Situation And Amenities - This charming home is set in a prime position enjoying a secluded spot in Rocombe on the fringes of Uplyme. The village of Uplyme has a variety of local amenities including a petrol station, post office, church, school, village hall with cricket pavilion and play area, and a pub with a delightful beer garden. About two miles away is the bustling and picturesque town of Lyme Regis. Lyme is part of the stunning Jurassic Coast which stretches from Dorset to East Devon. The town has a thriving heart offering convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety for a town of its size, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants like Hix's Oyster Bar and historic hotels. The town has a good provision of day to day amenities including banks, a health centre, churches, well regarded primary and secondary schooling, a library, a cinema and a charming independent theatre. Lyme has a fantastic beach with golden sands, shallow waters and the famous Cobb with moorings for local vessels and charters for the keen fisherman or day tripper. The whole area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent walking and riding out opportunities easily accessible from the property. The Moorings is a convenient four miles away from the mainline station at Axminster with services to London Waterloo, making the area an ideal home or holiday retreat with excellent road and rail access further westwards into Devon and Cornwall. The larger historic cities of Exeter and Bath are accessible by road or rail to cater for further needs.

Description - The Moorings is a quirky and substantial detached property that has evolved over the years now offering a charming family home set in 2.8 acres of woodland and gardens whilst enjoying stunning views across the valley. The original core of the property dates back approximately 200 years with further additions in the 1970s. Whilst parts of the property are traditionally built there is also a non traditional GI clad section. The property sits in an elevated rural position in 2.8 acres of garden and woodland in the hills above popular Uplyme and Lyme Regis and, therefore, is close to the Jurassic Coast. The existing accommodation comprises reception room, which sits in the original part of the house and has a delightful fireplace with woodburner, farmhouse style kitchen with solid fuel Rayburn, utility room, ground floor bathroom, study/bedroom 4 and conservatory. Steps lead up to a higher level with two further bedrooms and a cloakroom. Further steps lead to a third bedroom which is on the first floor. The property is ideally positioned to enjoy the fantastic views across the valley. The current owners have implemented a number of improvements that have made the house more heat efficient in the winter have aesthetically refreshed and renovated the home.

Outside - The Moorings is approached from the lane via a sweeping driveway, which comes into the rear of the property. There is a further parking area and garage at lane level beyond the house. As mentioned, the property sits in 2.8 acres of mature gardens and woodland with level lawns to the front and rear of the cottage, and a vegetable garden, all of which are ideally positioned to enjoy the views across the valley. There are a number of sweeping paths which wind their way up the hill and through the woodland. Planted with a variety of mature trees, the woods are awash with spring bulbs and really need to be seen to be appreciated. At the top of the woodland there is a level area where there is a timber built field shelter and a double five bar gate giving access to the top lane.

Continue along Red Lane and turn left onto Spring Head Road. Following along Spring Head Road, turn right at Whitty Down, signposted Rocombe, and proceed down the hill.
