Property Description

Set amidst the picturesque landscape of the Blackdown Hills, and just 1.5 miles from the village of Hemyock, this exquisite country cottage is a haven surrounded by serene countryside. Offering an unrivalled lifestyle opportunity, this three bedroom detached cottage has delightful gardens spanning 0.24 acres, complete with a studio/workshop.
There has been historical planning permission granted for the addition of a fourth bedroom ( now lapsed).
Additionally, a separate 0.38-acre paddock with extra parking lies just meters from the property. Immaculately maintained and thoughtfully designed, the interior exudes charm with its well-planned living spaces.
Notably, despite its thatched roof (the front thatch and all ridges were replaced in 2023), Ashculme Cottage is not listed, providing a blend of historic allure and modern comfort.

The minute we saw Ashculme Cottage we fell in love with its classic chocolate box cottage look and as soon as we stepped through the door we immediately felt a sense of warmth.
What we love most about the cottage is the peace and tranquillity coupled with the fact we are so close to the M5 and other amenities and yet we couldn’t feel farther away!
We love listening to the stream from the open bedroom window during summer mornings, observing the deer make their way across the neighbouring field, enjoying the garden bursting into bloom during all seasons with classic cottage plants and flowers and sitting outside in the warm evenings watching the buzzard’s circling overhead.
All this and then we retire inside to a cosy log fire and feel the cottage wrap itself around us like a warm welcome hug.
If it wasn’t for the fact that we are moving to Provence for the next chapter in our lives we would never leave.
I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
Ashculme Cottage offers beautifully maintained accommodation that enhances the character and ambiance throughout. Mandarin stone floors in the entrance hall continue through to the spacious kitchen/dining room, with extensive range of country style units set under quartz worktops with range of integrated appliances with a window overlooking the rear gardens.
The light and airy dining area makes the most of the views over the garden with oak stable door providing easy access. Off the kitchen is a small but useful utility area and a large downstairs shower room has been refurbished and also has the Mandarin stone floor and large shower enclosure.
The sitting room has plenty of character and charm with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace with wood burner. A front porch has been adapted to be used as a small office area with stable door onto the front gardens.
Directly accessed from the sitting room can be found a delightful room with double doors opening onto the gardens. Although currently used as a music room it could be used for a variety of uses.
All three bedrooms are doubles and each room has its own charm and character. The principle bedroom has a twin aspect over the rear gardens and fields and enjoys the sound of the stream.
There is a stylish re-fitted bathroom with roll top bath with views across to fields.
The best of outdoor living can be enjoyed in the beautiful cottage gardens that extend to 0.24 acre, bounded by a stream to the left hand side and surrounded by countryside, the garden is a haven for wildlife with areas of lawn with pathways alongside the stream, a wild meadow area, vegetable plot, decorative arches and variety of trees and shrubs. There is a useful two storey workshop/studio with power and lighting and double doors to rear. There is also a recently installed timber garden shed and a beautiful greenhouse (which may be available by separate negotiation).
Whilst there is parking at the property (see notes) a few yards down the lane is an additional plot of land of approximately 0.62 acre. With large parking area and gate onto a small enclosed paddock.
