Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming rural stone farmhouse, set in an idyllic valley, a mile from the sea in the glorious South Hams - an area of outstanding natural beauty.

A long private drive, with gardens to each side, leads to the farmhouse. The gardens are bounded by fields and by Noddon Stream with its ancient butterwell. There is a parking area for 4 cars from which paved steps lead to the entrance.

Noddon Farmhouse has been carefully restored by the present owners. Most recently the addition of a superb garden room, supplied by David Salisbury, provides a year-round space for relaxation and entertaining.

From here there is access to both the dining room and spacious drawing room with its large wood burning stove. The south west facing kitchen /breakfast room with its Aga and attractive units opens to a terrace for eating outside on sunny days. Off the kitchen is the essential utility area with a walk-in larder and laundry. Also, on the floor, is a fourth en-suite bedroom, currently used as a spacious and comfortable study overlooking the garden.

An ancient turret staircase leads to the first floor where there is a master bedroom with dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom, two further spacious double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Ringmore is an old smuggling village, well known for its 12th century church and colour washed cottages, not far from the cliff tops just around from Bigbury Bay. The beach at the National Trust owned Ayrmer cove is within walking distance and is not generally known about except by villagers. Some five miles away is the Georgian town of Modbury, which is well provided with a range of local shops. For more comprehensive shopping centres Kingsbridge is a short drive to the east and Plymouth is to the north west. Nearby there are other beaches and coves, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks, and an 18 hole golf course at Bigbury. Further afield there is sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers and Dartmoor National Park is to the north.
