An opportunity to purchase a detached traditional barn with planning consent for conversion into a two bedroom holiday letting unit. 

SITUATION The barn is set in the former farmstead of Upcott Farm which also comprises three houses currently under construction, a further barn with consent for two holiday units and modern working farm buildings. The barn is reached by a shared private track also serving the other properties and by the local farmer to access the neighbouring fields. The nearby large village of Winkleigh is about 1.4 miles distant and is an attractive place with many period cob and thatch cottages and provides a number of local amenities for visitors and locals alike including pubs, village store/post office, churches and cafes. The town of Okehampton on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park is about 9 miles to the south with high street and supermarket shopping, golf course and leisure centre. The A30 dual carriageway lies just beyond giving good access to Exeter and the M5 motorway and also to Cornwall. 

DESCRIPTION This attractively positioned property provides a purchaser with the opportunity to develop their own holiday letting unit and to then generate a useful letting income in this peaceful and rural part of Devon. The plans include a living room, kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside is to be a garden area. The building has three sections and has mainly rubble stone walls and a corrugated iron roof which is to be replaced with slate when converted. The barn would also be suitable for other employment/business uses subject to obtaining Planning Permission.
