Roncombe Farm is an attractive detached, non-listed farmhouse, set in 6 acres of its own land with outstanding rural views to the East Devon Coastline. The farmhouse has recently been refurbished to an extremely high standard throughout and planning permission has been granted to link the house to the barns, creating a large kitchen/living area, reception hall and master suite.


Sidbury about 1.5 miles, Sidmouth about 5 miles, Honiton about 5 miles, Exeter about 15 miles.

The property occupies a spectacular elevated position, offering far-reaching views over the Sid Valley to the East Devon Coastline. The property is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is well located, being almost equidistant between the towns of Honiton and Sidmouth, whilst also having easy access to the beautiful East Devon Coastline.

The house is approached along a pretty lane and sits in its own grounds set back from the road. Despite it's rural surroundings, the property is within easy reach of the pretty village of Sidbury, about 1.5 miles to the south, where a selection of everyday amenities can be found, including a village shop with butchers, pub, church and a primary school.

Further afield, at about 5 miles to the south is the popular coastal town of Sidmouth, which has private and state schools, a selection of independent shops, restaurants, a cinema, the Esplanade and beach, a Waitrose supermarket and cottage hospital. Alternatively Honiton, at about 5 miles to the north has a further range of amenities, and access to communication links including the A30 and a train station with regular services to London Waterloo.

Exeter at about 15 miles to the west, is a thriving regional centre with a wider range of schools, shopping and leisure facilities and communication links including rail services to London Paddington, access to the M5 Motorway and Exeter International Airport. The property is within easy reach of the Colyton Grammar School and also the spectacular East Devon Coastline and pretty towns and villages such as Beer, Branscombe, Axminster and Lyme Regis on the Devon Dorset border.


Roncombe Farm has been completely refurbished throughout by the present owners and has been finished to an extremely high standard. Improvements include a new roof, double glazed windows, modern kitchen and bathroom facilities and under-floor heating throughout the building and a Sonos sound system.

The ground floor provides a bright and spacious layout, comprising a reception hall with cloakroom and utility cupboard, a large reception room and a kitchen/dining and living room. There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is en suite and a family bathroom. On the second floor, there is an additional bedroom, storage room and shower room.

Planning permission has been granted to extend the house at the rear to link it to the existing barns, creating a large kitchen and dining area, a master bedroom suite and a two storey reception area. For further details please contact the agents or visit East Devon District Councils planning website. (Ref no: 12/2764/FUL).

The house is approached via a private drive, which leads to a gravelled parking and turning area to the side of the house. From here a track leads to the back of the property, where there is a fine courtyard of traditional stone barns, offering great potential for further development, subject to the necessary consents.

The grounds surrounding the property have been well maintained and extend to about 6 acres, comprising areas of garden with lawns and terraces, fenced paddocks, an orchard and section of woodland.
