Situation - Honeysuckle cottage is situated just outside of the Exmoor National Park in the hamlet of Battleton, less than a 10 minute walk to the centre of Dulverton town. Dulverton is a delightful small town with a strong community, nestling in the Barle River valley within the Exmoor National Park and is well known as The Gateway to Exmoor. It provides good shopping together with a post office, chemist, doctors and veterinary surgeries, dentist, library, junior school and a well-used town hall. There are also good recreational facilities including squash courts, all weather tennis courts, football and cricket pitches.
Tiverton provides further shopping and amenities, as well as Tiverton Parkway station with fast train services to London Paddington and the rest of the country, plus Junction 27 of the M5 motorway.
The property is well located for access to the varied footpaths and bridleways of Exmoor with Haddon Hill and Wimbleball Lake close by with its variety of water sports.

Description - This charming predominantly stone and cob cottage is thought to be of 19th Century origin and offers deceptively spacious accommodation over three floors. The property benefits from double glazing, off road parking for two cars and a terraced garden with views over the valley. The cottage is built of stone and cob with rendered elevations under a slate roof and has recently been re-roofed, re-wired and re-plumbed. Particular attention has been paid to a sympathetic refurbishment of the cottage and the use of aged oak.

Accommodation - As illustrated from the floorplan, a beautiful panelled oak front door leads into the sitting room, which has a stone inglenook fireplace with beam over and a feature bread oven. The room also benefits from original beams and an oak window seat. From here doors lead into the kitchen and dining room and oak stairs lead to the first floor. The dining room also has a stone inglenook fireplace with beam over and a window seat. The kitchen has double aspect windows and an outside door to the parking area. There is a good range of light oak effect units, incorporating a dishwasher, hob, oven, extractor fan, worktops and space for a fridge and a freezer. Adjacent is the utility room which has a fitted worktop with sink, a cloakroom with low level WC and washbasin, as well as an external door that leads to the rear of the property.
The first floor has 2 bedrooms. The double bedroom enjoys double aspect windows and exposed beams. The second single bedroom has an exposed beam and feature window seat. The bathroom has a modern white suite, shower attachment and tiled floors. Oak stairs lead to the second floor where there is a good sized double bedroom with double aspect windows, storage cupboards and an en-suite bathroom. On the landing is a separate cloakroom and an external door to the garden bridge.

Outside - The property benefits from a gravelled area to the side of the house providing off-road parking for two vehicles. The garden at the rear is accessed from the second floor of the property via a bridge with wooden decking and galvanised railings. There is a level decked patio offering an area to sit and enjoy the fine views across Dulverton to the surrounding countryside. The fenced garden is currently terraced and landscaped providing scope for personal improvement.
Above the fenced garden is an area of land which considerably increases the size of the garden but has natural vegetation.
