The village has a thriving community spirit centred around the village hall with a children's play area, cricket pitch and tennis court, and offers a range of amenities including a church, a thriving community-owned public house and a popular primary school, Ofsted rated 'outstanding'. Other schools in the area include Holyrood Academy (Ofted-rated outstanding), Chard, Queen's College and Wellington.
The nearby lively market town of Honiton offers a range of High Street and independent shopping, cafés, supermarkets, restaurants and public houses, together with easy access to East Devon's beaches and leisure activities. The town's mainline station offers a direct rail link to London Waterloo and is minutes from the A30/A303, giving access to the M5 and the national motorway network.
Garden Cottage is separated from the lane by a pretty cottage garden with a low-level stone wall and a path to the front door. A side driveway provides off-road parking and access to the rear garden.
The property's very picturesque south-facing rear gardens provide an area of level lawn with a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
