SITUATION
Set at the end of a ‘no-through’ round within the charming hamlet of Cookbury.  The neighbouring village of Bradford has a primary school which is just under a mile away and the village of Shebbear is approximately 4 miles and benefits from village shop, public house, mobile post office, primary school and private college.  Just over 5 miles to the west is Holsworthy with its parish Church which has an unusual dedication to St John the Baptist and the Seven Maccabees and still has its 13th Century Tower and Chancel.  Holsworthy has a good range of shops, including Waitrose and Co-op supermarket.  There are also some excellent local leisure facilities to include an 18 hole Golf Course, indoor swimming pool and sports hall.  The wonderful North Cornish coastline is within 16 miles at Bude, whilst the Cathedral City of Exeter is within an hours drive with access to the M5, mainline railway station and an international airport.
