Situation & Amenities - The delightful hamlet of Huntshaw is nestled within some of North Devon's most un-spoilt countryside where numerous woodland walks can be found, yet being just approximately 4 miles from Bideford and approximately 3 miles from Great Torrington. The historic Civil War market town of Great Torrington offers an excellent range of amenities for its size, including banks, butchers, bakeries, Post Office, greengrocers, various public houses, places of worship, Primary and Secondary School and 9 hole golf course on the outskirts of Great Torrington. Nearby tourist attractions include RHS Rosemoor, Torrington museum, Dartington Crystal factory and the Tarka Trail along the old railway line. The port and market town of Bideford sits on the banks of the River Torridge, offering an excellent range of amenities and also provides access to the long distance South West Coastal Path for stunning walks. The coast at Westward Ho! is approximately 7 miles away from Huntshaw and has a safe and sandy surfing beach and adjoins Northern Burrows Country Park. The regional centre of Barnstaple is approximately 9.6 miles away and offers all of the areas main business, shopping and commercial venues. There are also good transport opportunities via the A361 which connects to the motorway network at Junction 27 of the M5 and from Barnstaple railway station via the Tarka line to Exeter.

Description - In a truly idyllic unspoilt valley is this charming and very well presented individual Grade II listed detached house; a conversion of an old roundhouse and threshing barn.
