A charming and somewhat rustic detached cottage in a pleasant rural location. Flexible accommodation with kitchen breakfast room, five bedrooms and a self contained stone and thatched annexe. EPC Band F


Home Farm Cottage is a beautiful detached cottage which enjoys a wonderful farmhouse atmosphere and a stunning semi-rural location on a no through lane. The property is understood to have once been a terrace of three workers cottages which over the years have been combined to make a lovely family home interlaced with fabulous character features including delightful fireplaces with wood burning stoves and quarry tiled flooring.

Owing to the longhouse-style layout, dual aspect rooms can be found throughout . The accommodation, which is well proportioned and flexible, includes two comfortable reception rooms, farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, five generous bedrooms (principal with en-suite bathroom) and two shower rooms. Due to the layout with two staircases leading to the first floor, there is a degree of separation in the sleeping accommodation which works well for families or those expecting regular guests. Alternatively, there is great potential to use part of the property as a self-contained annexe.

A significant asset to the property is the detached annexe which, with stone walls beneath a thatched roof, mirrors the rustic aesthetic of the main house. Benefitting from its own private walled garden and a well next to the entrance door, this is a wonderful opportunity to realise an income via holiday letting, or to accommodate extended family. Inside there is a sitting room, fitted kitchen with stairs to a large landing area boasting vaulted ceilings with a bathroom and double bedroom.

Now offered for sale with no forward chain, the property could benefit from a programme of sympathetic updating.


The property is approached from the public road along a driveway which gives access to both the cottage and the separate annexe. Mature, well stocked gardens extend around the cottage, the rearmost part of which offers lovely views across the adjoining field. A separate walled garden is located to the front, which can be easily allocated to the annexe if desired.


There is a public footpath along the driveway at the front of the property. There is also a right of way for the landowner to access the adjoining fields.


The property is located in a rural position close to Chideock which is a charming village within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with good access to the World Heritage site Jurassic Coastline at Seatown. There are a number of facilities within the village including two pubs, a shop/post office, churches and village hall, and spectacular cliff, country and coastal walks can be enjoyed in the area. Lyme Regis and Bridport are both nearby, with plenty of arts, crafts and cultural events being held all year round.
