Situation And Amenities - In terms of location, the property enjoys the best of all worlds, being in a small and quiet hamlet on the semi-rural outskirts of Barnstaple, yet is within a healthy walk of Pilton Village and even the town centre, which is about 1 1/2 miles away.

As the regional centre for North Devon, Barnstaple provides excellent shopping facilities including retail parks, entertainment, further education establishments, hospital and branch line station with regular services to Exeter and connecting services beyond, including London. The North Devon Link Road (A361) gives easy access to the M5 Motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway, which between them offer fast road and rail links to the rest of the country. Bristol and Exeter International Airports are both within about 2 hours travelling distance. The glorious rolling North Devon Countryside to the north and west of the property, leads to the adjoining coastline which is acknowledged to be amongst the finest in the country, ranging from the high wild cliffs and plunging valleys of Exmoor to the renowned surfing beaches of Croyde, Saunton Sands (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe. In between, the wooded combes and rolling hills offer miles of delightful walks as well as riding and cycling. Fishing can be enjoyed on the Rivers Taw & Torridge and Instow and Appledore which also offer safe bathing, sailing and boating.
