The Property.
April Cottage is a detached Grade II Listed residence which has origins dating back several centuries and is a real 'chocolate box' cottage with its thatched roof and principally flint and Tolcis stone elevations.

It has well presented accommodation which retains some character features including beamed ceilings, exposed timbers, and stone fireplace to the sitting room with a woodburner.

Undoubtedly, one of the main features of April Cottage is its garden, which creates the most stunning colourful setting. It has been lovingly tendered by the current owners for many years and is a mass of colour with all the elements of a traditional cottage garden. There are borders stocked with a huge variety of shrubs and flowers, lawns and a paved terrace, and an attractive well with a thatched canopy. There is also a productive kitchen garden, timber green house and several sheds.

To the side of the cottage is a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is a detached garage which has an electric door.

April Cottage is located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Membury and sits on the westerly slopes, with a sunny southerly orientation. Membury is a scattered village within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a Primary School, ancient Parish Church and Village Shop/Post Office.

The market town of Axminster lies approximately 3.5 miles to the south-east and has an extensive range of shops and eateries, including The Canteen shop and restaurant, which is owned by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. It also has a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The World Heritage Coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is some 9 miles to the south and access to the A303 is approximately 9 miles to the north.

The busy market town of Honiton is also some 9 miles to the west and has a good range of shops and mainline rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter, the Cathedral City, has excellent shopping facilities and a mainline rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access and lies some 28 miles west.
