Hellescott Farmhouse is a detached four bedroom former farmhouse, dating from 1889. The property comprises a large sitting room, farmhouse kitchen/dining room, utility room and bathroom on the ground floor with potential. Four bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. Outside is a range of outbuildings and two large lawn areas. The property has mains gas central heating, with radiators in all main rooms.
Hellescott Farmhouse is located in the rural hamlet of Hellescott, part of the wider village area of North Petherwin. Within North Petherwin there is a village hall, church and at nearby Brazzacott a county primary school. To the east of the village on the B3254 Launceston to Bude Road (2 miles approximately) is the popular thatched Countryman Inn public house.

Full social, commercial and shopping facilities are available at nearby Launceston (some 5 miles).  Launceston sits on the A30 dual carriageway spineroad for Cornwall and Devon and provides a good balance of travel distance to all parts of the two counties.

Beyond Launceston the city of Exeter (a further 42 miles) provides Intercity Rail Link, International Airport, and M5 Motorway link.

In all directions from Hellescott there  is scenery of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the east, the wild open spaces of Dartmoor National Park, running south towards Plymouth are the hidden treasures of the Tamar Valley steeped in 18th century mining history and re-knowned for salmon fishing.  To the south west is Bodmin Moor ideal for walking and riding and to the north the rugged North Cornish and North Devon coastlines with surfing beaches and quaint former fishing villages.
