Tenure: Freehold

TWO fantastic properties including a THREE BEDROOM HOME and a popular THREE BEDROOM HOLIDAY COTTAGE. Set in an ACRE PLOT, positioned at the TOP OF CHEDDAR GORGE, BOASTING WOODLAND, GARDENS, FRUIT TREES and PANORAMIC VIEWS of the SOMERSET LEVELS and GLASTONBURY TOR. Huge POTENTIAL for FURTHER DEVELOPMENT.

You will not find another property like this, offering such versatile accommodation and a superb business opportunity, within such a stunning location. Hidden behind wooden gates at the end of a tucked away lane at the top of The Lippiatt in the popular village of Cheddar, Blue Moon and The Clangers are incredibly private and peaceful with quite possibly one of the best views overlooking the entire village and beyond, across towards the Somerset levels. Although both three bedroom properties have comparable floor space, Blue Moon is currently being used as the vendors’ home while The Clangers is run as a profitable holiday let.
Built in the late 1920’s, Blue Moon has been extended and improved to create a wonderfully light and airy living space with floor to ceiling windows on two aspects giving spectacular views towards Glastonbury Tor to the South, and Wales to the West. There is potential to add a first floor master bedroom suite (subject to planning provision, planning previously granted but lapsed), perhaps with a balcony to enjoy the 360 degree stunning views. The Clangers was built in the 1980s to accommodate a previous owner’s relative and has since been extended to three bedrooms and renovated to a high standard by the current owner. The kitchen and main living areas are south facing and again floor to ceiling glass doors in the sitting and family rooms make the most of the incredible views and sunshine. Hidden behind The Clangers, a large decked patio has often been used as a stage/party area by the current owners and the multi-level garden and woodland areas lend themselves to outdoor events and celebrations. There is parking for 5-6 cars and a sizeable workshop/garage.
The draw for many will be that staggering plot of over an acre, so unusual in the village. For those interested in a small holding, vegetable plot, some goats or a few chickens, there is the option to rent the adjoining field of about a third of an acre from Longleat Estates at approximately £150 per annum. Blue Moon and The Clangers really offer the best of all worlds; well positioned for local amenities and school, fantastic for transport routes and the commute yet it’s a quiet and peaceful haven tucked away as much as you need it to be. Country Lovers will delight in the wildlife, walking and country pursuits available in the abundance right on the doorstep. For someone seeking a lifestyle business, families, two generations of one family, or even two families looking to combine forces, and seeking space and versatility with land, look no further than Blue Moon and the Clangers – two properties: a real one-off opportunity and sure to be extremely popular.

Situated at the foot of the Mendip Hills, Cheddar is an ideal base from which to enjoy wonderful country walks. Road links are excellent, with easy access to the A38. Bristol is only 30 minutes away and the M5 motorway approximately 20 minutes. Public transport is well represented with a bus service passing through the village every hour linking Cheddar with Axbridge, Weston Super Mare and Wells. Bristol International Airport is 25 minutes away. Please note, the village is not under the flight path therefore aircraft noise is not a consideration for residents. Local attractions include Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury Tor and the seaside at Weston Super Mare.
The village itself has a wide range of shops to cater for everyday needs, banks, a building society and a Post Office as well as doctor and dentist surgeries. There is a three-tier school system where children up to the age of nine attend the First School, then move on to Fairlands Middle School and finally on to The Kings of Wessex Academy and all these schools are within the village. The Kings Fitness and Leisure Centre adjoining the Kings of Wessex Academy offers an extensive range of activities for all the family and has an indoor heated swimming pool. There are also a number of village sports clubs and societies to cater for everyone.

OUTSIDE 
Outside the property is set centrally and back from the lane in its generous plot with access via timber double gates, with a separate pedestrian gate. A sweeping tarmac driveway then leads up towards the properties, with well landscaped gardens to either side. In the area immediately to the front of both dwellings there is a large level parking area which will accommodate six/eight vehicles, and allows for turnaround space. The gardens, which are a true feature of the property, have been the subject of an ongoing labour of love to really maximise their potential. They are extremely private and wrap around the two properties providing many areas of interest and design, interspersed with mature plants and shrub beds and well stocked, with fully enclosed boundaries on all sides. To the front there are wide decked verandahs wrapping around Blue Moon, with wide paved steps leading up to them. To the rear, areas of interest include crazy paved pathways and terracing.

HOLIDAY LETTING 
The Clangers has been run as a holiday cottage since April 2016 and commands a rate of between £123-£150 per night stay. The current owners made the deliberate decision to make the property available only for the summer months and it has been occupied 75% of the time. Modern and renovated to a high standard; The Clangers offers a low maintenance but with potentially high return business opportunity. Visit http://cheddarholidaycottage.com "Nestled into the side of the Gorge, underneath a canopy of Scots Pines and with panoramic views of Glastonbury Tor and the Somerset Levels, Cheddar Holiday Cottage is a unique place to stay. Facing South, large windows in every room ensure you make the most of the sunshine while in Winter a log-burning stove keeps you warm and cosy. Staying here, you will be surrounded by nature in a haven of peace and tranquility - it is easy to relax and forget the world if you want to."

OUR VENDORS SAY - 
"We bought Blue Moon and The Clangers in 2004 as a way of helping our daughter and son-in-law get a foot on the property ladder. They both worked in Bristol and it is extremely easy commuting distance to the city. When they decided to work overseas, we obtained planning consent in April 2016 to let The Clangers as a holiday cottage. My wife and I currently live in Blue Moon and we have the best of both worlds-living in an area of outstanding natural beauty and having an easy to manage business close by. Guests love the house and location as much as we do and we were fully booked throughout July and August and into September 2016, and the same in 2017. It has the potential to be a very profitable business. The reason we are leaving? We have been incredibly happy and have loved living here, but the time has come to downsize and we'd like to do travelling of our own!"
