Property description

Situated in the heart of the devon countryside is this fantastic opportunity for combination of home and income set within its own grounds of approximately 45 acres. This delightful four bedroom farmhouse has recently been refurbished and has the benefit of a further detached two bedroom cottage and three further holiday lets, which are extremely well appointed. There are a traditional range of modern agricultural buildings for machine and feed stores and the land is predominantly gently sloping pasture with an area of woodland which we believe have shooting rights and two established pens.

Location:
The property is surrounded by a wealth of beautiful open countryside and various local holiday attractions. There are beautiful walks and equestrian pursuits, especially in the nearby Cookworthy Forest, and are abundant throughout the county with coastal paths along the North Devon and Cornwall with numerous sandy beaches. The nearby village of Halwill Junction offers a traditional range of local amenities from Post Office and General Stores to a Public House, takeaway, recreational ground, a well established County Primary School and a regular bus service from the village to the nearby towns of Holsworthy, Launceston and Okehampton which offer a range of supermarkets, including Waitrose, secondary schooling, golf courses and leisure centres. Okehampton provides access onto Dartmoor and the Granite Way from where you can cycle and enjoy the surrounding countryside.

Situation:
Situated in a rural position the property is perfectly positioned to enjoy far reaching countryside views across to North Devon with Exmoor in the background and Dartmoor in the other direction. Ideally suited for holiday lets as very accessible and yet in a tranquil location.

Property:
With the current owners semi-retired, the existing business is based on only a limited market throughout the spring and summer months. There is a tremendous opportunity for additional growth. Cottages of this high quality and delightful setting could potentially attract a variety of clients the whole year round.
