Full description

Barn with Prior Notification change of use acceptance for conversion to residential.

DESCRIPTION Dovers Linhay is set in an idyllic setting with extensive views across some of the most beautiful Devon countryside. Although the barn is in a quiet and rural position it will not be remote as will be set within a small hamlet of other barn conversions and the original farmhouse. Less than a mile away is the sought after village of Cheriton Fitzpaine.

The scheme is for a single storey detached dwelling. At 2,088sqft the three bed conversion has very generous proportions with a large and impressive hallway.  The bedrooms are located toward the central and eastern end of the property and consist of three large double bedrooms with a family bathroom and an ensuite off the master bedroom.  The utility and open plan kitchen / dining room lead through to a spacious lounge area which itself leads through to the terraced area in the garden via two bi-fold doors.  The views from this terraced area are uninterrupted and spectacular.  

VAT will not be charged on the sale of the land.

The property is available on a freehold basis with vacant possession on completion.

We understand that mains electricity and water are available for connection close to the entrance of the property, please make your own enquiries concerning service connection to the statutory undertakers.

The property is available for immediate possession.

The barn has prior notification for the change of use of agricultural building to dwelling under Class Q.  Change of use acceptance was granted by Mid Devon District Council on the 22nd April 2015, the full details of which can be found on the Mid Devon website under the planning reference 15/00299/PNCOU.  A planning pack containing the main planning documents, including the approval, can be downloaded as a single PDF from our website at or on request by calling 01363 777999.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty.  The vendor is seeking to dispose of the site on an unconditional basis.


Cheriton Fitzpaine sits in a vast and hilly lowland region of Devon, 9 miles from the City of Exeter and 1.5 miles northeast of the Crediton/ Tiverton A3072 road – a route that could be argued to be one of the most stunning sunset drives in the county. The village appears timeless and has many listed cottages with the classic poured custard thatched roofs. Notably there’s also a gothic church, known for its hard edges and sharp peaks. There are two pubs, The Ring of Bells and The Half Moon Inn – both of which are unique, but equally Devonian in spirit. Cheriton Fitzpaine is a substantial size and has a multi-million pound primary school, a Doctor’s surgery and (as is essential) a post office/ shop. Local children are fortunate to be able to use (acquire grass stains in!) and shoot hoops in ‘Jack’s Acre’, a large playing field/ park maintained by the parish council. For foodies ‘Thornes Farm Shop’ is nearby, and is home to some exceptional quality, homegrown produce.  What’s not to like?

• Leave Crediton via Exhibition Road (A3072)
• After 2 miles turn off left, signed ‘Chilton’
• Continue through Chilton & up the hill
• At the T-Junction turn right (Farringdon Hill)
• 0.25 miles the barns will be found ahead of you
