Full Property Details

Fir Tree Cottage is situated on a quiet lane on the edge of the very pretty and sought after Exmoor village of Withypool. The property lies just 8 miles north-west of Dulverton, a delightful country town known as the Gateway to Exmoor with good shopping facilities together with a post office, doctors, dental and veterinary surgeries, library, recreational facilities and schools. The village nestles around a lovely old stone bridge which crosses the River Barle and has a church, village hall, village store and post office, tea rooms and the renowned Royal Oak Inn. Close to open moorland and river valleys, the property is ideally placed to enjoy many country pursuits including walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing. To the south, at Tiverton, there is fast access via the A361 North Devon Link Road to the M5 Motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours).

A spacious, detached village house offering light, well proportioned accommodation with generous room sizes and some wonderful views over the moor. Entrance hall with deep understair cupboard and cloakroom. Triple aspect sitting room with a woodburning stove. Separate dining room (or study) to the front. The kitchen is well fitted with an extensive range of cream units with granite tops and Belfast sink, 2 oven AGA, space for dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Double doors lead through to the conservatory/ breakfast room. The utility room has space and plumbing for washing machine, sink and a stable door to outside. A staircase leads up to the landing with an airing cupboard. The principal bedroom is double aspect with fitted wardrobes and there are two further bedrooms, both served by the family bathroom with both a bath and separate shower.

Outside, the house is approached through wrought iron double gates to the driveway with ample parking to the front of the house. There is a three bay open fronted car port and a workshop with light and power connected. Behind the workshop is a timber log store. The gardens lie mostly to the rear of the house with a central paved patio with pergola over, shed and greenhouse. From the gate at the bottom of the garden, there is a right of way for Fir Tree Cottage to cross over the neighbouring land to the footpath which runs along the River Barle.
