A superbly presented attached farmhouse with a huge amount of character and well-proportioned rooms.

The Property.
Blamphayne Cottage is a handsome attached former farmhouse which is of traditional construction with predominantly stone elevations under a slated roof. It has origins dating back several centuries and retains a wealth of character features such as flagstone floors, window seats and magnificent inglenook fireplace with wood burner in the sitting room.

The property has recently undergone and significant and sympathetic programme of renovation and refurbishment and is found in excellent order with a modern approach to the decoration which harmonises beautifully with the period features and well-proportioned rooms. Worthy of particular mention is the stunning farmhouse kitchen which has been extensively fitted with bespoke timber units and has an oak floor and exposed stone wall.

To the front of the cottage there is an attractive lawned garden with a paved terrace taking advantage of the delightful rural views. There is parking to the side and Blamphayne Cottage the property also benefits from further parking to the rear in the cobble former farmyard where there is a small outbuilding and log store.

Blamphayne Cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Blamphayne which in turn nestles amongst some of East Devon’s most picturesque rolling countryside close to the village of Northleigh. The property sits in an elevated location, thus gaining delightful easterly views over the valley.

The property is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is within a few miles of the highly desirable town of Colyton. Colyton, with its beautiful medieval church, offers a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational amenities, and the renowned Colyton Grammar School is situated about a mile away on the outskirts of the country village of Colyford.

The market town of Honiton lies approximately 4 miles to the north and has an extensive range of independent shops and facilities, and a main line rail link to London Waterloo. Some 6 miles to the south is the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay. Exeter, the Cathedral City and County Town, is some 24 miles distant with an excellent shopping centre, theatres, main line express rail link to London Paddington, M5 access and small international airport.

From Honiton High Street turn onto New Street and proceed to the top of the hill, turning left at the mini roundabout. Turn almost immediately right signposted Seaton. Climb the hill and continue past the Golf Course and take the third turning on the left (after about 2 miles) signposted Blamphayne. Take the first right (after about 150 yards) and proceed down the steep hill. Blamphayne Cottage will be found mid-way down the valley on the left hand side.
