DESCRIPTION Westacott is a large, Grade II listed thatched former farmhouse occupying a rural position yet with excellent links to both Shobrooke and Crediton. There are no near neighbours and there are additional adjoining fields available of up to 4 acres.

Over time, the house has been used as one and also utilising its size and flexibility to adapt to provide a self-contained annexe to one end making it ideal for many uses. The 17c character can be found throughout with the large Inglenook fireplace, complete with bread over and plenty of exposed timbers.

Outside is a private driveway leading to an ample parking area and a double garage. The gardens sit predominantly to the front (south) with an outlook back towards Crediton. The property is located just outside the popular village of Shobrooke, which lies approximately 2 miles east of Crediton and 11 miles from the City of Exeter. It is surrounded by picturesque Mid-Devon countryside providing a selection of footpaths and walks through Shobrooke Park and a walk along the country lanes can bring you to the village of Newton St Cyres with the train to Exeter/Crediton and the ever popular Beer Engine public house.

CREDITON is an old Mid Devon market town with a wealth of history, being situated just 7.5 miles north-west of the Cathedral City of Exeter with the M5 motorway some 3 miles further on.  The town is surrounded by unspoilt farmland in an area of great natural beauty.  There is a regular daily bus service to Exeter plus trains every hour to Exeter and Barnstaple and a local town bus which covers most urban areas.  The town is most famous for its ancient parish church and for being the birthplace of St Boniface in 680 AD.  It has excellent schooling facilities at both senior and junior levels and a sports and leisure centre incorporating a superb swimming pool.  The town has an excellent selection of shops with a Morrisons and a large Tesco superstore/petrol filling station.
