This traditional Grade II listed cottage has period features throughout and makes an excellent family or group getaway, with a separate coach house boasting its own living quarters for extra privacy.
Facing Hawkchurch’s village war memorial, and with direct access to the 625-mile long Monarch’s Way footpath, this 500-year-old property is surrounded by peace and tranquility. Just 7 miles from the coastal town of Lyme Regis - famed for its fossil hunting and fun family days out - it’s ideally located for a family escape to enjoy both Devon and Dorset’s coast and country.
Enter the cottage through a stable door, leaving muddy boots and wiping mucky paws in the porch before stepping into the double aspect kitchen/dining room. Here you will find an impressive Aga, available for use in cooler months (October to April), as well as an additional oven and a dishwasher. Dine around the family-sized table beside the window seat, underneath the exposed beams. A wooden arch leads into the double aspect lounge with parquet floor, inglenook fireplace with open fire, original bread oven, and window seat where you can relax and enjoy the array of mod cons that will help you feel at home. Three steps lead into the study which has reduced height in the eaves, and there is also a bathroom on the ground floor with a shower over the bath and a WC. A rear hall has space for coats and boots and also has reduced height in the eaves. On the first floor you will find three bedrooms, all beamed with reduced height and made up of one double with an en-suite WC, plus two twins. The property also boasts a single-storey detached stone cottage situated to the rear of the parking area. Here there is a cosy lounge/dining room with a vaulted beamed ceiling, log burner, TV and fridge, as well as a double bedroom with iPod dock and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. This is also where you will find the utility room with drier.
A side gate leads to a split-level front garden with flowers and shrubs, while the rear garden has a large lawn area as well as a gravelled area and patio. There is ample off-road parking.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
