Situation And Amenities - The Snare and Gin Trap is situated in the heart of Bishops Nympton, a popular and active village with primary school, church and village stores/post office. The market town of South Molton is approximately 3.5 miles to the west and offers a full range of shopping, social and banking facilities and amenities including infant, junior and secondary schools.
The A361 (North Devon Link Road) is about 2 miles from the cottage and provides and excellent road link to the regional centre of Barnstaple, some 15 miles to the west and to Tiverton to the east, leading on to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway Station on the London Paddington line.
The area offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, walking, cycling, fishing on the River Mole and River Taw and local golf at Chittlehamholt, Chulmleigh and Libbaton and slightly further afield at the renowned links of Saunton and Royal North Devon. Exmoor National Park is only a short drive and the famous North Devon coastline is also within easy reach by car.

Description - The Snare and Gin Trap is a public house that ceased trading in 2012. The building is believed to date from the 17th Century and the whole property, together with the ancillary building formerly used for storage on the ground floor with a studio above offers much scope for further development. Planning permission exists for sub-division to provide two separate residential dwellings, Further details below.

Main House - A part glazed upvc door leads in to the PORCH and double doors then lead straight into the LIVING / DINING ROOM, a large open plan room with many character features including exposed beams and a large stone fireplace with wood burner at the eastern end and a smaller, stone fireplace with wood burning stove at the western end of the room. Two bay windows overlook the front patio garden. The KITCHEN has a beamed ceiling, tiled floor and is fitted with a range of pine effect base and wall units, integrated hob with hood above and double oven set into a former fireplace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful STORE ROOM with tiled floor. The previous POOL ROOM has quarry tiled flooring and dado panelling. Accessed off this is a UTILITY/KITCHEN fitted with units with worktops over and stainless steel sink. Further stainless steel work surfaces and splashback, quarry tiled floor and tiled walls. The adjacent STORE ROOM retains the beer cellar pump fittings and relatively new air conditioning unit enabling the property to be operated as a public house should the new owners chose to do so.

On the FIRST FLOOR the LANDING leads to all the FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS, each with built in wardrobes. In addition there is a useful STUDY / OFFICE with recessed storage. The BATHROOM is fitted with a matching suite.
