£125,000 – price of ‘leafing’ Brexit behind!

Estate agency Symonds & Sampson says it has the perfect solution for anyone who can’t bear any more of the Brexit debate.

Many of us are overwhelmed by Brexit, we dream of being away from the madness and frustration, so consider this – the perfect hideaway for someone who wishes the politicians, the pundits and the public protesters would disappear down a foxhole.

Woolcombe Wood at Uplyme, Devon is up for sale with a guide price of £125,000. It offers almost 10 acres of mixed broad-leaved and coniferous woodland, lying between Yawl and St Mary’s Lane, just two miles from the coast at Lyme Regis – which is a wonderful place.

The fully-fitted timber chalet (18’ x 18’) on site ‘boasts’ a kitchen/living area, bedroom and wet room. It is eco-friendly with solar panels providing electricity, private spring water and composting loos.


The woodland is secluded and private with no rights of way crossing it, and also has the River Lym running through its lower reaches.

Your neighbours will be foxes, badgers and deer, but you will see people if you go into Axminster – there’s a bus stop just 0.1 mile away should you wish to access broadband and re-engaged with Brexit.

Estate agents Symonds & Sampson has just launched the woodland onto the open market saying, “This is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a true escape for modern life in a beautiful position.”

Tenders for the property close at noon on November 13th.

Who else has a quirky property on their books? Share them with us – but remember, we mean properly quirky. Or spooky for Halloween!
