This fantastic, detached 17th century farmhouse is set in a beautiful rural setting in Dorset, yet only a short drive to the coast, making it a perfect holiday retreat for all the family.
A private drive leads you to the house which is surrounded by large lawns on two sides, offering plenty of room for children to play and let off steam. This delightful farmhouse has been sympathetically renovated whilst keeping much of its original charm and character including flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces. Situated on the border of Dorset and Devon, it is ideally situated just a few miles from the picturesque seaside town of Charmouth. You will have easy access to Jurassic Coast and can enjoy 250 miles or more of coastal and rural walks. The charming historic town of Lyme Regis is nearby, with its famous Cobb harbour, bright boats, narrow streets, selection of shops, inns, restaurants, cafes, and a glorious sandy beach which is perfect for children and adults alike. There are many other local attractions including Pecorama, Seaton Tramway, Crealy, Bicton Park, The Donkey Sanctuary, Burrows Farm Gardens, River Cottage HQ and many National Trust properties.
Heading inside this picturesque property, you will find the charming and welcoming lounge which is accessed via the flagstone hallway via two steps up and has a cosy wood burner, as well as a TV with DVD and a selection of books to browse, making a perfect area to relax with family and friends. From the hallway, two steps lead down to the charming traditional dining room, with a full-size dining table and large inglenook fireplace with large wood burner. The elegantly designed kitchen is well-equipped with integrated oven and hob, double wall mounted electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a useful breakfast bar. Exploring further, you will also find a useful utility room with a sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and door leading outside to the garden and parking area. Also on the ground floor is a spacious twin bedroom with a seating area set within the original inglenook fireplace. A separate shower room with WC can be found just off the utility room and completes the ground floor. Going upstairs to the first floor you will find three further spacious bedrooms which have lovely views over the garden. Firstly, there is a Master double with a super-king-size bed complete with an en-suite shower room and WC, a pretty double room with a king-size bed and a further twin room. Also on the first floor is the bathroom which has a bath and WC. Please note that due to the property’s age several rooms are accessed via steps.
Stepping outside, you will find yourself in the large enclosed garden with extensive lawn and a patio with garden furniture, BBQ and climbing frame ideal for small children. Ample off-road parking is available.
