● Delightful Three Bedroom Character Cottage
● Garden with Utility Shed and Garage / Store
● Three Excellent Paddocks
● Area of Young Deciduous Woodland
● Double Field Shelter
● Approx. 6 Acres In All

A delightful three bedroom character cottage set in approx. 6 acres with three excellent paddocks plus an area of young deciduous woodland in a lovely rural location with wonderful views to Exmoor.

The cottage is believed to be more than 300 years old and was a former groom’s cottage and holiday let to Bradleigh Down Farm which was recently split into three separate dwellings. The property has been sympathetically refurbished by the present owners and it retains a huge amount of charm and character but with the convenience of three ensuite bathrooms, a modern kitchen and new oil-fired central heating system.
The present owners run the property as a general smallholding keeping ponies, alpacas and goats, and in the agents’ opinion, it offers a wonderful rural lifestyle. It might also potentially suit someone looking to gain an income through bed and breakfast or Airbnb.
The surrounding countryside has a number of footpaths and quiet country lanes leading to two bridleways within a short hacking distance.
