Stunning country views, wonderful rear garden (110 feet), 2 double bedroomed Grade II listed cottage with woodburner, inglenook fireplace and bread oven. In highly sought after village and handy for Crediton and easy commute into Exeter.

DESCRIPTION  This delightful and superbly presented 2 double bedroomed Grade II listed cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Shobrooke, within easy reach of all amenities. Thought to date back to the 1600’s, the property is full of period features, character and old world charm and has been extended twice, in Victorian times and again more recently.  

A real feature of the property is the wonderful rear garden extending to over 110 feet and stunning country views over adjoining countryside, which can be enjoyed from the summer house at the bottom of the garden.

The accommodation offers what you would expect in a period cottage with its living room extending to nearly 17 feet and benefiting from a welcoming woodburner and a lovely period inglenook fireplace and bread oven. There are further reception rooms including a dining room and a conservatory, plus a kitchen/breakfast room.

There is certainly space for the property to be extended, with the option of incorporating the double garage into further living accommodation, subject to gaining the necessary permissions. 

Shobrooke is a village, parish and former manor – located 1½ miles north east of Crediton. The village backdrop is that of smaller hills, and brief woodland ridges, with oak and ash commonplace – interspersed by a collaged, arable landscape, of frequent colour. The name ‘Shobrooke’ is derived from the old English words ‘succa’ and ‘broc’, meaning ‘Hob-goblin Brook’.  Nearby lies Shobrooke Park, a spacious country estate, open to the public, with many wizened and ancient trees standing tall. Furthermore it claims a large fishing lake, and a grassy amphitheatre – for live music on summer nights. The Red Lion Inn offers B&B facilities, a beer garden with lush country views, and excellent food and drink. Plus, it provides a welcome rest stop to those travelling between Land’s End and John O’groats. Shobrooke is in the immediate catchment area for the schools in Crediton – also home to the closest shops.

DIRECTIONS  Upon entering Shobrooke from Crediton, proceed down the hill and 2 Shobrooke Village will be found on the left, just beyond the village pub.
