North Moor Farm sits on the north eastern flank of the Dartmoor National Park in a rural yet accessible location. The delightful moorland town of Moretonhampstead lies less than 2 miles south of the property providing a delightful range of shops, pubs, cafes and primary school. The cathedral city of Exeter is around 12 miles to the east providing a superb range of facilities, mainline railway station, international airport and access to the M5 motorway. In the more immediate area, the delights of the Dartmoor National Park offer superb opportunities for those who enjoy outdoor life, superb walking, riding and cycling in this most beautiful part of the world with thousands of acres of open moorland close by.

From Moretonhampstead take the A382 north towards Chagford. On the outskirts of Moretonhampstead, at the roundabout, take the third exit onto a minor lane, signposted Howton.  Continue on this road for 1.3 miles where North Moor Farm will be found on the right hand side.  

North Moor Farm includes an attractive, stone farmhouse which is in excellent order and provides comfortable family accommodation, together with a versatile range of general purpose and equestrian outbuildings and farmland contained in three principal enclosures.  From the property there are stunning views over beautiful, undulating countryside with Haytor forming a dramatic backdrop in the south.  

The Farmhouse
The period, stone farmhouse is believed to have been constructed in the 1860’s, (please note: the house is not Listed) with all of the principal rooms of a good size and height and features such as original fireplaces, exposed granite walls and boarded floors.  

At the front of the house an entrance porch leads to the main reception hallway off which there are doors to the principal living rooms.  Both the sitting room and the dining room have exposed granite fireplaces housing multi-fuel/wood burning stoves with French windows leading from either room to the front garden.  The large farmhouse kitchen is an impressive room with wooden flooring throughout, original fireplace with solid fuel “Stanley” range cooker, further gas range cooker, range of floor units with work tops and inset sinks.  Doors give access to the gardens.  Two staircases give access to the first floor where there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.  From these upstairs rooms, there are superb views over beautiful countryside towards Haytor in the distance. 

The entrance drive is flagged by lawns interspersed with plantings and arrives at a wide parking area beyond which a low granite wall with central path leads to the house.  There are gardens to the front and side of the house with a delightful raised granite terrace beyond which is a stone and slated building providing a workshop and store housing the water treatment plant.  On the opposite side of the entrance drive is a versatile, timber framed open fronted barn (measuring 75’ x 30’) providing loose pens, hay/straw storage as well as parking for vehicles.  Located in a paddock behind this building is a purpose built wooden stable block providing six loose boxes (four 12’ x 12’ and two 10’ x 10’).
