A delightful detached character home within easy reach of Lyme Regis town, seafront and Cobb. Far-reaching sea, town and country views. Extended and improved under the current ownership. EPC Band E.


Candlemas Cottage is a delightful detached former coach house which enjoys an elevated position within walking distance of Lyme Regis town, sea front and historic Cobb. Owing to this enviable position, stunning sea, town and country views can be enjoyed, particularly from the charming tiered gardens. The house itself bears all the hallmarks of an historic building with fabulous character features including an impressive fireplace with wood burner and a window seat in the sitting room and exposed beams and wall timbers in several rooms throughout the property. Under the current ownership the property has been subject to a programme of improvements and extension, creating a spacious period home with every modern convenience catered for, all presented to a high standard in a fresh, neutral scheme of decoration.


It is clear upon arrival that this is a property with a personality of its very own; a sense which is only enhanced by exploring inside. The charming sitting room is full of exciting character features, providing an atmosphere of comfort and cottage appeal without compromising on the wealth of natural light. With its shaker-style fitted units, range cooker and wooden floor, the kitchen/dining room complements the age of the property perfectly whilst providing ample amenities for the busy modern cook. Also on the ground floor is the elegant and expansive principal bedroom suite, featuring a vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room, and the family bathroom which services the two generous bedrooms upstairs, both of which feature exposed roof timbers.


The gardens at Candlemas Cottage are a joy. Arranged into a series of easily maintained, attractive terraces, the numerous sun terraces, decks and pergola, interspersed with established, well stocked borders, are designed to offer a wonderful outdoor lifestyle which takes full advantage of the privacy of the plot as well as the stunning, far reaching views which take in the sea, the town and the surrounding countryside. To the front is an off road parking area which we understand is owned by Dorset Country Council but has been used by the owners of Candlemas Cottage since 2004.


We understand that there is a covenant on the property against business use, but solicitor's advice suggests that long-term letting should be permitted.


The property is set within walking distance of the centre of Lyme Regis with its iconic Cobb wall and fishing heritage. Lyme is part of the stunning Jurassic Coast with a thriving town centre offering convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurant and hotels. There are a variety of excellent beaches to cater for all tastes throughout the region whilst, on your doorstep, Lyme's beach and Cobb are a short stroll away for a spot of sailing, bathing, fishing or rock pooling. The area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent walking and water sport opportunities. The house is a convenient 6 miles away from the mainline station at Axminster with services to London Waterloo, making the area an ideal weekend or holiday retreat, with excellent road and rail access further westwards into Devon and Cornwall.
