The Cottage is set with no immediate neighbours in the highly attractive Taw Valley, in the midst of some of Devon's most attractive countryside and offers a wide range of recreational pursuits including fishing, riding, shooting, delightful walks and cycling.

The thriving small town of Chulmleigh is about two miles and offers a good range of local shops and amenities including medical centre, dentist, library and primary and secondary schooling. The market town of South Molton approximately ten miles distant offers a more comprehensive range of facilities, whilst the North Devon regional centre of Barnstaple lies about 15 miles away to the north and the Cathedral City of Exeter 24 miles to the south east.

There are nearby railway stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Eggesford and Kings Nympton and the M5 motorway is within easy travelling distance at Junction 27, where there is also a mainline station at Tiverton Parkway.


The Cottage is a delightful detached property which, in recent years has been significantly improved and extended by the current owners to now provide an intriguing and stylish home. The accommodation is presented in excellent decorative order with the origins of the original thatched cottage contrasting nicely with the contemporary style of the interior. The accommodation is also quite flexible with the provision of a bedroom and adjacent shower room on the ground floor which can be used for a dependent relative if required. The cottage is set in good sized gardens and grounds and also has a useful range of timber-framed outbuildings.


A glazed open PORCH with glazed front door leads into the LIVING ROOM with a stone flagstone floor, painted ceiling beams and large fireplace with wood burning stove and bread oven. The DINING ROOM also has a similar floor, painted ceiling beams, corner cupboard (concealing a former fireplace that could be re-instated) and recessed display shelving. The impressive KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has a tiled floor, spiral staircase to the first floor and glazed double doors to the rear garden. The kitchen area is fitted with bespoke units with slate worktops over, double bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher.

At the opposite end of the cottage and off the living room is an inner LOBBY with coat hooks and BOILER ROOM off. There is a SHOWER ROOM with tiled floor and vaulted ceiling, pedestal wash basin, WC, large shower cubicle with mixer shower and fitted cupboards along one wall. The ground floor BEDROOM also has a vaulted ceiling and glazed double doors to the garden.
