IDYLLIC PROPERTY WONDERFUL VALLEY LOCATION LESS THAN 3/4 MILE WALK FROM THE BEACH This comfortable character detached house stands in its own 3 acres of garden and woodland in a most wonderful valley location designated an area of special scientific interest with direct access to the breathtaking cliffs and waterfall of Spekes Mill Mouth that overlooks a secluded sand and rocky beach enjoyed by both reef surfers and amateur prawn crab and lobster fishermen. Garden lovers will be interested to know that the award-winning Docton Mill gardens are adjacent to the property and in season are well worth a visit as well as for the mouth-watering cream teas. Wooda's own grounds offer a wealth of interest and excitement for all ages and include bluebell woods with tracks pathways and bridges.
Both adults and children alike enjoy the large log seating area around a campfire gazing at the stars and enjoying a sausage on a stick. The grounds lead down to an unfenced stream (children beware) where wild brown trout can be caught. There is also a mill pond 200 yards from the house that fills in rainy weather and is also unfenced.
The garden to the rear of the property has steps that lead to sloping lawns and to the side of the house there is a new spectacular decked area looking out over the lower lawns and valley which are a blanket of daffodils bluebells and other wild flowers in Spring. There is a patio area at the rear of the house with access to a small room and adjacent transformed garage that houses table football darts and an air hockey game. There is also a small fridge hi-fi and sofa for the young to get away where parents can visit by invitation only.
