Bickwell House is a splendid large family home within walking distance of the town centre

slate roof. The current owners have completely refurbished the property in recent years with
immense style and character together having quality fittings throughout, making a truly exceptional residence. The house sits in the center of its grounds which extend to over 1.5 acres and is a delightful example of multi levelled, well laid out gardens to include open lawns and well stocked borders. The house enjoys a lovely south facing aspect with fine views across its gardens to the coast and sea.
