A short distance from the property is Littleham Primary School (Ofsted - Good), The Clinton Arms pub and a short drive to a local convenience store. Exmouth is approximately ten miles to the south of the university and cathedral city of Exeter. The town is bounded to the west by the estuary of the river Exe, to the south by Lyme Bay and the English Channel, to the north by Woodbury Common (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and to the east by land designated not only as a Coastal Preservation Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but recognised internationally as a World Heritage Site. There are railway stations at Exmouth and Lympstone that provide a regular link to Exeter, which has services to London (Waterloo & Paddington).

Description - This attractive Victorian dwelling provides the perfect family home, offering desirable period features of its era, distinctive high ceilings, feature fireplaces, and wonderful gothic arched windows. Surrounding Brook House are delightful well-kept gardens including an ancient Yew tree, gated entrance onto a drive with ample parking leading to an integral garage. Beyond the gardens are the grounds to the Parish Church and open countryside, a fine outlook for a property on the edge of this sought after location.
