The house’s name is taken from local folklore as legend has it that in 1637, Charles I owed his tailor a great deal of money.

Being unable to pay, he seeded land from the Duchy of Lancaster to settle his account and the plot of land became known as The Duchy Rag.

Entering the home you will find the farmhouse kitchen including a traditional range as well as a useful induction hob and modern Neff oven.

Hand-built cabinetry offers storage space and hides the integrated dishwasher while the kitchen is spacious enough to accommodate a dining table for ten, opening out into a conservatory.
