Property description

A coastal estate in miniature incorporating three charming detached period cottages set in secluded grounds of 1 acre directly overlooking Combe Martin Bay Total 5 Bedrooms. EPC Bands E/F/D.


Situation and amenities


The views are the wow factor of these unique properties, which nestle close to the beach in Combe Martin, at the heart of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is literally on the borders of Berrynarbor and Combe Martin, and close by is a footpath which leads directly onto Newberry Beach which provides excellent rock pool fishing for inquisitive children. Newberry Beach is adjacent to Combe Martin Beach which is larger and sandier. Dogs are permitted on Newberry Beach, but not on the adjacent Combe Martin Beach. One of the main attractions of this small estate is not having to walk along or across any main roads to get to the beach. Also close by, there is direct access to the South West Coast Path which provides walks with unrivalled views of some of the most breathtaking scenery in the UK. There are fabulous views, particularly from Ancient Cottage over Combe Martin Bay and towards Lester Point and Hangmans Hill. Combe Martin village is within easy walking distance and in addition to its hilly coastline and sheltered beach, offers a variety of shops catering for day to day needs. The property is within 20 minutes drive of many centres including the coastal town of Ilfracombe, about 5 miles, the regional centre of Barnstaple is a little further, with excellent shopping facilities including many of the well known High Street stores, and out of town superstores. At Barnstaple, the North Devon Link Road provides access Junction 27 of the M5, where Tiverton Parkway also can provide access to London (Paddington in just over 2 hours). The surrounding countryside and coastline provide excellent recreational facilities with lovely wide open safe and sandy surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton and Woolacombe. The Exmoor National Park is also nearby and provides endless bridleways and footpaths for those who wish ride and walk and appreciate the dramatic rugged coastline and countryside.

Description


Saltdene is the collective name for the 3 properties on site, which are individually known as Ancient Cottage, Careys and Love. This is rare opportunity for a lifestyle change, to acquire adaptable accommodation which offers a number of permutations for ongoing use. At present, the property is run as three self-catering holiday cottages, but also utilised by the family who own them as holiday homes as and when they want to put personal enjoyment over income. Alternatively, one could live in the main dwelling and operate the other two as ancillary accommodation for dependent relatives or paying guests on a home and income basis. The cottages produce a healthy income, more details of which can be obtained from the selling agents. The accommodation layout and approximate dimensions are more clearly shown on the accompanying floorplans, but comprise as follows:

The physical boundaries on site differ from the area of land that is to be sold with Saltdene. Purchasers are advised to study the land plan, which is produced in good faith and for identification purposes only, which is on the back of the insert letter which accompanies the glossy brochure, as this more clearly represents what is to be sold.
