The Property.
Marven Court is a particularly handsome country house which was built, we believe, as a gentleman's residence around the turn of the last century. It was converted and extended into 7 apartments some years ago, with number 6 forming part of the second floor, being accessed via a communal stairwell to the rear of the main house.

The accommodation is well-presented and neutral in decoration and all the rooms take advantage of some superb views over the rooftops and the Lym Valley to the countryside, with glimpses of the sea beyond. The main reception room has a double aspect, making it particularly light and this is open to a modern fitted kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, the principal of which also has a double aspect and an en-suite bathroom.

Marven Court is approached over a long driveway which rises to a parking area adjacent to which is a garage block, one single of which belongs to number 6. The communal gardens principally lie to the front of the property and are in the main laid to lawn and interspersed with colourful shrub beds and mature trees. There is also an ornamental pond and the gardens take advantage of some delightful views over the village to the countryside beyond.

Marven Court is located just on the outskirts of the popular village of Uplyme which has a range of everyday amenities including a shop, primary school, church, public house, garage and post office, as well as a tennis club and cricket pitch.

The town of Lyme Regis lies just over a mile away and there is a delightful and picturesque walk from Uplyme alongside the river Lym to the heart of the town. There are some superb country and coastal walks in the near vicinity which include the South-West Peninsular Coastal Path which stretches right along the Dorset and Devon coastline and from which the dramatic and beautiful scenery can be enjoyed. Lyme Regis has an extensive range of independent shops and boutiques and is famous for its historical harbour and Cobb. There are also many recreational and sporting facilities which include a sailing club, bowls, sea fishing and also a well-respected golf course which sits on the top of the cliff. The busy market town of Axminster lies approximately 4 miles to the north-west and also has an excellent variety of shops which include Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen shop and café, and mainline rail link to London Waterloo. There are some excellent schools close at hand and Marven Court is within the catchment area of the 'outstanding' Woodroffe School, and Colyton Grammar, one of the country's top mixed state schools is some 7 miles away. The nearby A35 gives fast access to Exeter which has an international airport and Taunton with M5 motorway connections. The market town of Bridport, which has excellent shopping, sporting and leisure facilities lies approximately 11 miles to the east.

From Lyme Regis town, bear right at the top of Broad Street into Silver Street towards Uplyme. Follow this road past the Woodroffe School on the left and then the The Black Dog Tea Rooms on the right, taking the second right hand turning (signposted Rocombe) onto Tappers Knapp. Follow this lane for about 0.4 mile where the driveway to Marven Court will be found on your left hand side.
