Wonderful 4 bedroom character cottage with no neighbours. Not listed cottage in nearly 1/3 acre of grounds. EPC Band E


Set in an elevated position in the upper Otter Valley the Cottage is set in a secluded tucked away situation, yet by no means remote, half a mile from the A303.

Set in a tranquil position overlooking the Otter Valley in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property is a short distance from the village of Upottery with a public house, village hall, church and a well-respected primary school.


Honiton lies to the south west and has a railway station on the London Waterloo line and access via A30 trunk road to Exeter, with rail connections to London Paddington and an international airport. Taunton and the M5 (Junction 25) is to the north.


This beautiful character cottage has been renovated over the years enhancing a wealth of old features, with a recent addition of high quality timber effect windows. Despite a date stone showing 1578, the property is not listed allowing a greater freedom to make changes if required.


The traditional front porch leads through a modern glazed door into the cosy sitting room, centred on a large stone inglenook fireplace there is a wood burning stove. There is a snug with steps leading down to a study. To the rear is the kitchen/dining room, fitted with an Eco 7 electric Aga, a separate hob and double ceramic sink, French doors open to a patio and views across the valley. Off the kitchen is a timber lean-to, a great space for boots and coats, with a ceramic sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a WC.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an exposed timber ceiling. There is a family bathroom with separate shower, and an additional WC.


Approached off a quiet lane through electric timber gates, there is a large gravel parking and turning area to the front of the cottage. To the rear of the cottage is a concrete pad/patio, an ideal spot for a conservatory.

Steps lead up to the garden, which has two grass terraces and a near level lawn at the top. There is large timber workshop and garden shed.


Adjacent to the parking is an insulated and lined timber studio with double glazed windows and French doors, an ideal place to work from home.


Mains electric and water. Private drainage. Ultrafast Fibre optic broadband.


From Honiton head on the A30/A303 for about 6 miles, after passing the turning to Chard (A30) take the next left just after the layby. Follow down this lane for about half a mile and the property is on the right. The centre of the postcode is further down on the left.
