LOCATION
In a delightful rural location approached down a single track country lane, this property is surrounded by lawns and mature trees which have an abundance of wildlife. The property is located at the end of the cul-de-sac having near neighbours and it should be noted that there is a right of way across the main track to the adjoining property. The cottages are within 2.5 miles of Torrington, a popular North Devon market town and are located just off of the A385 which joins Torrington and Okehampton. In the vicinity is the Smytham Manor holiday lodge site and indeed the buildings within this small complex were part of the estate many years ago and were converted from agricultural buildings.

THE PROPERTY
The property is that of an L-shaped barn conversion providing 2 two bedroom holiday cottages and 1 three bedroom holiday cottage, each having its own rear patio area and is approached from an open plan gravelled car parking area to the front. To the rear there is a communal lawned garden with a large pond originally used as a shire horse washing
pond but now acting as a haven for wildlife and attracting many water birds including mallards, moorhens and such like. Directly opposite the car park to the front of the property is a children's play area with swings and on the right on the building is a single story reception area with mashing machine facility. Planning permission was granted on the 15th of April 2016 to allow the cottage known as 'Mallards 'to be used as managers accommodation, the cottages known as Otters and Brambles remain as holiday lets. (Planning Number: 1/0086/2016/FUL Local Authority: Torridge District Council) This could enable you to let two holiday cottages, one three bedroom and one two bedroom which will lower the income potential should you wish to live onsite.
