Occupying a prominent position in the heart of this popular rural village, a traditional thatched Grade II Listed public house with four/five bedroomed staff/guest accommodation which may offer scope for alternative uses (subject to planning), ample car parking and attractive decked gardens.


"The Stag" offers prospective purchasers a unique opportunity to acquire a versatile and well regarded Grade II Listed and thatched village public house believed to be recognised as one of the oldest public houses in Devon dating in part to the 12th century, providing a wealth of historic charm and character. "The Stag" was formerly operating as a public house with accommodation above, although it is thought that the property may have potential for alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents.

Dining room with double doors to the beer garden and an opening which leads to a further dining area with ample seating. A rear entrance hall with gents, ladies and disabled toilets. Rear passage with refrigerated beer cellar, stairs to first floor, opening into a spacious and well equipped commercial style kitchen with Grant oil fired boiler for central heating and hot water. Situated beyond the kitchen is a side entrance lobby which leads to a large function room which doubles up as a skittle alley.
The living accommodation briefly comprises on the first floor, a laundry room, Bedroom 1/living room, 3 further good sized bedrooms, one currently used as a kitchen, bedroom 5 with en-suite shower room together with a separate bathroom. Also on the ground floor and accessed from the entrance passage is a separate dining/living room with additional stairs to bedroom 1/living room.

The Stag occupies a prominent position in the heart in the popular rural village of Rackenford just off the A361 North Devon Link Road. The village itself affords a good range of local amenities including a primary school, village stores/post office and parish church. The property is readily accessible to the main centres of communication. The bustling towns of South Molton and Tiverton afford a comprehensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities with the latter providing convenient access via the A361 (T) to the M5 (J27) and with mainline rail connections available adjacent to this junction at Tiverton Parkway. Taunton and Exeter are within convenient reach and afford the range of facilities befitting those of county and regional centres.
In itself, the property occupies a position within south west England renowned for its diversity of countryside and for the many varied sporting and recreational facilities available either within the immediate vicinity or further afield. The North Devon coastline is within convenient reach, as are the national parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Set back from the village road the property is accessed via a right of way over an entrance drive leading to the side and rear, with a large parking area for a number of cars. Access ramps lead up to two sets of double doors to the function room. Adjoining the rear elevation is a large timber decked Beer Garden/Sitting Out area contained within timber trellis fencing.
Situated to the front of the property, a stone wall with inset flower bed adjoins the road, further raised stone flower bed and tarmacadam sitting out areas to either side of the front gable.
Adjoining, at the end of the function room, is a small Lean-to timber Store.
