Situation

Dartridge Cottage is in an absolutely stunning setting at the end of a no through road with no near neighbours and enjoys a wonderful, unspoilt outlook over the Little Dart Valley. The property is only a short walk up the hill to the small town of Chulmleigh which offers excellent day to day facilities including post office, shops, churches, medical centre and good primary and senior schooling.

The larger market town of South Molton is about 11.5 miles to the north and offers a further range of amenities together with weekly stock and pannier markets. To the south, the Cathedral City of Exeter, about 21 miles, also offers direct access onto the M5 motorway as well as an airport and main line railway station with a mainline service to London Paddington. There is also a regular rail service on the Tarka Line between Exeter and Barnstaple via Eggesford station (2.6 miles).

The A361 (North Devon Link Road) is only 11 miles at Moortown Cross and links to Tiverton and the M5 (J27) to the east.
