DESCRIPTION Location, location, location! Just imagine the lifestyle... lovely blustery walks on the beach followed by a hearty Sunday lunch and a cosy afternoon by the fire... or... an afternoon in the garden, tending the veg, followed by a few beers and a barbecue as the sun sets over the beach... this lifestyle could so easily be yours at this wonderfully characterful 'attached' cottage! Dating back around 200 years (we think!) Holm Cottage forms a substantial wing attached to a much larger house to the south. Its double fronted exterior gives every appearance of being detached as it is only attached by one wall to next door and the plot of around 0.256 acres, offers a high degree of privacy ... you really do quickly forget that you are still attached to next door.

The cottage has been much improved in the last couple of years not least by the current owner who has made significant and very recent updates and boasts a heady dose of character features combined with modern amenities. Indeed, it has been decorated and carpeted and includes some wonderful oak flooring and oak doors. There is a fitted kitchen complete with appliances, a lounge with woodburner, a dining room with a feature fireplace, a sunny conservatory, three double bedrooms, a bathroom, an en suite shower and cloakroom. It really is a 'move in and unpack' character filled space!

The outside is equally as impressive, as the large mature partly walled gardens amount to about 0.256 acre and include ample parking, patio areas, a walled courtyard, large garage (carpeted and converted into a gym), workshop and vegetable garden. The views over open countryside to Sand Point and Woodspring Priory are wonderful and contribute hugely to the feeling of rural seclusion without isolation.

The 'wow' factor lies in the location, the cottage has little or no parking traffic as Beach Road is a 'no through' lane leading to just one more distant property miles away on the hillside, and to the National Trust car park below the hill. Walkers and country lovers make the most of the location, which is utterly unique, yet civilisation in the form of a regular bus into town is only a short walk away back along the lane towards Kewstoke. Indeed you are in no way isolated, being close to transport routes, and convenient for schools. And indeed, what a fantastic place to bring up a family, the plot size means that any child would have plenty of space to run around and yet as mentioned, everything any family could need is just down the road in Weston Super Mare. Feel like you are on holiday all the time! Trust us... Arrange a viewing without delay!

Our vendor says ... We intended staying here for years but have just outgrown it a bit. We have made some significant improvements to the house, including some landscaping of the garden, the creation of some fenced off areas, and fitting automatic entrance gates. We have loved the secluded, yet convenient nature of the cottage, and it is fantastic for kids and dogs!

We have noticed ... What a delightful cottage, in a spot which is truly up there with the best. A real mixture of period character with convenience, with very little that you would have to do other than for personal taste. Imagine summers spent with the beach just around the corner and the wonderful walks in that beautiful countryside. Imagine barbecues in the garden, a few chickens scrabbling around and even a kitchen garden, there are so many possibilities! Viewings absolutely essential! 

SITUATION The town centre of Weston-super-Mare is just a short drive away and amenities include the indoor Sovereign Shopping Centre, doctors, dentists, museum, library, cinema, theatre as well as Weston sea front, promenade and Grand Pier. There are state schools in Lympsham and Weston-super-Mare, and for independent education, Sidcot is an excellent private school just 4 miles away in Winscombe, while Bristol, Taunton, Glastonbury and Street also offer a wide variety of schools. The M5 is within easy reach as is the mainline railway at Weston. Bristol Airport is an easy drive to the north with its scheduled and low cost flights, both national and international. The countryside is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits within a short drive.  

DIRECTIONS From the M5 junction 21, take the A370 exit to Weston-super-Mare. Take the left towards Worle then turn right at the junction just past the law courts and follow Queensway going straight on over three roundabouts into Lower Norton Lane. Turn right into Sand Road and continue running right onto Beach Road, go almost to the end and Holm Cottage is on the right hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale board.
