Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive residential smallholding occupying an outstanding rural position in the picturesque 'Doone Valley', comprising a four/five bedroomed detached house, outbuildings and the adjoining pasture/amenity land. In all about 14.93 Acres.
For sale as a whole or in 2 lots. EPC=F


Badgworthy Cottage represents a most attractive and versatile residential smallholding enjoying a superb rural position tucked away in the picturesque Doone Valley, on the northern edge of the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Affording equestrian, agricultural, conservation and amenity appeal, the property is centred upon a detached house constructed in the 1970's and which, despite now requiring further updating, provides comfortable and well proportioned four/five bedroomed family accommodation. Set in delightful gardens the property is complemented by a useful and adaptable range of outbuildings, currently used for equestrian, workshop and storage purposes, although adaptable to a variety of alternative uses. The house is conveniently situated within its own land, which in recent years has been managed on a organic basis, comprising a combination of reseeded paddocks and a block of hill grazing land divided into convenient enclosures and currently utilised for the grazing of horses, ponies and sheep. Areas of gorse and woodland provide considerable wildlife appeal and an abundance of flora and fauna, with some parts having recently been cleared to encourage wild flowers and orchids.
Badgworthy Cottage extends in total to about 14.93 Acres (6.04 Ha) and is offered for sale as a whole, or in two lots as described within these sale particulars.

The property occupies a truly outstanding rural position accessed over the private track which leads to the National Trust owned, Cloud Farm, and which follows the Badgworthy Water upstream from the pretty village of Oare. Nearby Oare church was the setting for the dramatic fictional shooting of Lorna Doone in RD Blackmores famous novel.
Situated on the Somerset/Devon border, the property lies between Lynton and Porlock within the beautiful Exmoor National Park, close to the stunning North Devon coast. Despite its peaceful and tucked away location Badgworthy Cottage forms an excellent base from which to explore and indulge in a wide variety of country activities including walking, riding, hunting, fishing, shooting, along with water pursuits at Lynmouth, Porlock Weir and Minehead. The property is also conveniently situated for access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication, with the popular towns and coastal villages of Lynton, Lynmouth and Porlock providing local every day services, including primary schools, shops and public houses. The larger towns of Minehead and Barnstaple provide a more extensive range of educational, commercial and recreational facilities.
The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the wonderful North Devon/Somerset coastline, whilst to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyde Bay, Saunton Sands and Instow.   At Barnstaple there is a railway station to Exeter (Tarka Line) with main line rail services are available at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

The property is approached from the lane leading to Cloud Farm over a gravelled entrance drive leading through smart stone pillars to a car parking area to the front of the house. Adjoining the house is a timber and sheeted lean-to Car Port, approx. 4.63m x 4m. This lean-to continues around to the rear to extend the full length of the house, providing a useful covered space beneath a clear polycarbonate roof, with track access to the adjoining land.
Pretty lawned gardens extend from the front of the house to the side with a rock garden style bank and a raised lawn. The gardens contain well stocked flower and shrub borders and a number of mature trees, including copper beech, birch, oak and conifers. Further garden areas are situated to the rear of the house containing trees and shrubs. A plateau has been created for use as a vegetable garden.
Adjoining the entrance to the property is a timber and profile steel roofed building containing a Hay Barn, approx. 8.3m x 6.3m max., with an opening onto the lane and steps leading up to the car parking area. Adjoining is a further Workshop/Store, approx. 6.4m x 3.6m, with double doors.   
A small private garden area on the opposite side of the main track provides access to the pretty Badgworthy Water river.

Lot 1 - Cottage, Outbuildings & Pasture Land extending to about 1.84 Acres The cottage provides well proportioned accommodation accessed via a pretty stone porch leading into the entrance hall, with an understairs shower room and stairs rising to the first floor. The lovely large living room enjoys a triple aspect, containing a fireplace recess inset with a wood burning stove on a slate hearth. A glazed door leads directly out to the gardens. Off the entrance hall, the dining room opens through into the kitchen, which contains a good range of solid wood fronted base units with work surfaces over and matching wall cupboards. There is an inset 1½ bowl sink and a Baumatic range cooker with a five ring gas hob (bottled gas) and electric oven. Space is provided for an under-counter fridge with further space and plumbing for a washing machine. From the kitchen, the side entrance hall has a tiled floor and a glazed sink with adjoining fitted work surface. Doors lead out to the front and rear elevations, with a useful boot room beside the back door, containing a built-in feed storage bin. A versatile room off the side hall may be used as a study or a downstairs bedroom.
On the first floor a main landing, with a built-in airing cupboard, serves four good sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom one has a built-in shower cubicle, whilst bedroom two is currently being used as a first floor living room, with a fitted base unit, work surfaces over and an inset sink.
Note: The accommodation formerly benefitted from oil fired central heating and whilst the radiators and pipework are still in situ the boiler has been removed.
For approximate room dimensions and layout please refer to the enclosed floorplan.

The Land The house and outbuildings are well situated within their own attractive parcel of gently sloping pasture land, which has recently been reseeded and is divided into two convenient enclosures. A track from the cottage provides access to the land, with a further access leading direct from the entrance lane. A levelled area has been created for exercising horses. Enjoying a predominantly westerly aspect, the land affords considerable agricultural, equestrian and amenity appeal. In total Lot 1 extends to about 1.84 Acres (0.74 Ha), as shown shaded pink on the identification plan.

Lot 2 - Pasture and Amenity Land extending to about 13.09 Acres Lying to the south east of Lot 1, this comprises an attractive parcel of pasture and amenity land conveniently divided into a number of enclosures.

Further right of way track access to this land is also available from Cloud Farm. The land comprises gently and moderately sloping permanent pasture on the top of the hill, with more steeply sloping areas of gorse and woodland on the valley side, creating a wonderful wildlife habitat and enjoying superb views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside. Lot 2 is shown shaded green on the identification plan.

Tenure & Possession Freehold with vacant possession available on completion.

Services & Outgoings Mains electricity supply and private borehole water. Drainage of the cottage is to a private system. Please note, the drainage system is likely to require attention and upgrading and prospective purchasers should carry out their own investigations.
