Surrounded by its own land and affording a high degree of privacy, the property is just over a quarter mile from the A39 Bideford to Clovelly coastal road which provides convenient access. The small hamlet at Bucks Cross has post office/stores with a primary school at Woolsery about three miles to the south.

The port of Bideford to the east provides comprehensive facilities whilst Barnstaple, the ancient borough and administrative centre for North Devon is some 16 miles to the east and provides a very extensive range of both business and leisure facilities including the Green Lanes shopping centre, out of town superstores, live theatre, leisure centre and from the town direct access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which connects directly through to Junction 27 on the M5 motorway to the east side of Tiverton where there is also the Parkway railway station from where journey times to London/Paddington are two hours distant.
