Wellfield Parva is a picture postcard detached cottage believed to date back some 200 years with later additions boasting flexible living accommodation and a wealth of period character. The construction is flint stone with brick quoins under a tiled roof. Features include an inglenook fireplace, beams, flagstone flooring, window seating and an Aga. There are gorgeous countryside views from every window and a modern extension greatly increases the overall size but matched to the original house in a sympathetic fashion. Downstairs there is an entrance hall/snug, a lobby with a shower room, a kitchen leading to a dining room, a lounge, study and further reception room/bedroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a large play room, alternatively ideal as the principal bedroom with potential for an ensuite shower room. There is a large, fully boarded loft.


The property has a gravelled drive with turning area to the side. The gardens lie mainly to the south and east with sloping lawns, a pond, vegetable patches, greenhouse, sheds and mature beds enclosed by tree and hedge borders. The owners also have a natural/untended area to encourage wildlife. At the top on the far east side is an additional drive giving access to a detached cedar wood double garage with power and lighting and an adjacent oil tank.


The property is peacefully situated a mile and a half away from the desirable and picturesque village of Hawkchurch in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village boasts a thriving and proactive local community with a well regarded primary school and a well utilised and modern village hall which hosts a variety of clubs and activities. There is a local pub that also provides guest rooms and from the village there is a regular bus service into the market town of Axminster (five miles). Axminster has good rail links to London and westwards to Exeter or further into Devon or onwards to Cornwall. This historic town is popular for its River Cottage Canteen and store. To the south, there is access to the stunning Jurassic Coast at the pretty harbour town of Lyme Regis (7 miles away) which has featured in many films over the years. Here you will find a surprising array of convenience and bespoke shopping, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants and historic hotels. The town has a good provision of day to day amenities including banks, a health centre, churches, a library, a museum, a cinema and a charming independent theatre. The area is extremely well provided for by excellent private and state schools at both primary and secondary levels including the famous Colyton Grammar and Woodroffe School. Lyme has a fantastic family beach with golden sands, shallow waters and charming rock pools at low tide. This pretty stretch of coast is designated as a World Heritage Site and has excellent opportunities for a number of pursuits, from a spot of mackerel fishing to a fossil hunt or ride out into the countryside. The larger centres of Exeter or Taunton are also accessible by road.
