Hawkchurch, Devon, England
This superb large stone house has been built in a most peaceful
rural setting, away from all roads, in two-thirds of an acre of
garden and about 7 miles inland from the east Devon coast. The
two nearest resorts are Lyme Regis and Charmouth, both with sandy
beaches and holiday entertainments. Chard and Axminster lie about
5 miles distant with shops and railway station.
Famous for its fine carpets, Axminster stills produces them today,
with the original factory being found near the church. There are
good examples of Georgian houses to be seen here, and for those
interested in architecture, the National Trust property of Shute
Barton close by survives as one of the most important non-fortified
manor houses of the Middle Ages. A mixture of Gothic windows,
battlemented turrets and Tudor gatehouse mingle together, reflecting
the fact that it parts of it were built during two different centuries.
Another interesting property to visit is the Old Bakery, together
with the manor mill and forge at Branscome, set in one of Devon's
prettiest cob-and-thatch villages. Operational until 1987, it
was the oldest traditional working bakery in Devon, and now serves
as a tearoom, with the bakery equipment on display to the public.
The lace-making and pottery town of Honiton lies within easy reach
and has a selection of interesting shops and an annual fair held
in July, whilst a little further afield is Yeovil, well known
for its glove-making industry spanning 350 years. Riding and golf
in the area.
