    Voulwill Cottage represents a unique opportunity to acquire charming detached Devon home nestled within the hillside of a pretty hamlet known as Brendon, on the Exmoor National Park. This traditional character cottage occupies a pretty setting with woodland backdrop together with countryside views. Front and rear gardens adjoin the cottage with attractive stream border.

    Whilst benefitting from double glazing, central heating and a woodburning stove, the accommodation requires refurbishment and provides scope for enlargement, subject to any appropriate consents. The current vendor intended to enlarge the accommodation under permitted development rights, further information is available upon request. (prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries).

    Inside this traditional cottage is an entrance porch with WC off, sitting/dining room with inglenook style fireplace containing a woodburning stove. A separate living room, as part of a later extension enjoys an attractive view over the stream border and countryside beyond. Rear entrance hall and kitchen is also located on the ground floor. To the first floor are three double bedrooms with a small bathroom.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please refer to the enclosed floorplan.

The driveway leads to a pretty front garden with ornamental pond. To the rear of the cottage is a private garden space mainly lawned with a pretty stream border.


    The cottage lies equidistant between the heart of Brendon and Rockford each with its own public house and just half a mile distant. Set above Brendon, is St Brendan, Church of England.
