The property benefits from delightful countryside views and the back garden has a lovely south westerly aspect over the adjoining farm land. The accommodation comprises a good sized lounge with conservatory off, kitchen, dining room (or ground floor bedroom), bathroom, hallway and rear lobby. On the first floor are two bedrooms, one very large with a concealed shower unit (in a cupboard) and a WC off the landing. The property is a little dated internally and offers a great opportunity to rearrange the accommodation slightly (if desired) whilst updating the fittings and decoration to a more contemporary standard.

Drimpton is a village in West Dorset lying approx. 2 miles from Broadwindsor, where the nearest shop can be found and just 4 miles from the market town of Crewkerne, where there is good range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as a mainline train service to London Waterloo and Exeter. The seaside resort of Lyme Regis is approx. 13 miles to the south. Drimpton benefits from a number of very useful amenities including a Pub (The Royal Oak), the village hall which has a number of events, clubs and societies, the mobile fish and chip service that visits on Tuesday evenings, a regular bus service between Chard and Yeovil. There are shows and events throughout the year and Drimpton is one of the lucky villages that can also boast of high speed fibre broadband, which is now available in the area.
