The whole area is well known for its outstanding natural beauty with Exmoor National Park just 3.5 miles to the north and the beaches of the beautiful North Devon coast are only a 40 minute drive away.

Beyond the sitting room is the spacious kitchen/ dining room with a range of wooden units incorporating a fitted oven with extractor fan over. Leading off the kitchen is a very useful pantry area, rear entrance hallway with door to the garden, and a utility room. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study with exterior doors to the garden and rear yard area, as well as a downstairs cloakroom.

The cottage gardens are delightful, beautifully secluded and well established with a pretty lawn, vegetable garden, rose covered arbour, lily pond, original stone potting shed and numerous mature trees and shrubs. At the bottom of the garden, a gate leads through to the private parking area with its own access from the lane.
