Sunvale description

This superb large stone house has been built in a most peaceful rural setting, away from all roads, in one-third of an acre of garden and about 7 miles inland from the east Devon coast. The two nearest resorts are Lyme Regis and Charmouth, both with sandy beaches and holiday entertainments. Chard and Axminster lie about 5 miles distant with shops and railway station
Famous for its fine carpets, Axminster stills produces them today, with the original factory being found near the church. There are good examples of Georgian houses to be seen here, and for those interested in architecture, the National Trust property of Shute Barton close by survives as one of the most important non-fortified manor houses of the Middle Ages. A mixture of Gothic windows, battlemented turrets and Tudor gatehouse mingle together, reflecting the fact that it parts of it were built during two different centuries. Another interesting property to visit is the Old Bakery, together with the manor mill and forge at Branscome, set in one of Devon’s prettiest cob-and-thatch villages. Operational until 1987, it was the oldest traditional working bakery in Devon, and now serves as a tearoom, with the bakery equipment on display to the public. The lace-making and pottery town of Honiton lies within easy reach and has a selection of interesting shops and an annual fair held in July, whilst a little further afield is Yeovil, well known for its glove-making industry spanning 350 years. Riding and golf in the area.
Lyme Regis is easily reached and the colourwashed cottages and elegant Regency and Victorian villas which line the seafront make this very photogenic town. Attractions for all the family include a museum of local history and geology, Dinosaurland and a marine aquarium. Seaton is within easy driving distance, and boasts a steep pebbly beach as well as an open-top tramway. Garage/shop 4 miles.Ground floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen. 1 single bedroom.
