Property Description

Additional Information

A move to the country has become ever more popular over the last two years with home movers pining for a change of lifestyle and a slowdown in pace. Holidays within the glorious Devon countryside have also been very popular, none more so than now. Lilypond cottages is a fantastic opportunity to make the best of both worlds, helping others whilst earning an income. Nestled at the end of a private lane and set in 0.91 acres of grounds, Lilypond cottages is a former barn of the adjoining Smytham Manor. Lilypond is divided into three separate dwellings, one managers cottage and two holiday let cottages all individually named from creatures synonymous to North Devon. Mallards is the owners / managers cottage, exuding character internally with its stone built feature fireplace and log burning stove, fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is existing planning permission granted for a ground floor extension to add another bedroom and bathroom in place should the new owners require more space. Brambles Cottage is the first of the two holiday lets which can sleep up to six in its three bedrooms, it also comes with its own sun terrace overlooking the spring fed shire pond and gardens. Otters Cottage takes its name from Tarka the otter, the well-loved character from Henry Williamson's books. The cottage sleeps up to four people and again boast its own sun terrace overlooking the grounds. Lilypond Cottages provides ample parking at the front for the owners and visitors alike where adjacent to this the current owners have provided a lovely recreational space for children incorporating a seesaw and swing.

There is lots to do for your guests both regionally and locally to help attract booking year round. Within just a few miles you have the Plough arts centre / theatre, Dartington Crystal and The Royal Horticultural society gardens "Rosemoor". Within half a mile you can find yourself on the Tarka trail, a footpath/cycle way mainly built on the bed of a disused railway where all the gradients are gentle. It winds its way through some stunning woodland along the course of the River Torridge past Beam Weir, where Henry Williamson?s Tarka the Otter was born, from which the trail gains its name. It continues past Bideford and along the coast to Barnstaple where it splits and one leg turns inland again following the portion of the railway which is still in use the other continues on the bed of the disused railway and onto Ilfracombe. Both Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks are within an hour?s drive away. The closest coastline is only a 12 mile drive and is very popular with surfers and body borders alike.

All in all this is a fantastic opportunity for your dream move to the country allowing you to enjoy everything our wonderful County has to offer whilst earning a living.
