A secluded period farmhouse, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, capable of 2 family use, also a detached one bed bungalow and other outbuildings including stables, garden and river meadows with stream and steep grazing beyond in all about 28 acres.

The property is beautifully located to the north western end of the Exmoor National Park set nestled in a pretty unspoilt valley location joining Trentishoe Common, owned by the National Trust and about a mile inland from the dramatic North Devon Coastline at Trentishoe midway between the twin coastal resort towns of Lynton and Lynmouth to the east and the village of Combe Martin to the west. About a mile to the north is the ancient parish church of Trentishoe with the Hunters Inn and Heddons Mouth being just over a mile to the east with Lynton and Lynmouth being 7 miles, Combe Martin 5 miles and Barnstaple the ancient borough and administrative centre for North Devon some 15 miles to the south.

There are extensive walks and bridle paths on Trentishoe Common and the surrounding unspoilt farmland.

The current owners have been at the property since 1969 and the property is only for sale owing to age and failing health.
