About This Property

An attractive 3 bedroom period cottage set in approximately 6.5 Acres of gardens and meadow land together with an excellent range of outbuildings and fishing rights on the River Axe. EPC: Band D

This rather unique cottage is believed to date back to the late 1800's and is understood to have originally been the former toll house to Weycroft Bridge. Stone built and set beneath a tiled roof this quirky period property offers comfortable and well presented accommodation with a wealth of character including exposed timberwork and beams and period fireplaces. There are two cosy reception rooms, both with multifuel stoves, a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a smart ground floor shower room. To the first floor are three generous double bedrooms with the master enjoying en-suite facilities together with a separate cloakroom. The majority of windows are double glazed and heating is provided by a gas boiler (LPG) to radiators.

The property is located immediately adjacent to Weycroft Bridge on the A358 and is approached through double timber gates that lead to an extensive parking area and double garage. There is an area of formal garden with a lovely view of the River Axe that run the length of the Western boundary and beyond the garden is a level wild flower meadow with mature trees and hedging and a haven for wildlife and birds. There is an excellent range of outbuildings including stabling, workshop, hay barn and games room, which has recently been refurbished and would make a useful holiday let/granny annexe (Subject to planning and the necessary consents). The whole area is believed to extend to 6.5 Acres and includes fishing rights on the River Axe.

The property enjoys a convenient location at the side of Weycroft Bridge on the A358 and previous owners have operated a Bed and Breakfast business.
