Coachman's Cottage is a shining example of how a bijou country cottage can be transformed into a stylish rural home without detracting from the comfort and individual appeal of the historic property. Believed to have once been the coachman's residence and stables for the local manor, the original footprint has been extended to great effect under the current ownership; a project which, alongside a programme of improvements and modernisation, has created a superb family home with the needs of a busy modern lifestyle at heart. Located in an elevated position on a private road, stunning, far-reaching country views can be enjoyed to the front, and the rear garden has been landscaped to take advantage not only of the glorious vista but also of the tranquility of the position.

It is clear to see that the comprehensive internal alterations have created spacious, family-orientated rooms throughout with a sociable emphasis. This is particularly noticeable on the ground floor where a wonderful open plan kitchen/dining room and an expansive yet comfortable sitting room with bi-folding doors to the garden and a wood burner can both be found. Also on the ground floor is a generous ensuite bedroom, again with doors leading directly to outside, facilitating single storey living or providing useful accommodation for guests or family members seeking a degree of independence. Upstairs there are two well proportioned double bedrooms, the principal of which benefits from an ensuite shower room, and the family bathroom, and a separate staircase from the kitchen/dining room leads to a delightful third reception room which, owing to it's slightly removed position, is perfect for use as a second sitting room/snug, a fourth bedroom or a home office, to name but a few potential purposes. Domestically, there is a utility/laundry room adjoining the kitchen and a ground floor cloakroom.


Coachmans Cottage enjoys charming, landscaped gardens which are designed to be at one with the natural surroundings, whilst offering multiple excuses for spending time out of doors. Arranged into a series of tiers, full advantage is taken of the secluded, elevated aspect of the western part of the garden where a large sun deck is perfectly placed to enjoy the unbroken, far-reaching country views. To the front is a driveway offering parking for 2 vehicles, with an additional parking area opposite providing space for 4 more.


Woodhouse Fields is a private lane located in a wonderful rural position on the edge of the popular village of Uplyme and therefore within easy reach of Lyme Regis. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are glorious walks in the area, including through the Woodland Trust Pinetum adjoining the garden. Within the village there is a healthy range of amenities including a petrol station/shop, pub and an active village hall. Lyme Regis, with its historic Cobb and beautiful sea front, forms part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, and the town offers bespoke shopping, leisure and cultural experiences to suit a variety of interests.
