3 Rose Cottages is a pretty terraced cottage, full of charm and character. It is located in the heart of this quiet and sought after semi rural village, within a convenient position, within a short stroll to the Chichester Arms Pub, bus stop and is situated on the Tarka Trail and cycle network linking to local beaches. It benefits from an attractive ‘chocolate box’ appearance, with a thatched roof and storm porch, along with a larger than expected rear garden. There is a lovely ambience as you walk through the property and there are many character features, including exposed beams. The accommodation briefly comprises of a cosy lounge, bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room with double doors leading to the garden, first floor bathroom and a good sized double bedroom. The cottage would make a lovely main residence, but equally would serve as a perfect holiday retreat, with excellent rental potential.

The North Devon Link Road (A361) is also convenient and offers a fast route to the M5 at Junction 27 (Tiverton) and the Motorway Network beyond. An excellent bus service operates between Barnstaple and surrounding towns with further connections beyond. A national mainline railway line links Barnstaple with Exeter St. David's, with further connecting services to London and beyond, and to Exeter Central for the excellent shopping facilities.
