Full description


A substantial detached chalet bungalow probably built in the 1920s of rendered brick walls under a tiled roof. The Briars has been much improved in recent years (including a newly fitted kitchen) and offers well presented and surprisingly spacious accommodation.

The property is set in attractively laid out and mature grounds of about 1/3 acre, adjacent to the Uplyme Road on the lower side and approached via Yawl Hill Lane (a country lane). There are lovely views through the trees to the wooded slopes of the Lym Valley/Woodhouse Hill.

Yawl Hill Lane is a popular location fronted by substantial detached properties and leading into delightful Devon countryside. It is about a mile from the picturesque village of Uplyme and 2 1/2 miles from the coast at Lyme Regis.

In Uplyme there is a good range of facilities including a Primary School, general store and post office at the petrol station, village hall, Parish Church, cricket and football clubs and pub.

The market town of Axminster is some 3 1/2 miles inland and has a main line railway station (Exeter-Waterloo line).

Lyme Regis is an historic coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away.

In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre, cinema and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
