Home Farm Cottage occupies an idyllic countryside location in the hamlet of Philham which is not far from the popular coastal village of Hartland.
This house has been dramatically improved by the current owners and currently serves as a popular and impressive holiday let. The house offers plentiful accommodation across 2 floors with 4 double Bedrooms upstairs served by 2 Bathrooms and a Shower Room. The Ground Floor offers a variety of living spaces with 3 Reception Rooms and an extensive Kitchen / Breakfast Room that opens to the rear garden. The quality of the finish throughout the property is universally impressive.
To the rear of the property is a wonderful garden being mainly lawned and arranged over 2 levels. There are paved and decked seating areas providing space to sit out and enjoy the rural surroundings. The house has driveway parking to either side and there is a large Garage which has been converted into 2 useful Storage Sheds.
We have created an accompanying video tour which we would highly recommend watching to better appreciate the house and its unique location.
