EPC Rating - F

Set within some 4.8 acres of gardens, grounds and pasture, this wonderful detached 2 bedroomed cottage (potential for 3rd bedroom) is approached by a country track and is set within its own mini sheltered valley. The cottage has been used historically as a private home, personal holiday home and more recently a very successful holiday let and is ideal for those seeking seclusion but without isolation.

This cottage certainly has the "Wow" factor as far as its setting goes. It offers an exceptionally private location but without isolation (The B3224 being at the head of the track and within a short distance from the property). Ideal for those that want seclusion but still want access north to Minehead, South to Dulverton or those requiring access to Taunton (to the East) with its wider facilities, main line railway service and motorway connections.

Exmoor National Park
For those keen on country pursuits then whilst Exmoor is one of the smallest National Parks in the UK (but arguably the prettiest), it still offers some 264 square miles of remarkable countryside from its high heather clad moorland, rolling farming countryside, deep wooded river valleys and some of the highest marine cliffs in England along its northern coastline.

The Property
This stunning detached cottage features 2 double bedrooms but has the potential for conversion to add in a third bedroom with en-suite if required (see agent's notes). The cottage has been carefully maintained and modernised and is ideal for those seeking a permanent home or holiday home.

Entrance Porch with timber seating at either side, Entrance Lobby, Sitting Room with beamed ceiling, fireplace with inset wood burner, pair of windows to front with shutters, storage cupboard. Open Plan Kitchen/Diner with handmade kitchen units (wall and base units), tiled worktop's, Belfast sink, plumbing for washing machine, space for fridge, large Inglenook fireplace with double bread oven and inset oil fired Aga, window to rear elevation and larger window to front with shutters. Turned staircase to First Floor and Landing Area. Bathroom/Shower Room with bath, shower fitment and screen, wash hand basin, WC, airing cupboard with shelving and hot water tank. Bedroom 2 with window to front. Bedroom 1, double aspect with windows to front and side including views over farmland and adjoining pond.

The cottage is approached over an unmade track which leads down to a five bar wooden gate opening into a Gravelled Driveway and Turning Area for multiple vehicles. Car Port/store at side. Stone Outbuilding currently used as a utility area/store room.
Steps at side to front garden and front door and steps at side to terraced garden and open fronted Timber Gazebo. There is also a detached "Caractacus Potts" style outside Gardeners WC, oil tank and the central heating boiler is located at the rear of the cottage.

The main gardens immediately adjoining the front of the cottage are level and front onto a small steam that runs through the property, these gardens are laid to both lawn and grassed areas with herbaceous border and mature shrubs and trees with an abundance of seasonal bulbs and are an undoubted feature of the property and its setting. Two footbridges lead over to the other side of the stream where the land rises on the southern side of the property but offers fine views back over the cottage and the gardens and grounds.

To the rear of the property is a paddock, this has access to the gardens and also vehicular access at the side leading to the drive/track that leads to the cottage (in all the property stands within some 4.8 acres).
