The property is situated in the small hamlet of Haddon, with good access to footpaths and bridleways. Bampton, Dulverton and Wiveliscombe are all within a short distance and provide day to day shopping together with schools, churches, post offices, and doctors, as well as good public houses.

Pips Cottage is well placed to take advantage of the walking and riding in the valleys and open expanses of the area, with Wimbleball Lake and Haddon Hill close by.

This attractive cottage dates back to 1850 and is rendered under a slate roof, with many character features including feature fireplaces, exposed lintels and latch doors. The cottage has been refurbished and extended but retains its character and charm while now offering bright and beautifully presented accommodation. The excellent location with the stables, paddocks and access to wonderful riding country make the property ideal for someone with an interest in equestrian pursuits.

Access is gained through the enclosed front porch with original oak front door. The dining room has a brick fireplace with oak mantle over and cupboards. The sitting room is a cosy room with a feature stone fireplace, with beam over and inset with a wood burner. The kitchen is well fitted with units, wood worktops, an Aga, wood floor, space for a table, and glazed doors leading to the paved and gravelled courtyard area. The spacious inner hall leads to the utility/boot room with cloakroom off and door to the outside.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with roll top bath with claw and ball feet and shower over.

Approached through a five-bar gate, the drive leads to a large timber framed garage with a room above, suitable for use as an office/studio. The parking area with its surrounding stone walls leads to the front porch via a pathway. The pretty cottage style gardens are planted with shrubs, plants and trees and surround three sides of the property with pathways and steps, a seating area and a log store.

A pathway from the garden leads to the stables and yard, comprising two separate timber stable blocks with four stables, a feed room, a tack room and workshop all with power and water connected. There is also a kennel and timber shed. Adjoining the yard is the smaller paddock with post and rail fencing and a gate leading into the larger paddock with field shelter, and water trough. There is also a round lunge pen. There is a track leading to a further roadside paddock.
