Claverham Cottage is situated on Streamcross, at the heart of the old village of Claverham. Claverham is situated on the north-eastern side of Yatton, south-west of Cleeve and Backwell. Within walking distance of the house is the well-regarded Court de Wyck Primary School as well as a local village hall, with a bar and several classes and event space. Along Bishops Road towards Cleeve there is also a newsagent and a takeaway, whilst towards Yatton there are several more shops and amenities, a well-regarded village cricket club, whilst at Cadbury House there is a gym, restaurant and event space just on the southern side of Claverham. Claverham and the surrounding villages thrive in popularity due mostly to the balance they strike between country life and accessibility to the city and the motorway. The journey into the centre of Bristol should usually take under half an hour and within less time residents can be in the most scenic and arid parts of the Mendips or on the coast at Clevedon or Portishead. For families, the proximity of Backwell School is a real positive, whilst for commuters, Nailsea & Backwell and Yatton Train Stations also offer another quick route into Bristol or direct to London.
This is a freehold property with a ground rent of £15 per year.
Our Seller Says….
‘We instantly fell in love with the cottage and gardens when we first visited ourselves and always have lots of compliments when friends and families come over to visit, have a party or just an impromptu get together of an evening or weekend. Plenty of space for cars, bikes and a gym if you wish!
The garden has lots of established plants with an abundance of fruit produced each year. We grow vegetables both indoors and outdoors as the soil is beautiful for a more rewarding and sustainable lifestyle.
Claverham Cottage has been a lovely home for our multi-generational household. Providing lots of space in the large rooms inside the home, outbuildings and gardens which are ideal for getting out in the sunshine and finding that lovely home-work balance we've strived for.
We love how rural it feels, peaceful and quiet but the ability to easily get to the train station or airport which are both a quick drive away which have been perfect for trips abroad for winter sun or even 45mins to Edinburgh!
Perfect for peaceful walks and rides around the local area including Claverham Drove and the flat roads up to Kenn or if you like to walk in the wooded area in Goblin Coombe. Easy access to travel for work or the local seaside at Clevedon, Portishead and even Weston-Super-Mare.’
