Situation And Amenities - The property is situated in the desirable and picturesque village of Hawkchurch with views of the rolling Blackdown Hills. The village boasts a thriving and proactive local community with a village shop, a well-regarded primary school and a well utilised and modern village hall which hosts a variety of clubs and activities. There is a local pub that also provides guest rooms and from the village there is a regular bus service into Axminster. The village is five miles from the market town of Axminster which has good rail links to London and westwards to Exeter or further into Devon or onwards to Cornwall. This historic town is popular for its River Cottage Canteen and store and the world renowned Axminster carpets. To the south, there is access to the stunning Jurassic Coast at the pretty harbour town of Lyme Regis (7 miles away) which has featured in many films over the years. Here you will find a surprising array of convenience and bespoke shopping, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants and historic hotels. The town has a good provision of day to day amenities including banks, a health centre, churches, a library, a museum, a cinema and a charming independent theatre. The area is extremely well provided for by excellent private and state schools at both primary and secondary levels including the famous Colyton Grammar and Woodroffe School. Lyme has a fantastic family beach with golden sands, shallow waters and charming rock pools at low tide. This pretty stretch of coast is designated as a World Heritage Site and has excellent opportunities for a number of pursuits, from a spot of mackerel fishing to a fossil hunt or ride out into the countryside. The larger centres of Exeter and Taunton are also accessible by road.

Description - Glebe Cottage is an extensive double-fronted house (not listed), of rendered stone elevations under a generously pitched slate tiled roof. Access is from the lane via double gates, which lead onto a large gravel driveway with parking for several cars. In front of the property, beyond the driveway, is a large garden, mostly laid to lawn and enclosed by mature trees and shrubbery. Within these grounds you will find Puffin Cottage, an impressive self-contained 2 bedroom property tucked away from the main house with plenty of privacy of its own, also overlooking the mature gardens. Inside the main house you will find an entrance porch, leading to the front door and hallway, with a reception room either side, and large farm house style eat in kitchen beyond. Reception one is a large sitting room featuring part panelled walls, original floorboards, an open fireplace with integrated log burner, and double aspect offering reams of natural light and views to the front and side gardens. Reception two is laid out as a dining room, also with original floorboards and feature fireplace with integrated log burner. Beyond this is another large room currently used as a study, with a door leading to the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room, situated at the end of the main hallway, has an LPG Rayburn set within a large fireplace, separate LPG Gas range cooker, larder cupboard, and space for a large dining table and chairs. The kitchen leads to the side garden via French doors, and to a utility room and pantry before the back door leading on to the land at the rear. Also off the hallway on the ground floor is a spacious WC and shower room. Upstairs the landing leads to a family bathroom and 4 double bedrooms, including a vast master bedroom, and a single bedroom, all with fantastic views over the gardens and over the surrounding countryside.
