Mockham Barton is about a mile north outside of Brayford in
North Devon. The village has a primary school and a thriving
community with a pub and shop. It is a short drive via the A399 to the outskirts of Barnstaple. Barnstaple is the regional centre of North Devon and offers a good range of facilities and amenities including sports centre, out of town and town centre
shops, regional hospital, businesses and indoor Pannier Market.
It lies at the head of the tidal Taw Estuary which gives way at its
mouth to some of the best beaches (Croyde, Putsborough and
Saunton Sands) in the west country. Woody Bay at Martinhoe
in the Exmoor National Park is also a stunning beach which is about 13 miles away. Barnstaple also hosts the Tarka Trail cycle
track which follows the path of the old railway track inland as
far as Torrington and Merton. To the North of Mockham Barton
the undulating lowland landscape quickly gives way to the open
moorland of Exmoor, home to a myriad of opportunities for
outdoor recreation including field sports, walking and riding.
Mockham Barton is a 17th century farmhouse mentioned in the
Domesday book and was formerly known as Mogescome. Today
Mockham Barton provides an elegant family home with well
proportioned rooms that are full of interesting architectural features. The house currently provides 6 spacious double bedrooms and a 7th single bedroom and has wonderful views over its own gardens, land and traditional buildings which are laid out in a courtyard setting. A particular feature of the farm house is the ability to extend the property into the adjoining traditional stone building. Planning consent has been granted to convert this building into two floors of residential space. In addition there are several other traditional stone buildings surrounding the farm house that may provide further alternative uses subject to the necessary planning consent.

From Junction 27 on the M5 take the A361 North Devon link road for about 22 miles, at the Aller cross roundabout take the 4th exit onto the A399 signposted Combe Martin, Ifracombe. Follow this road for about 6 miles past the turning on the right to the village of Brayford. Mockham Barton is under 1 mile from this turning and is a sharp turning on your left just next to a telegraph pole. The farm is not signposted. It may be safer in some instances to go beyond the turning and turnaround on top of the hill and approach it from the other direction.
