  The Detail...

Wellhayes Barn sits next to the lake, and is surrounded by wildlife. During the nesting season, the call of wild duck, along with the splashes they make when coming into land on the water, is a regular reminder of how close to nature you are.

This lovely barn has been converted to an exceptionally high standard with two bedrooms and a contemporary interior that is sympathetic to the buildings history.

Enter the building via a heavy ledged and braced front door made from locally sourced timber. The door opens onto a kitchen, dining and living space that includes an oil fired Aga and boasts views over the lake to the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beyond. Exposed beams cross the ceiling of the room, making this an atmospheric room to be. The kitchen comes fully equipped and includes a larder fridge.

There are two bedrooms, and the large master bedroom even has its own wood burner and en-suite bathroom with free standing bath.

Outside is a lovely terrace thats ideal for soaking up sunshine, and theres garden furniture and even a BBQ for cooking outdoors.

This tranquil haven is just a few minutes drive from Lyme Regis and Bridport yet is surrounded by nature: wild duck nest on the pond whilst heron and cormorant try their luck with the fish. Deer can occasionally be seen in the woods from the first floor window, whilst foxes and badgers, though a little more timid, are often encountered on walks. Much of the timber used in the conversion has been upcycled from the original building.

In the area, why not visit the market town of Lyme Regis. The town lies in Lyme Bay, on the English Channel coast at the DorsetDevon border. It is nicknamed "The Pearl of Dorset." The town is noted for the fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, which are part of the Heritage Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast a World Heritage Site.
