Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A delightful Grade II thatched cottage offering characterful accommodation and beautiful garden, enjoying stunning rural views, situated between Kingsbridge and Salcombe

Kingsbridge 2.5 miles; Salcombe 2.5 miles; Totnes 16 miles
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Woolston is a small hamlet situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in delightful rural surroundings just off the A381 which links Kingsbridge to Salcombe and the upper reaches of the estuary. The quiet lane passing the cottage provides easy access to the centre of Salcombe and to the boatyard, useful in the busy summer months.Salcombe itself is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the south west with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of marine fashion shops, pubs and restaurants. Kingsbridge is located at the head of the estuary and is a small market town with a good range of shopping and other facilities.

Sockwell Cottage is a truly delightful property which is Listed Grade II and believed to date from the late 17th or 18th Centuries, with a 20th Century extension. The original building is rendered with a thatched roof and benefiting from wonderful views across farmland to the front of the house towards Dartmoor. The gardens that surround the house are enchanting having been beautifully planted and enabling the fabulous, uninterrupted outlook to be appreciated. With no immediate neighbours, yet within a mile of the A381, the location is spectacular but not isolated. Inside, the original part of the cottage is full of natural features such as beams and exposed stonework, with a fine fireplace in the sitting room in addition to a wood burning stove. This part of the property provides two double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, which is complemented by two additional double bedrooms and a shower room in the other half. With a good sized kitchen/breakfast room, separate dining room and generous entrance hallway, the property has the flexibility to be used as either a permanent or holiday home.
