Situation and amenities


Benton is a hamlet at the end of a no through country lane, on the rural outskirts of Bratton Fleming, which offers local shop, village school, public house, sport centre and garage. The village is on the fringe of Exmoor National Park, which offers many miles of beautiful walks and excellent riding. Barnstaple, the regional centre for North Devon is easily accessible and offers a diverse shopping experience, together with a broad range of amenities, further schooling, entertainments and a railway station providing regular services to Exeter, with connecting services beyond. The market town of South Molton is also within easy reach, to the east. Tiverton Parkway Station at Junction 27 of the M5 are both within about 40 minutes by car. The dramatic North Devon Coastline with its expansive sandy beaches at Saunton (also offering a championship golf course), Croyde and Woolacombe are also easily accessible, all between 15 and 20 miles away.

Description


The Old Stables and Stable Cottage comprises a pair of quality barn conversions, converted by the existing owners. The Old Stables was converted in 2003/2004, and Stable Cottage in 2007/2008. Stable Cottage is run as a 5 star rated holiday cottage, generating useful income, and listed with - reference hggq. Alternatively, Stable Cottage may offer potential for excellent in-law accommodation, subject to any necessary change of use. There is a further substantial former farm building, with consent to accommodate an indoor swimming pool / garaging, but offering potential for further developments, subject to planning permission.

The period barns have been skilfully converted to combine quality modern refinements with original period features, with extensive use of oak timbers. There are vaulted ceilings and exposed A frames. These properties can only be fully appreciated by an internal inspection. Both barns have their own private garden areas, and are served off a gravelled approach, with carriage sweep style drive, with plenty of off road parking and turning. The layout of the accommodation with approximate dimensions is more clearly identified on the accompanying floorplan, but comprises:
