Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ebford village lies in a highly sought after residential location being conveniently situated within commuting distance of Exeter and Exmouth and also close to Topsham town centre and the ever popular Darts Farm is only a short distance away. The M5, A30 and A38 are all within easy driving distance and yet the village retains much of its original character and appeal.

From Topsham take the A376 Exmouth Road. At the George & Dragon roundabout turn right towards Exmouth. After about 500 metres take the first left hand turn into Ebford Lane. Continue down the lane taking the first turning on the right and 2 The Knights will be found at the end on the right.
