Full description

A handsome and substantial period property currently run as a successful Country House Bed & Breakfast. 6 reception rooms, kitchen, pantry, larder, 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms (6 en suite). Ample parking. Large gardens. Views. 1.5 Acres. EPC Band F.

Situation - Eastwrey Barton is situated in the beautiful Wray Valley on the eastern side of the Dartmoor National Park and a mile from Lustleigh. Lustleigh has a strong community with a well-regarded pub, village store, tea rooms, garage and church. The nearby towns of Moretonhampstead and Bovey Tracey have a wide range of artisan and day-to-day shops and facilities. Although the property is set in an unspoilt part of the West Country, it is only six miles from the A38 which links Plymouth and Cornwall to the south and Exeter and the M5 to the north. Both cities have rail links to London on the Waterloo and Paddington lines whilst Exeter International Airport lies four miles to the east of the city.

Being within the Dartmoor National Park, there are many thousands of beautiful unspoilt moorland acres in which to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling, fishing and golf.

Description - Eastwrey Barton is currently run as a high quality, successful Country House Bed & Breakfast, currently rated AA 5 Gold Stars. Dartmoor has many thousands of visitors annually and the business offers an obvious opportunity for those looking for an income stream. Equally it could be enjoyed as a large family home.

Eastwrey Barton dates from the late Georgian, early Victorian era with older parts. It offers spacious and versatile accommodation of over 4,500 sq ft over four floors. The property retains many period features including well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and original fireplaces.

Accommodation - The entrance porch leads to an impressive reception hallway with doors to the principal reception rooms. There is a drawing room, with stone fireplace and inset wood burner, leading to a sun room with lovely views. The dining room has a cast iron fireplace with marble surround. This opens to a garden room again with lovely views to the front. Off the dining room is a lounge bar. An inner hall leads to a second sitting room and the fully equipped commercial kitchen with 6-ring gas hob and oven and a 4-oven oil-fired Aga. There is a rear porch, pantry and former dairy currently used as a walk-in larder. There are two cloakrooms on this level and steps leading down to a large cellar.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. On the second floor are 4 further bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms together with a separate shower room.

The Grounds - From the road a driveway leads up around the edge of the gardens to a large parking and turning area. Steps lead down to a paved terrace next to which is an ornamental pond. The majority of the gardens are laid to level and gently sloping lawns interspersed with a wide range of well-established trees, flower and shrub beds. Overall the property amounts to approximately 1.5 Acres.

Due to its position, there are stunning views down the valley from the gardens and many of the rooms.

Services - Mains electricity. Private water. Shared private drainage. Oil-fired central heating. Solar panels for hot water.

Directions - From Exeter and the M5 follow the A38 towards Plymouth. Exit at Drumbridges roundabout signposted Bovey Tracey. Continue on the A382 past Bovey Tracey towards Moretonhampstead. Continue past the turn off for Lustleigh on the left and proceed for a further 3/4 of a mile and Eastwrey Barton can be found on the right.
