This charming, detached period cottage occupies a place on a tiny 'green lane' with no passing traffic in the small, but much sought after hamlet of Wadeford, midway between Chard and Combe St Nicholas. The property is surrounded by miles of glorious unspoilt countryside and benefits from splendid open views.

Like many period properties the cottage, named Colway, is robustly built and has been altered over the years and now offers comfortable accommodation with a wealth of character. Period features include a lovely herringbone brick internal wall, beamed ceilings and a fine inglenook fireplace with a bread oven.

On the ground floor, there are three cosy and inviting reception rooms, two of which are double aspect. The kitchen has a traditional look with well-fitted wooden units and benefits from a walk-in pantry.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. There is ample scope to enlarge the accommodation by incorporating the attached linhay, currently used for storage, subject to any necessary consents.

Outside, the pretty garden complements the cottage perfectly, established over many years and is abundantly planted with a wide variety of ornamental shrubs, mature trees and well stocked herbaceous borders. There are pleasant areas of lawn, and a small stream runs along the western boundary.

There is parking space in the generous single garage.
