The Dairy represents a most attractive example of a recently converted barn finished to an exceptional standard throughout, occupying a delightful and convenient position on the edge of High Bickington.

High Bickington is situated within the heart of North Devon countryside with rolling hills and fields, and offers excellent amenities that include a primary school, two popular public houses, Church, Chapel, Post Office, doctors' surgery and playing fields with cricket and football clubs. The village also boasts an 18-hole Golf Course at Libbaton and a community centre.
