The property

A mile from the centre of Lewdown is this 'chocolate box' pretty, detached and thatched little cottage on the 750 acre Lewtrenchard estate.

The cottage nestles behind a high hedge down a tranquil no-through lane in the wooded Lewtrenchard valley.

It overlooks its lovely garden (bench, table/chairs) and the valley of the River Lew which is close by.

The renowned Lewtrenchard Manor Hotel (fine restaurant) is within easy walking distance. Little entrance porch into beamed living room (open fire, small TV/DVD), with dining room leading off.

Kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker).

Bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Upstairs, two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) accessed through a twin door from each bedroom to loo with sloping ceiling.

Some low beams and lintels.

Shed for bicycle storage.
