Yenworthy Cottage, Countisbury

Yenworthy Cottage is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. There are rare species of butterflies and trees, large areas of heather moorland and impressive cliff geology.

Entrance to the property is via the large porch into the hallway, both providing plenty of space for wellies and walking boots! The sitting/dining room has two comfortable sofas, wood-burner and dining table with six chairs. The kitchen is on the opposite side of the hall and has recently been fitted with all new appliances and has a smaller dining table with four chairs and extra stools. The back door from the kitchen leads down some steps to an enclosed courtyard, an ideal spot to let the dogs dry off or cool down, depending on the season. There is also a pretty garden to the side and front with outside seating. The stairway from the entrance hall leads up to the two twin bedrooms on the first floor. The family bathroom is also on the first floor and is comprised of a bath, toilet and hand basin. Up a narrow staircase to the second floor is the master bedroom with King-sized bed and en-suite with of shower (no bath), toilet and hand basin.
