Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Nestling in the beautiful Otter Valley within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Otterton is renowned as a traditional and thriving Devon village with a primary school and community village shop. There is also the historic working mill that has a shop, restaurant and craft centre. There are many lovely walks in the area with Ladram Bay and the coastal path being within one mile away. Picturesque walks beside the River Otter are within easy reach, with a level pathway connecting to the village of Colaton Raleigh and to the pretty seaside town of Budleigh Salterton, which has a good range of shops, boutiques, banks, restaurants and doctors surgeries. This part of the East Devon coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, is a World Heritage Site designated for the distinction of its geological formation. The cathedral city of Exeter is within easy commuting distance whilst nearby Woodbury Common provides some 2800 acres of the largest intact pebble heathland in southern England. The South Devon coast is close to hand providing numerous walks with together a variety of pebble and sandy beaches.

Conway Cottage is a delightful, beautiful picture postcard property, and the current owners have lived there for over 30 years. The main part of the house dates back to the 17th century, has a thatched roof and is of a traditional cob and stone construction.

From Budleigh Salterton proceed out of the town in an easterly direction on the main Sidmouth road on the B1378. After approximately 2 miles take the right turning signposted to Otterton at Brick Cross. Proceed into the village and proceed past the Otterton Mill. Take the second turning on the right into Maunders Hill whereupon Conway Cottage will be found towards the top of the lane on the left hand side.
