A beautifully characterful and romantic grade II listed detached house with Cider and Coaching barns set in private gardens of c 0.65 acres.


Woodmans Stoup is situated at the heart of the village of Colyford benefitting from an active community with a range of facilities including two village inns, restaurant, post office, general store/butchers, church and village hall.


Colyford and nearby small town of Colyton are perhaps most noted for the much acclaimed Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top state schools. The stunning Jurassic coast, England's first World Heritage Site is 2 miles to the South via the seaside town of Seaton. An historic tramway operates along the banks of the river Axe providing a nostalgic and scenic connection between Colyton, Colyford and Seaton.


Woodmans Stoup is a substantial and beautifully evocative Grade II listed detached 17th century house nestled amidst 0.65 acres of mature south facing private gardens.


The property exhibits all the charm and character synonymous with its historic origins being quite possibly the earliest settlement within the village. Conserved and renovated by our clients it is currently operated as a successful holiday let enterprise attracting year round visitors.


The accommodation is as generous as it is versatile with period features throughout including flagstone floors, batten plank doors, curved reveals and exposed beams. The formal entrance hall lies between Family and Sitting Rooms, the former continuing through to a Study whilst the latter is centred around an impressive dressed stone inglenook fireplace with open hearth. The Dining Room has doors to courtyard and garden, whilst linking to the Kitchen, fitted in farmhouse style with a combination of solid wood and granite surfaces and a cream gas fired AGA. A Utility Room lies to the rear of the Kitchen linking a second staircase and a ground floor 4th Bedroom with separate fitted Shower Room.


On the first floor the accommodation can be arranged as shown on the floor plan, as several bedrooms, or connected to form generous bedroom suits, with dressing rooms and en suites.


Set behind a tall stonewall, the gravel and paved courtyard provides extensive parking. The gardens are beautifully mature and private with sweeping level lawns punctuated by pathways and period stone walling with mature trees and shrubs providing an attractive leafy backdrop. Nestled between the traditional U shape of the house and barn is a sheltered south facing courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining.


Alongside the courtyard attached to the house is a beautiful barn offering garaging and/or party/games room opportunities. Permission to convert the Linhay Barn to a two bed holiday cottage was granted on 5th July 2011 under ref: 11/0303/FUL but has subsequently lapsed.


In the South East corner of the grounds is a stone built cider barn housing a fascinating original horse driven cider press.


All mains services connected. Fibre Broadband available subject to BT services.
