These two adjoining stone barn conversions are set within the small rural hamlet of Kentisburyford, just off the A39 Barnstaple to Lynton road, providing convenient access.
The properties are set in an area popular with tourists, being within some 3 to 10 miles of the various facilities available on the North Devon coastline, with beaches at Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe with associated leisure facilities, whilst to the north the dramatic cliffs around Lynton and Lynmouth and the Exmoor National Park are some 10-12 miles. To the south about 8 miles is Barnstaple, the ancient borough and administrative centre for North Devon from where there is access on to the A361/North Devon Link road which provides much improved communications to and from the North Devon area, connecting directly as it does through to Tiverton where a few miles to the east is access on to the M5 Motorway at Junction 27 where there is also the Parkway railway station.
Wheelwrights and Chaffcutters are two most attractive stone built barn conversions set within the small hamlet at Kentisburyford and with planning consent for 10 month Holiday Occupancy.
The properties have been let as holiday cottages for a number of years and are well located, being central for access to the coastline at Woolacombe and Lynton, together with the Exmoor National Park to the east and Barnstaple, the administrative centre for North Devon to the south.
Both properties have considerable charm and character with exposed beams, open fireplaces and have electric radiator central heating. Although currently limited to 10 months holiday occupancy it is likely that this could be extended to 12 months holiday occupancy by applying to North Devon Council.
Both properties are sold as equipped and with the benefit of any bookings for next season with monies paid by way of deposits being apportioned on completion.
The properties were both tastefully converted from stone farm buildings with a walled courtyard to the eastern side and garden areas to the western side where there is access to the level car parking for 4-6 cars and which runs down to a stream boundary.
