An 18th-century thatched stone cottage set in a hugely picturesque hamlet, this property overlooks a 12th-century church and provides an idyllic base for rest and relaxation.
This charming three-bedroom stone cottage in the ancient hamlet of Whitcombe is a delightful place to retreat to for a family holiday. This cosy and characterful cottage retains many original features and overlooks an attractive 12th-century church. Its proximity to the local pub and shop (1.5 miles) and coast (6 miles) makes this an ideal spot for families or groups of friends looking for a relaxing break.
Enter the cottage through a thatched porch to the welcoming lounge; snuggle up in front of the fire among peaceful decor and wood beams. Head round to the spacious kitchen diner, which has everything you need to cook up a storm and enjoy it around the table looking out through the window to the garden. Next to the kitchen, a pretty bathroom with peaceful blue tones has a shower over the bath and is a perfect place to relax. Upstairs, watch your head on the beams on the landing and head through to a warm double bedroom with wood features throughout. Next door is a bright and airy shower room that’s ideal for a rinse off. Across the landing, a single room, while a double bedroom at the end has views of the other quaint cottages on the street. Outside, a large enclosed garden is the perfect place to sizzle up a BBQ and enjoy the lawn and fruit trees. There’s also parking for two cars through a gate.
