A door leads through to the dining room with an inglenook fireplace and a large bay window. Across the rear hall is the bright sitting room with a working fireplace, wooden floor and double doors leading out to the garden and summerhouse. A snug, featuring the original well workings overlooks the terrace, and a large utility room with a cloakroom are found to the right of the main hall.

Upstairs, the master bedroom with a dressing area and walk in wardrobe/store is serviced by a separate shower room. Three further bedrooms, one with a large window seat in the bay window, all have en-suite shower rooms. Bedroom five is currently used as a study and there is a further family bathroom.

Clappentail is located in an elevated position above the popular town of Lyme Regis, with spectacular views from the gardens and is only a short distance from the town centre and harbour.

Lyme Regis is a gem of a fishing town with breath-taking scenery and its literary and artistic connections. It has a wide range of high street and independent shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs, a theatre, a cinema and a fossil museum. Fresh seafood can be eaten at Mark Hix Oyster and Fishhouse overlooking the beach. For more rural eateries the River Cottage HQ is 3 miles away and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Canteen is based in nearby Axminster. There is also a Waitrose supermarket on the outskirts of the Regency town of Sidmouth and also one in Bridport, 10 miles away. The well-respected Colyton Grammar School is about 6 miles away and the property is a short walk to The Woodroffe School.

Exeter, approximately 28 miles away is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good shopping, including John Lewis, and restaurants. There is also a Waitrose supermarket in the city. Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.

Intercity high speed trains operate from Axminster and Exeter St David’s to London Paddington, the Midlands and the North of England and via Salisbury to London Waterloo. There are also an increasing number of flights to UK and international destinations from Exeter airport, including a new route to London City airport with three flights a day taking less than an hour.

Clappentail’s gardens have been maintained by a keen gardener and make the most of the spectacular views out over the Jurassic Coastline including Golden Cap, Stone Barrow and as far as Portland.

To the rear of the property lies a paved terrace, accessed from a door in the hall, with a sheltered seating area making it ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining and surrounded by a flowering rockery and established trees. Steps from the sitting room lead to the summerhouse and a large lawned area with flowering borders. Steps under a pergola lead up to a further level lawned area with a large deck and another summerhouse, making the most of the coastal views over the cliffs and sea. The garden is bordered by hedging and fencing and there is an orchard area with apple and plum trees and fruit bushes. A Wendy house sits in amongst the new trees with a bed of established shrubs to the front.

A further path leads to a gravelled area with raised vegetable beds and access to the garage and workshop/studio. The studio has heating and light and would make a great home office or workspace. The garage has an up and over door to the road, an inspection pit and pedestrian access to the gravelled area. Double gates from here lead to a parking area, with space for several cars, accessed off the road.
