Delightful detached cottage in a beautiful countryside setting. Character with plenty of period features, spacious accommodation and a private aspect make this a superb opportunity. Country style kitchen, 3 bedrooms, two receptions, lovely views and a private garden to sit and relax! EPC: Band F

Set in stunning countryside this fine cottage lies just outside the picturesque hamlet of Blackdown. Presented to a very high standard Smithy Cottage has a warm and welcoming atmosphere along with period features and a very private setting with far reaching views.
The accommodation includes three good size bedrooms, family bathroom, cloakroom, attractive country kitchen, dining room and a large sitting room with feature fireplace. Most of the rooms benefit from the views which adds much to the wonderful atmosphere and sense of seclusion. The current owners have taken good care of their home and this will be obvious on inspection. Plenty of parking to the front with double gates leading to gravel driveway and garage.
The gardens make a great feature, well established with a variety of mature and interesting trees and shrubs. The rear garden has a very sunny aspect and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. The surrounding area provides an abundance of walks and bridleways and there is good access to the coast.

The property enjoys an elevated location on the Somerset/Dorset border, overlooking the renowned Marshwood Vale and is within easy reach of Lyme Regis (10 miles). The small village of Thorncombe is 1.5 miles distant with a thriving award-winning Community Shop/Post office, Primary School, garage, church and a vibrant community. Marshwood, 3 miles away, also has similar facilities. The delightful historic towns of Beaminster and Bridport are about 5/10 miles away to the South-East, whilst Axminster is about 10 miles to the South West. The small town of Crewkerne (5 miles) offers many facilities, a wide range of shops (inc Waitrose), a library, schools, professional services and sporting facilities. Crewkerne and Axminster both have mainline SW train stations.

The front has a private aspect with a gravel driveway with double gates, a selection of attractive and well established trees, shrubs and flower beds. Lawn with gravel path, log store. The garage has up and over door, power and light, windows providing a double aspect.
The rear garden is also very private with far reaching views across the countryside, lawn, summer house, gravel path with side access. A selection of mature flowers and shrubs. An excellent position to sit and relax while enjoying the sunny aspect.
