The property enjoys a peaceful rural location abutting a quiet parish road within Virginstow and possesses a fine position with views over the surrounding countryside and to Dartmoor beyond. Some two miles from the property is the self contained village of St Giles on the Heath which offers a primary school, a thriving village hall, community post office / stores and a small pub, The Post and Pint. From St Giles on the Heath the A388 road is equidistant from the market town of Holsworthy and the former market town of Launceston, known as The Gateway to Cornwall. At Launceston there is a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including 24 hour supermarket, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries, places of worship, a fully equipped leisure centre, two testing 18 hole golf courses and numerous sporting and social clubs. Holsworthy has similar facilities, including a Waitrose supermarket, and from there it is only 7 miles to the coastal resort of Bude with its extensive sandy beaches and cliff walks. The showpiece South West Water reservoir at Roadford is some 1. 5 miles distant, providing a superb facility to the local community including fishing, sailing and bird watching. There is further access to the A30 trunk road at Broadwoodwidger some 3.5 miles from the property and this links the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 network, a main line rail station serving London Paddington and a well respected international airport. For the equestrian enthusiast the property lies equidistant between both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor which, between them, provide some of the best riding out in the West Country.
