Location Roachill is a quiet hamlet close to the village of Knowstone and conveniently placed for the A361 North Devon Link Road which gives easy access to the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline railway station. It is equi-distant from the market towns of Tiverton and South Molton, both providing banks, library, supermarkets, local shopping etc. Barnstaple, with a more extensive range of facilities, is about 20 miles away. Knowstone, with the famous Michelin * Masons Arms restaurant and public house is close by. The property is approximately 40 minutes' drive from the North Devon coast with its sandy beaches and coastal walks and the nationally acclaimed surfing beaches of Croyde Bay, Saunton Sands, Putsborough and Woolacombe. Also, Exmoor National Park with its spectacular scenery is near at hand. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of riding, walking and sporting opportunities.
