Full description


Hayes Cottage is a detached, chalet style house, which was probably built in the1970s with cavity walls faced in reconstructed stone beneath a tiled roof. There is a later extension on the west side of the house, which provides a utility room and studio on the ground floor and an office on the first floor. The property would now benefit from some refurbishment.

The house is quietly tucked away in the small rural hamlet of Holditch (which is actually in Dorset although it has a Somerset postcode). It backs onto fields at the rear and, on the far side of the lane to the front is also farmland which gently slopes down to the River Axe.

There are no village facilities locally within Holditch but close by at Thorncombe (approximately 1.5 miles distant) is a village shop, a primary school and village hall, etc. The larger towns of Axminster and Chard are both within 10 - 15 minutes' drive.
