Full description


Clappentail was reportedly built in 1638 and is Grade II Listed. It is principally of stone construction, part rendered externally with a slate roof. In recent years the property has undergone extensive modernisation with care taken to retain the inherent character features. There are fine country views over the Lym Valley and from the First Floor and gardens excellent sea and coastal views.

The property is currently occupied as a delightful private residence but it is equally well suited as a 'home with an income'. The previous owner ran a high quality B&B business and achieved awards including a 5 Diamond Gold Award from the English Tourism Council.

Clappentail is in a great location as a family home as it is close to the highly regarded Woodroffe School, St Michael's Primary School and the town centre and seafront are just 1/2 mile away. There are attractive mature gardens with 2 summer houses, greenhouse, garage and studio/workshop. It also benefits from an extensive parking area.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, century's 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. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). 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.


The vendors commissioned the design of a detached 'eco' house within the grounds but have not applied for planning consent. Further information is available on request.
