Thatched farmhouse with sunny garden and games room
Thatched Redgate Farm, Shute dates back to the 17th century, although today this Grade II listed building is beautifully modernised and refurbished. Warm pine floors, exposed beams and a cosy woodburner in the inglenook fireplace make the sitting room a welcoming space. The fully equipped kitchen adjoins a conservatory/breakfast room. There's a second sitting room with woodburner, games barn, huge dining room with flagged floor and six bedrooms – a six-foot double with ensuite, two double bedrooms with zip-and-link twin beds, two single rooms and a twin.
The sunny patio beckons with its dining table and views of the garden and rolling countryside vistas. Kids will love the freedom to play ball games and roam free.
Redgate Farm, Shute is surrounded by six acres of sunny south facing gardens with pond and far-reaching rural views. Honiton (famous for its lacemaking) is seven miles away and Axminster is four miles distance for shopping, pubs and restaurants including the award-winning River Cottage Cafe. The National Trust Shute Barton manor and gardens is nearby. The area is ideal for those who enjoy country walks with the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Blackdown Hills on the doorstep and Seaton Beach six miles away. The bustling town of Sidmouth has shops and cafes and while the postcard-pretty village of Beer is delightful.
