The village lies within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 4 miles North West of Axminster and 7 miles from Chard. The market town of Axminster provides a good range of day to day amenities including shops, schools and cafes together with a mainline railway station on the London Waterloo line. The heritage coast with resorts such as Lyme Regis and Seaton is some 6 miles distance from Axminster and the regional centre of Exeter being 25 miles to the West with connections to the M5 motorway and regional airport.

The property sits side on to the lane. One side has a car port with parking for one car. There is a village car park up the road for guests . At the other side of the property steps lead up to a patio area with access to the porch and an attached outbuilding with plenty of storage space and the water system. Steps lead up from the patio area to a layered lawn. From here you have beautiful views of the countryside beyond you. At the top of the garden is a miniature chapel believed to have been built by the son of the blacksmith whose family lived in the cottage in the 1880 s. This is a great feature and a wonderful talking point for your guests! From the chapel a pathway leads back down to the carport side of the cottage where there is also a wood store.
