With the new by-pass now open Exeter and the M5 motorway can be reached in half an hour. Torquay train station is only a few minutes away with a mainline service to Paddington via Newton Abbot. Exeter Airport has regular flights to many international and European destinations.

The principal accommodation is laid out over two levels and comprises of 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), family bathroom, kitchen/family room, sitting room and dining room.
