A detached 3 bedroom cottage located on the edge of the Cricket St Thomas Estate with attractive gardens and country views.
Chalkway Cottage is an attractive detached period property which has origins dating back, we believe, to the 1840's and was formerly a 'woodmans' cottage in connection with the estate.
The accommodation is light and well presented with many of the rooms taking advantage of the wonderful views over the gardens to the countryside beyond. It is also adaptable in its layout and currently provides a ground floor bedroom whilst to the first floor there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The accommodation would no doubt suit a young family, or be perfect for those looking for a lifestyle change, as well as the potential for a holiday home/bolt hole in this beautiful part of the Somerset countryside. We are also informed by the owners that the broadband connection offers sufficient speeds for those looking to work from home.
Chalkway Cottage is situated in a wonderful rural location only half a mile or so from the village of Winsham. It sits amongst some of the county's most attractive rolling countryside, on the fringes of the Cricket St Thomas Estate, enjoying stunning views across the Estate's parkland setting and benefitting from the sporting and leisure facilities available.
Winsham has an active village community and a good range of facilities which include a shop/post office, primary school and pre-school, public house, village hall and two churches. More comprehensive amenities can be found at the towns of Chard (4 miles) and Crewkerne (6 miles) and the latter also has a Waitrose store which offers online delivery.
The busy market town of Axminster is about 9 miles away, with its thriving community, comprehensive range of shops, leisure facilities and eateries, which include The Canteen and River Cottage Cookery School, both owned by TV chef and good food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
There are main line rail links to London Waterloo from Crewkerne and London Paddington from Taunton, as well as good road links via the A35 to the beautiful East Devon/West Dorset coastline and to London and the South East via the A303. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is located about 13 miles to the south and is a popular destination for tourists looking to enjoy the dramatic scenery and beautiful country and coastal walks. There are numerous footpaths and lanes close to the cottage, enabling beautiful walks straight from the cottage door.
Undoubtedly one of Chalkway Cottage's main features are its beautiful gardens which are surrounded by the estate land and create a most tranquil setting, perfect for those with a love of flora and fauna. A 5-bar gate leads from the lane to a gravelled parking area, adjacent to which are two garages. The gardens surround the property and have been planted with a great variety of colourful plants and shrubs which create a lovely natural setting. There are good sized areas of lawn which are bounded on one side by a small stream. There is also the former privy, and the grounds are surrounded by mature woodland which provides a great deal of shelter, both for the cottage and the rich variety of bird and wildlife which make it their home.
