A handsome detached period farmhouse with two holiday cottages and a camping/caravan site set in a tranquil hidden valley close to Lyme Regis and the coast. A range of flexible outbuildings and pretty pastureland.

This period farmhouse dates back to the 19th century and is constructed of local stone with mellow brickwork under a slate roof. Built on the site of an earlier manor house the property epitomizes the style of the era, featuring classically proportioned rooms with high ceilings, creating a feeling of elegance. Internally the wealth of architectural features includes flagstone floors, original fireplaces, period joinery and sash windows with internal shutters. At the heart of the home is the spacious open plan kitchen/ breakfast room with a Rayburn and larder.

The versatile outbuildings with secure storage offer further opportunities for work or leisure.

Cannington Farm is set in a sheltered location close to Uplyme surrounded by unspoilt countryside in the East Devon AONB. A tributary of the River Lym runs through this secluded valley and there is evidence of human habitation stretching back to the Iron Age with the later remains of a Roman villa close by. The imposing Cannington Viaduct of the now abandoned Bluebell Line provides a striking landmark just beyond the property. Uplyme has a thriving community with excellent facilities including a post office and general stores, a pub, village hall, tennis and cricket club. The popular Dorset resort of Lyme Regis is within 2 miles, yet the property is tucked away and secluded from the bustle of holiday traffic. This picturesque coastal town with the historic Cobb harbour and sandy beach, offers a range of cafes, restaurants, independent shops and a theatre. As part of the UNESCO Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, there are opportunities for a variety of recreational activities including walking, fishing and swimming. The nearby bustling market town of Axminster offers all the amenities one would expect, and a mainline train station. The Cathedral city of Exeter is easily accessible with an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities, access to the M5 and Exeter International Airport.
