Full description

Potential for detached annexe/additional dwelling??? A 17th century Grade II listed semi-detached cottage with lovely gardens of 0.4 acres, rural views and a detached studio with 2 bedrooms and conservatory(!) and so offering potential as an annexe, or to add an additional dwelling (subject to permissions).

DESCRIPTION Located just under half a mile from the nearest road, this truly is a little slice of Devon to enjoy! The cottage is handily situated just 2 miles from the villages of Copplestone and Bow, accessed via a country lane, Lammacott Cottage is one of a pair of semi-detached cottages with open views over the surrounding countryside and across the valley to Down St Mary.

The 17th century Grade II Listed property is currently used as one double bedroom with open plan study area to the other end, which could revert back to two separate bedrooms if desired. There is also an upstairs white suite bathroom with shower over Jacuzzi bath. Downstairs is larger with a great sized living room, complete with a big open fireplace and bread-oven, a kitchen diner plus a walk-in pantry accessed under the stairs, which leads to an open ended lean-to. The property has oil fired central heating throughout.

THE STUDIO is detached and faces onto its own garden. It was converted by the current owner from stables about 30 years ago and now offers an open plan living kitchen area, a conservatory, two bedrooms, plus a shower and WC. There is scope here to create an official detached annexe, or potentially create another dwelling although this hasn’t been looked in to and is obviously subject to necessary permissions.

The beautiful grounds and gardens extend to 0.4 acres in total with wonderful sweeping lawns connecting different areas such as the hidden garden, the Japanese male and female gardens and the terrace next to the cottage with fantastic far reaching views. There is also an open carport giving parking for 2 vehicles.


DON’T USE SAT-NAV! From Copplestone turn off towards Bow (A3072), after 1.5 miles (just before reaching the Ruby Beef Farm) turn right up Lammacott Lane, head up the hill and then turn left down the lane/farm track when the road splits. Lammacott Cottage is the first cottage on your right.

BOW is a parish and village on the River Yeo approximately 8 miles from Crediton, on the road to Okehampton. A unique feature of the village is the very high raised pavement running down one side of the main street.  There is an inn, an excellent primary school, village hall and Co-op mini supermarket.

COPPLESTONE is a popular Mid Devon village adjoining the A377 Exeter / Barnstaple road about 4 miles west of Crediton.  The Cathedral City of Exeter is about 12 miles to the south east with excellent communications including the M5 motorway, main line rail stations and its airport to the east of the city.  To the south west and the north east of Copplestone are the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor, renowned for their spectacular scenery with excellent facilities for walking, riding and fishing.  The village has an old Inn, post office / general stores and a modern primary school.  There is a bus service through the village to Exeter via Crediton.  The village also has a railway station with trains every hour to both Barnstaple and Exeter.  In the village stands an ancient granite cross which is mentioned in a Saxon charter of the year 974.  This cross is virtually in the centre of the County.
