A SPACIOUS CHARACTER PROPERTY IN A DELIGHTFUL COUNTRY SETTING WITH SUPERB VIEWS

Manscombe is an attached character house in a lovely rural location with far reaching views across unspoilt West Dorset countryside to the sea at Lyme Regis.

The property offers good sized character accommodation and, whilst it has modern amenities it would now benefit from some refurbishment.

Adjacent to the house is a secluded cottage garden and a stone and tiled barn. On the far side of the lane is the old orchard/vegetable garden, garage and car port.

There are many country walks in the surrounding area. Above the property is Hardown Hill and to the south is Golden Cap and St. Gabriel's (National Trust) - much of this is the Golden Cap Estate which is part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site with spectacular scenery.

Morcombelake village is just a short walks away and there is a post office/stores, church and a highly regarded farm shop.

The picturesque coastal village of Charmouth, which offers a good range of facilities and excellent beaches is about 2 miles away. Lyme Regis is approximately 5 miles to the west and Bridport a similar distance to the east.
