The village of Wilmington is conveniently located on the A35 between the towns of Axminster and Honiton. Both towns offer a wide range of shopping facilities, doctor's surgeries, hospitals, primary and state schooling along with excellent railway links with trains on the London Waterloo line.

The Cathedral and University City of Exeter is easily reached by car via the A30 dual carriageway, which in turn leads to Junction 30 of the M5. The city offers the majority of leading department stores expected of a large city, wide range of private and state education and a sixth Form College. A short distance to the east of the City is Exeter International Airport.

A real feature of this property is its incredible outside space. The current owner has created, over many years something really quite special!

To the rear of the cottage is a sheltered south facing courtyard with stone walls, pergola, deep flower borders and stone workshop, with power and light. A concrete path then leads up the garden passing raised beds with low stone walls, a richly planted bulb bank, sheltered sitting areas and lawns.

The garden has been carefully planned and planted with specimen trees, shrubs and herbaceous borders. At the top of the garden is a further private area with delightful views, flower borders, lawns, pond, useful garden and storage buildings and vehicular access. This area of garden is level and bordered by brick and stone walls.


The front door into 2 Schoolhouse Cottages is to the road side but a private shared drive leads to the off road parking and rear access.
