SITUATION The property is situated between the villages of Lewdown and Bridestowe and within easy access of both Dartmoor and the A30 road network and with the former Market Town of Okehampton approximately 8 miles to the east. 

Bridestowe is a pretty West Country village situated at the head of the Lew Valley at the north western foothills of the Dartmoor National Park and surrounded by some of Devon's finest countryside. The village centre incorporates a well patronised general store, public house, church and primary school.

Lewdown has a useful post office/general store and public house and is located on the old A30 which has been greatly enhanced by the construction of the new A30 dual carriageway between Okehampton and Launceston. Lewdown is situated approximately 9 miles west of Okehampton, 7 miles east of Launceston and 8 miles north of Tavistock. 

Okehampton lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains several banks and supermarkets as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. The recreation ground and park contains, amongst other things, a covered heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts, indoor rifle range and thriving rugby and soccer clubs.
