Mortehoe is on the borders of Woolacombe and these twin villages stand on the Atlantic Coast. Woolacombe is famous for it's 3 mile sandy beach between Baggy and Morte Points and regularly receives Blue Flag and Premier Seaside Beach awards. It has become one of Devon's premier surfing destinations. Mortehoe and Woolacombe villages offer a good range of shops, restaurants bars, leisure facilities and outstanding local primary schools. The well regarded villages of Croyde and Saunton are both located an short drive away, each offering further sandy beaches and in the case of Saunton, a popular golf course and hotel. There are a number of other golf courses locally including at Mortehoe itself. The National cycle route, 27, passes by as does a bus service to Barnstaple and Woolacombe. Nearby Ilfracombe has an attractive harbour and Exmoor National Park and Lynton/Lynmouth with dramatic coastal scenery are easily accessible by car. North Devon's main trading centre, Barnstaple is approximately 15 miles and offers a wider range of amenities and facilities one would associate with a large town.

The nearest airports are Bristol and Exeter.

Description - A freehold building plot covering approximately 0.08 of an acre with the benefit of outline planning permission for the erection of a detached, 2 storey dwelling. Although the plot is currently over grown, we understand that at one time it was maintained as lawn and garden, and in the main, is apparently level. The local planning authority is North Devon District Council and the latest planning reference is 61195 . Copies of planning permission plans etc can be viewed via the North Devon District Council Planning Tracker Website. The layout of accommodation, with approximate dimension, is more clearly identified upon the accompanying floorplans but comprises:

Services - We understand that all mains services are available nearby.

At Mullacott Cross roundabout, bear left signed Mortehoe and Woolacombe, and then take the next turning on the right signed Mortehoe. Follow the road through the village, drop down Chapel Hill, passing Mortehoe Apartments on your left and the property will be found within a short distance also on the left identified by our For Sale board.
