Among undulating hills and valleys in the prettiest of Devon’s countryside lies Woodrow, a stunning Grade ll listed cob and thatch farmhouse. It has been a much loved family home for the last 20 years. It comes with an additional residential accommodation provided by a self-contained attached 2 bedroom cottage. Woodrow has a range of traditional cob and stone out buildings to include a stable for a pony and a collection of traditional barns. It also comes with approx. 10 acres of land which has great amenity appeal, most of which is bordered by a very pretty small stream the Mully Brook. Further land is available by separate negotiation.

This delightful farmhouse house dates back to the 15th Century and is located down a quiet lane on the edge of the small village of Ashreigney in mid Devon. The house has preserved a very traditional unspoilt appearance with some interesting original and character features one of which is that the medieval roof is still intact.

It has an abundance of character with exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, and original plank and muntin screens. As with all properties of this type the accommodation is spacious and intriguing. To the right of the welcoming hall there is a lovely drawing room with a wood burner and French windows that lead out to the small enclosed front garden. To the left of the hall, the farmhouse kitchen, once again a lovely room, forms the heart of the house and it comes with a gas fired Aga, a concealed bread oven and a range of original built in cupboards. Following on from here there is a separate pantry and a large walk in larder with slate shelves. Beyond this there is a laundry room and access to a pretty rear courtyard and stables. Leading from the kitchen through a study is the large sitting room which was converted at a later stage from a barn. This impressive room has a wood burner which is perfect for those cosy winter evenings. On the 2nd floor access is provided via a wooden staircase that leads to a series of 6 rooms. 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are doubles, 1 has a large dressing room which can be converted to an ensuite bathroom/dressing room. The other double has a dressing room/nursery and there is also a bathroom.

Across the rear courtyard with its own separate entrance is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath single storied cosy cottage. It has a solid fuel Rayburn and a sweet sunny secluded courtyard garden. It would make a lovely holiday let.

Directly in front of the house there is a charming enclosed walled garden with flower beds and shrubs. Leading from the enclosed rear grassy courtyard there are further gardens a large vegetable plot, orchard and a paddock of approx. 4 acres. There are a series of traditional buildings surrounding the house one is currently used as a workshop and garage but offers scope for alternative uses including stabling. The main bulk of the land is over the small road and extends to approx. 6 acres. It is bordered on one side by a small stream, the Mully Brook. This land would be perfect for alternative uses (subject to the usual pp) such as glamping pods or amenity land.

The local town of Chulmleigh, approx. four and a half miles away, offers an excellent variety of shops a health centre bank, and senior and junior schooling. There is also a popular 18 hole short hole golf course.

The larger market town of South Molton is about 14 miles and offers a larger range of eclectic amenities. The renowned North Devon coastline with extensive sandy beaches is all within easy reach by car.

About 26 miles to the south is the Cathedral City of Exeter with its airport and main line railway networks. There is a branch line service running along the Tarka Line from Exeter to Barnstaple through Eggesford and Kings Nympton station, both within easy reach from the property.
