Unique detached character cottage (Access only Trinity Hill)
A rare opportunity to live in a peaceful rural period cottage on the outskirts of the pretty hamlet of Wyke, just ten minutes drive to Axminster & Lyme Regis.
Originally just the 400 year old stone central smaller section but has been extended on both sides on 2 levels to now offer three bedrooms and a spacious quirky characterful property bursting with charm. Nestled on the edge of a nature reserve it offers a truly peaceful & enchanting idyll but also within 10 minutes drive of Axminster shops & facilities. The gardens and setting are lovely, with both a landscaped very private (approx. third of an acre) garden including a further large area beyond the house with chicken coop, log store and grassland. Plenty of scope for change subject to planning consent.
Accessed by car via a track down through the nature reserve from Trinity Hill Road the cottage is hidden from view with a great deal of privacy. A winding path leads down past a large detached timber workshop to the front door.
