Park Farm is set on the side of the highly attractive Taw valley in a slightly elevated position and enjoys some of the finest views across the valley. Although rurally situated the village of Umberleigh is only about two miles to the north west and has amenities including post office, village hall and public house and also links with the A377 that runs between Barnstaple and Exeter. About six miles to the east is the local market town of South Molton, which has a good selection of amenities, shops and schooling for all ages. To the north west and approximately 10 miles distant is the regional centre of Barnstaple and the Cathedral and University City of Exeter is about 32 miles.


Park Farm is a superb and spacious Grade II listed house believed to date from the early 16th Century and is presented in excellent decorative order. The house offers spacious accommodation with five bedrooms including a master suite with dressing room and ensuite bathroom as well as a recent addition providing a superb kitchen/breakfast room. Outside there is an excellent range of both traditional and modern buildings as well as approximately 9.3 acres of south west facing, gently sloping pasture. The combination of the land and the buildings and especially the large, adaptable modern shed are considered to make the property ideal for equestrian use.
