Just ten miles north of Lyme Regis, the 'Pearl of Dorset', situated in gentle Somerset countryside is The Apple Press, a fabulously converted single storey farm building.
The open plan living space is perfect for socialising and spending quality time together. Open up the patio doors and enjoy the peace of the countryside that envelops this property. There is great character throughout, with restored A-frame beams and a pretty brick and flint exterior. Chefs will delight in the modern kitchen that is well-equipped.
You won't have to wander far for your morning coffee in the sunshine as the main bedroom has French doors leading straight out to the patio. The en suite shower-room is cleverly tucked away and has a luxurious rainfall shower head. Two further delightful bedrooms share a modern family bathroom.
Please note that some of the furniture is being updated and renewed for 2022, ensuring your stay is super-comfortable.
Whilst The Apple Press is totally separate and private, it is possible to integrate this lovely accommodation with the other properties at Wreath Farm. Adjoined to The Apple Press, is The Cow Shed (available for booking soon), accommodating four guests and across the farmyard there is another barn conversion, The Stables (4446), also accommodating four guests. The owners live in the farmhouse and are on hand if you need them but all cottages have a good degree of privacy from each other.
Your four-legged friend will delight in the fully enclosed garden and it is a gorgeous spot to sit out and enjoy al fresco dining. Fantastic holiday memories can be made here and you will totally feel as though you've escaped the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The lane leading to the farmstead is very quiet with just a few other properties dotted along it and is lovely to stroll along. Another peaceful walk just half a mile away is the Chard Nature Reserve and in the other direction at Cricket St Thomas where there are beautiful lakeside walks around the old manor house, which is now a hotel. You are also on the doorstep of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which runs along the Devon/Somerset border.
Following the coast to the west through east Devon from Lyme Regis you will enjoy a chain of little fishing villages and seaside towns, from Beer and Branscombe to Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton. Each has its own delightful character and tradition. For more dramatic coastal scenery, head to West Bay and see the infamous golden cliffs.
Within easy reach of Chard are four south Somerset National Trust properties to visit - Montacute, Tintinhull, Lytes Cary and Barrington Court. Forde Abbey is also only a few minutes away over the border in Dorset and offers a beautiful setting on the River Axe and some stunning gardens. Many famous walking trails converge around the villages to the south of Wreath, including the Jubilee Trail, Monarch's Way, the Wessex Ridgeway, the Liberty Trail and the South West Coast Path.
