A beautifully characterful and romantic grade II listed detached house with Cider and Coaching barns set in private gardens of c 0.65 acres.


Woodmans Stoup is a substantial and beautiful detached farmhouse nestled amidst 0.65 acres of mature south facing private gardens. Beautifully restored combining contemporary style with period features.

The property is situated in the centre of Colyford village which benefits from an active community with a range of facilities including two village inns, restaurant, post office, general store/butchers, specialist cycle hire shop and cafe, church and village hall.

Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top state secondary schools is also situated in the village.

The village is situated midway between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth and lies about 1.5 miles inland and is close to a number of beautiful beaches along the stunning Jurassic coast, England's first World Heritage Site. You can reach the coast via the Seaton Wetlands by foot or bicycle or travel via an historic tramway which operates along the banks of the river Axe providing scenic connection between Colyton, Colyford and Seaton. The coastal villages of Beer and Branscombe are also within 15 mins drive of the property.


The accommodation is as generous as it is versatile with period features throughout including flagstone floors, batten plank doors, curved reveals and exposed beams. The formal entrance hall lies between Family and Sitting Rooms, the former continuing through to a Study whilst the latter is centred around an impressive dressed stone inglenook fireplace with open hearth. The Dining Room has doors to courtyard and garden, whilst linking to the Kitchen, fitted in farmhouse style with a combination of solid wood and granite surfaces and a gas fired AGA. The Utility Room and downstairs bathroom lie to the rear of the Kitchen. The rear hallway links a second staircase and a ground floor 4th Bedroom.

On the first floor there are three further bedroom suites, one with a dressing room and ensuite bathroom, the other two suites with dressing rooms. There is also a family bathroom.


Set behind a tall stonewall, the gravel and paved driveway provides extensive off-street parking for five cars. The gardens are beautifully mature and private with sweeping level lawns punctuated by pathways and period stone walling with mature trees and shrubs providing an attractive leafy backdrop. To the rear of the property there is a formal garden linking onto a seperate vegetable garden and orchard, on one side there a large level lawn currently used for football or tennis, to the other side there is the cottage garden. Nestled between the house and attached games room is a sheltered south facing courtyard, perfect for al fresco dining.


Alongside the courtyard attached to the house is a beautiful barn offering garaging and/or party/games room opportunities. Permission to convert the Linhay Barn to a two bed holiday cottage was granted on 5th July 2011 under ref: 11/0303/FUL but has subsequently lapsed.


In the South East corner of the grounds is a stone built cider barn housing a fascinating original horse driven cider press.
