The property is set in the heart of Cheriton, a small hamlet a short distance from the village of Payhembury with a pub, church, primary school and community shop. The local vicinity is quiet and unspoilt, with gentle hills and valleys, creating a beautiful rural setting. The larger nearby village of Feniton has a range of facilities including a station on the Waterloo line.

Readily accessible to the south is the small town of Ottery St Mary, the town has a range of useful facilities including the renowned The Kings School.

There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway and Exeter International Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.


Understood to date from the late 17th century, this beautiful historic home is Grade II listed and has had various alterations over the past few hundred years including a Flemish bond brick front elevation. Inside there is a wealth of character as you might expect with exposed timbers and more modern period fireplaces just waiting to be explored. Now in need of some extra love and attention the property has the potential to be a wonderful family home.
