Occupying a delightful position overlooking the Umborne Valley, in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Jurassic Coast is within 4 miles whilst the coastal resorts of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth are both about 10 miles.

Colyton Grammar School (3 miles) has a fine reputation and the property is within their catchment area. The towns of Axminster (4 miles) and Honiton (4 miles) have a wide range of amenities and facilities including stations on the London Waterloo line. The university and cathedral city of Exeter and the county town of Taunton are also within easy reach. The property is 2 miles from the A35, which links to the A30 at Honiton, which then connects to the A303 and the M3.


Converted in the late 80's this attached cottage was originally designed as a holiday cottage enjoying wonderful views across the Umborne Valley and set in the grounds of a Grade II listed farmhouse and therefore within the curtilage. In 2017 consent was granted to allow unrestricted residential occupation.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, open plan kitchen/living with views across the valley and stairs rising to the first floor. The kitchen has a range of units with space for a fridge, dishwasher, an electric hob and oven.

Attached to the rear of The Barn is a workshop area creating an opportunity to incorporate into The Barn, subject to consents. Please note the current door to the rear will need to be closed within 6 months of completion and alternative access will need to be installed by the new owners, consents likely to be required.

There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.


There is a large area of parking for several cars. Steps rise up to the garden which is enclosed by post and rail fencing and enjoys stunning views across the valley with a patio beside the barn.


Mains water (sub metered) and electric. Shared private drainage with a new treatment plant installed in early 2020.
