A stunning Grade II listed Elizabethan former farmhouse in a delightful village on the Dorset-Somerset border, within 14 miles of Lyme Regis.
As the name suggests, Drakes Farm is thought to have been part of the estate of the 16th century mariner and explorer Sir Francis Drake. The house, which is mainly stone beneath a recently rethatched main roof, contains some magnificent period features, including cruck beams, flagstone floors and two inglenook fireplaces. In the last four years it has been carefully and sympathetically upgraded to create a charming fivebedroom family home with the best of modern living and all the original character. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside with mixed traditional farming, and lots of bridleways.
