Situation & Amenities

In a timeless and tranquil hamlet on high ground enjoying magnificent views over open countryside towards the Torridge estuary, out to sea and to Lundy Island in the distance. Substantially unspoilt by urban influences, North Devon has over 850 sq miles of some of Englands finest coast and countryside. The Pines at Eastleigh is centrally located in this unique environment. The diversity of landscapes within this unique area with its magnificent coast, moor land and rolling farmland, all combine to offer an almost limitless range of activities. The interesting ancient port of Bideford, the fishing village of Appledore, the estuary of Instow and the sweeping beach at Westward Ho! are all only a few minutes drive away. Clovelly, Tintagel, Lynton, Exmoor and Dartmoor are within an hour's drive. Barnstaple, the regional centre, is about 6 miles and houses the areas main business, commercial, entertainment and leisure pursuits. From here the North Devon link road connects directly with the M5 motorway at Tiverton, along with bus and rail terminals. The nearest airports are at Bristol or Exeter.  

From The Pines there are many walks along quiet lanes and footpaths with fine views.


The Pines represents an excellent example of a lifestyle opportunity comprising the attractions of country living with a manageable business underway and producing a healthy income. There is considered to be potential to expand upon this, or even diversify into a variety of alternative uses subject to any necessary planning permission being obtained. Furthermore, there is scope to develop the period outbuildings, once again subject to the usual consents. Not only does the property lend itself to a number of income opportunities but keen gardeners will appreciate the formal and more informal park like gardens and for those interested in equestrian pursuits the accompanying acreage offers ample scope. All in all there is something for everyone at The Pines which offers a rare opportunity for those interested in getting away from it all and relocating to one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of the country.

The Barn & Roundhouse

Separated and screening The Stables from Vine Cottage. The Barn presents elevations of stone beneath a thatched roof, currently protected by a corrugated outer layer. This measures 3711 x 176, has power, light and water connected and would make an excellent function room. The adjacent roundhouse presents elevations of stone beneath a tiled roof and measures 214 x 2011. The roof is supported by a massive tree beam.  

Further outbuildings surrounding the courtyard include tool store, wood store, work shop, gardeners WC and boiler rooms housing independent boilers for The Stables and Vine Cottage.


The main house can be approached through a single high iron gate over a gravelled driveway. Alternatively, there is a secondary access to an extensive car parking area immediately below the main entrance. The formal gardens are principally arranged to the right of the main house and these are laid to sweeping lawns interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs including two mature pines after which the property was named. There is a third independent access into the courtyard serving the secondary units, which is attractively landscaped with a series of pathways and areas of lawn, as well as some well established Camellias. The gardens are well tended in general and arranged to ensure that the privacy of the main house is protected. From the garden is a gateway leading to an ancient orchard, which is hedge enclosed. From the car park a gated access leads into the upper paddock with an avenue of young trees and reed bed for the drainage system. There is a connecting access to the lower paddock and to the former quarry, from which we understand the stone to build the house was recovered. There are two further access points from the main lane into the fields.  

The whole provides an appropriate setting and amounts to 5.68 acres.
