farmhouse-style kitchen, with built-in oven and hob and a door leading to a sun room, a conservatory and a large breakfast room. There is a private rear garden with pond and fruit trees, a terrace and garden shed. Offers are invited from around pounds 129,950. For details contact Francis Hornor Brown & Co (01603 767606).

THIS 17th-century cottage, tucked away down a pedestrian-only lane in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire, three miles from Royston, is hidden from the road and has no garage or parking space. But as it's only a minute's walk from The Black Horse at one end of the lane and The Dolphin at the other, who needs a car? In a village of lovely old cottages, number six Little Lane maintains the status quo. Grade II listed, it has a 22ft drawing room with beams and brick inglenook fireplace, a study with an internal stained-glass window and three bedrooms, all with sloping ceilings. Close to Meldreth railway station, the journey to King's Cross is about an hour. The guide price is pounds 139,950, details from Bruce Munro (01799 522628) or Tuckers (01223 845240).
