LOCATION The property is located a couple of miles from the village of Burrington, which is set in the beautiful Taw Valley in the stunning Devonshire countryside. The village offers a primary school, pub, village shop and parish hall.

Bedport Farmhouse is situated between the Taw and Torridge valleys amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside. The small town of Chulmleigh is approximately 6 miles to the east and provides everyday essentials: shops, dentist, doctors, restaurants, primary and secondary education. Chulmleigh Academy is a highly successful, popular school and the small village primary school at Burrington is very well supported. Great Torrington is approximately 11 miles to the west, with its market, shops, bank, as well as the regionally famous Plough Arts Centre. The regional centre for North Devon, Barnstaple, offers a further range of shops, social and educational facilities. The market town of South Molton, with its popular twice weekly pannier market, offers a further range of amenities and is well situated to the North Devon Link Road (A361) and the M5 (Junction 27) beyond. There are main line railway stations at Tiverton Parkway & Exeter St Davids, providing direct lines to London Paddington.

The property occupies a convenient position due to its close proximity to the train station at Portsmouth Arms, providing good transport links to Barnstaple and Exeter via the Tarka Line.

Good sporting and recreation facilities are available in the area with fishing on the River Taw and Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks are both within easy reach. The area is ideally suited for riding with quiet lanes and bridle paths. There are a number of golf courses within the area, High Bullen Golf & Country Club, Libbaton and Saunton, to name a few. The spectacular North Devon coast offers a number of nationally known surfing beaches including Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde.
