The original part of Orchard Cottage is thought to date from the late 1800's and in recent times the property has been extended, comprehensively refurbished and updated to provide a lovely family home. Built with rendered elevations set beneath a slate roof, the accommodation particularly adaptable and presented in superb order. All the principal rooms enjoy a light and open outlook with some very pleasant views across the garden, grounds and surrounding countryside. An entrance hallway gives access to a TV snug, with stairs to the first floor, and thence to a comfortable sitting room, with study off, and stunning triple aspect kitchen/family room and utility. There are two good double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower, to the ground floor and a 'Jack and Jill' shower room that links back to the study/fifth bedroom. To the first floor are two generous double bedrooms, both with lovely views, and a family bathroom. Oil fired central heating is installed, supplemented by a log burner in the sitting room, and double glazing is fitted throughout. The gardens and grounds are largely informal and mainly laid to grass with established hedging to the boundaries, Spring flowers and fruit trees, together with a timber summerhouse enjoying far reaching views. A private driveway, shared with the only neighbour, gives access to a large tarmac parking area and in addition there is a single garage. The whole area extends to an estimated 1.2 Acres.
Orchard Cottage occupies an elevated position at the end of a private driveway, shared with just one neighbour, and enjoys open views in all directions.

Axminster is some 6 miles to the South with a main line rail station (London Waterloo) and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is a further 6 miles distant at Lyme Regis.
