Full description

Creacombe Barn is at the very centre of the small village of Creacombe. Once a vital part of Creacombe Barton Farm, which has been owned by the same family for generations, with the changes in farming practices over the last few decades it has eventually become redundant.

In 2015, following the introduction of the permitted development rules for agricultural barn conversions to dwellings, prior approval was obtained from the North Devon District Council to convert the barn into a two bedroom dwelling.

Creacombe Barn is hugely significant to the character and preservation of the village of Creacombe. A traditional stone and cob construction matching the other buildings in the area, it also features a unique traditional tiled roof. The design principles applied to the proposed change of use seek to preservce the existing character of the not only the building - with one of Devon's oldest Victorian post boxes set into the wall of the barn - but also of the village as a whole.

The owner is now offering this unique opportunity to take a long (i.e. ten plus fixed term lease on a peppercorn rent with the obligation to convert the barn at the tenant's own expense to the plans approved by North Devon District Council, although these may be amended subject to further negotiation and planning approval.

The owner would support an option to sublet under the tenancy, subject to further negotiation.
