Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Thought to be an original smugglers cottage, this property certainly did and still does give the most breath taking views of both the dramatic Western Island coastline, and the English Channel beyond. The area is an area of outstanding natural beauty and gives easy access to local bridleways and an abundance of footpaths in the area, ideal for lovers of the outdoors.

Occupying an enviable plot this beautifully positioned cottage offers some attractive character features such as flag stone flooring, a large feature fireplace and exposed beams in some of its principle rooms. On arrival at the cottage, beyond the gated driveway you will find ample parking and a detached double garage. Should buyers need this space subject to relevant permissions could give scope as a home office or simply for putting away the car. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises of three reception rooms, one of which could serve as a ground floor bedroom if required, as also on the ground floor is a family bathroom. In many of the rooms on both the ground floor and first floor of the home, there are dual aspect windows, which allow plenty of light into the cottage, and also ensures the impressive views can be enjoyed whatever you’re doing. The kitchen has been fitted with neutral units and has ample storage, as a utility room also serves this space, so those bulky appliances do not clutter your kitchen. The sun room is an ideal space to use for morning coffee, leading directly from the kitchen and offering a lovely view of the impressive coastline.

To the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are good-sized double rooms, and a shower room suitably serves this floor. The rear garden is extensive and the current owner who has occupied the home for 35 years has developed a large vegetable growing area with greenhouses and established beds. In addition accessed at the rear of the house is a large workshop.

The summerhouse enjoyed after a hard day’s work in the garden, has been placed elevated up the garden to ensure the views are unrivalled for admiring the impressive sunsets renowned in this area.

What the Owner says:


My wife fell in love with the house, the views and the countryside all around. My family have grown up here and spent many happy years.

Sadly my wife has passed away and the house is now just too big for me to look after. I am sorry to be leaving but I hope the new owners love the house and location as much as we have.
