A CHARMING 3 BEDROOMED COTTAGE SITUATED IN THE PICTURESQUE FISHING VILLAGE OF BEER WITH PARKING AND VIEWS OVER THE VILLAGE

This pretty cottage began its life under the name of ‘Gwynfa’ (believed to be the Welsh for ‘Paradise’) and subsequently became known as West View Cottage.

It is a beautifully presented property situated within the heart of the peaceful fishing village of Beer and is believed to have been built in the early 1900’s. Since then it has been used by the Catholic Church for Mass and as a sanctuary for evacuees during the Second World War.

G.H. Thomas also visited the property and painted a watercolour of the Cottage as it was in 1915. He resided there for August and September of that year describing his time there as 'Perfect Days' in the 'Cottage by the Sea'.

Most of the previous occupiers have remained at the property for at least 10 years prior to it becoming a holiday let; a real testament to the Cottage's idyllic location.

Attractive features still remain as a reminder of its past connection with the Church such as the impressive oak door with surrounding stone mullions, the mosaic floor in the entrance hall and the lovely wooden staircase, with 19th Century carved mouldings.

Over recent years the accommodation has been immaculately maintained and improved and combines an elegant mix of modern amenities, such as a recent kitchen and bathroom suite, with character features including high ceilings, wrought iron feature fireplaces, picture rails and an inviting open fireplace with stone, brick and woodwork surround.

The principle rooms are bright and spacious and most benefit from excellent southerly views over the village towards the Church.

A particularly attractive feature is its sympathetically designed garden area, with Indian stone patio and feature gravel beds. Great care and attention has been taken in order to transform the garden into a contemporary outside space that utilises the properties private end of terrace position and the excellent views it commands over Beer. It can also be enjoyed all year round due to the addition of an impressive contemporary fire pit.

After an extensive and comprehensive project, the property now also benefits from its own hardstanding parking area which has been built in keeping with the rest of the property.

West View Cottage has been successfully let through Jean Bartlett Holidays throughout its current ownership and has a projected turnover this year of around £17,000. It already has confirmed bookings throughout 2019, with almost half of them being returning guests. Further information can be made available to interested applicants on request. Alternatively, enquiries can also be made via the lettings agent by calling 01297 23221 or by visiting www.jeanbartlettcottageholidays.co.uk

It would also be well suited as an excellent holiday retreat or primary residence. Vacant possession is available in the event that a purchaser does not wish to continue with the 2019 holiday bookings.

Beer is much sought after by visitors and residents. It offers a selection of shops for day to day needs, pubs and restaurants, school, parish church, village hall, doctors surgery etc.

It has a thriving local community and an extensive beach in a sheltered cove which provides a base for a number of working fishing boats and a sailing club. Nearby are the larger towns of Seaton and Axminster (with a main line railway station) and some excellent secondary schools including Colyton Grammar.
