Property Description


Pax Cottage is situated in the quiet village of Ryall, which is located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just two miles inland from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. This delightful village lies approximately 4.7 miles west of Bridport and 6.1 miles east of Lyme Regis on the eastern side of Hardown Hill, a National Trust site offering stunning views that take in Chesil Beach, Portland, Lyme, the Devon coastline and the hillforts of Lambert Castle, Coney’s Castle and Pilsdon Pen. Although Ryall offers seclusion it is by no means isolated with the neighbouring villages of Chideock (1.8 miles east), Charmouth (3.2 miles west) and Morcombelake (1 mile south) all easily accessible. Nearby Morcomblelake includes a shop/post office and a large farm shop. The market town of Axminster lies eight miles west with a main line rail service to London while the coastal village of Charmouth has a primary school and Blue Flag beaches.


Over 200 years-old, this characterful and beautifully presented three bedroom detached cottage, situated on a plot of approximately 1.246 acres, offers an elevated position overlooking the breathtaking Marshwood Vale.

Two of the bedrooms also enjoy en-suite facilities. The fabulous grounds include a delightful south-facing garden at the front of the property and elevated equestrian land including a field shelter with open tack room, a further mobile shelter, and turn out areas. The elevated land has its own gated access where there is scope to add garaging subject to planning consent. There is also a driveway offering off-road parking for 2-3 vehicles at the rear of the property along with a single garage and two small further outbuildings for storage. EPC rating F.
