The cottage is believed to date in part from the mid-18th century and has an abundance of period features including an inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and period bannisters. Wellow Cottage offers well-presented and flexible accommodation with fine views and has been recently extended to create a large kitchen diner with a sperate east facing conservatory. It offers excellent living space and with minor alterations could provide self-contained ‘Granny’ accommodation on the ground floor, should it be required. The current owners had a substantial double garage complex with loft over and a power door built; furthermore, there is an extremely well equipped adjoining workshop to the side, which is perfect for woodworking or general home craft hobbies.
The interesting old brick-built outbuilding (which was in part, a former pig sty) has been used by a past owner, an architect, as a drawing office, but would be suitable as a self-contained annex cottage (subject to planning) if a new owner was seeking an income or perhaps just additional family accommodation. The grounds are a particular attraction and are overlooked by the principal rooms with good rural views across the farm to the south.
Wellow is a sought after and quiet small village around 5 minutes driving distance of the harbour town of Yarmouth, where there is a variety of shops, excellent sailing facilities and mainland ferry terminal. Nearby Shalfleet offers the unspoilt Quay, part of the Newtown Nature Reserve, and footpaths close to the cottage give access to miles of unspoilt countryside. In Shalfleet there is a shop, pub, church, and well-regarded village school.

Outside

The gardens that surround the property are certainly one of its features. The large grounds incorporate a gravelled approach with a wooden farm gate to a large, gravelled turning circle, with parking for several cars. A detached former coach house constructed of brick under a slate roof is presently used as the GARAGE 16’6 x 16’6 with side door to garden, and separate Office area 13’4 x 6’9, with two Velux windows. Wooden doors give access to the parking bay, with ample storage on the exposed roof timbers, accessed via wooden stairs.
A recently constructed double garage building with additional workshop has power and an excellent amount of space for those with car hobbies etc.
The gardens are enclosed by fencing and mature shrubs and mainly laid to lawn, with a range of mature trees and bushes. A gently flowing stream (only part visible) runs through the middle of the garden in the winter months and nearby is a stone lined well.
To the rear of the property and below the garden area, is a small, paved patio area.

Notes

There was a historic, now lapsed, planning consent dating from August 2012 to convert the coach house into a self-contained unit for the use of the main dwelling. This would comprise a living dining area with adjacent kitchen and WC/shower on the ground floor and a galleried sleeping area on the first floor having space for two beds.
