Coombe Barton is about 1 mile north of the small village of Roborough, with a church and pub, in the heart of North Devonís beautiful rural countryside, surrounded by open fields. The property is tucked away in the folds of this rolling landscape hidden at the end of an unassuming drive. The cathedral city of Exeter is about 30 miles away and the M5 and Tiverton Parkway Station (J27), via South Molton (13 miles) are about 37 miles away. The well appointed village of Dolton, approximately 4 miles away has a small supermarket, post office, butcher, three pubs, church, an electrical shop and local bus service. Coombe Barton is within the delivery areas of major supermarkets.

The area is famous for hunting, shooting and fishing. The coast which is renowned for its surfing beaches is about 17 miles to the north where there are spectacular coastal walks. Libbaton Golf club is 4 Miles away with further golf courses at Westward Ho! and Saunton Sands. Shopping is excellent at Exeter, Bideford, Barnstaple or South Molton.


Coombe Barton, Listed Grade II* and thought originally to have been built c. 1500, subsequently altered most recently in the 19th Century, comprises the main house and its dependent former farm buildings forming a most attractive group discreetly situated beside the wooded valley of the brook.

The drive from the public lane arrives at a handsome gated splay with stone flank walls marking the entrance to the property. The drive then descends to a parking area adjacent to the house, cottage and outbuildings. A gate in the garden wall leads up an enticing path to the entrance to the house. In the opposite direction a gate way beside the stone range of barns leads to the private area for The Byre, imaginatively converted from a former farm building into a one bedroom annex/ holiday let. The house and outbuildings are surrounded by the beautifully designed and maintained gardens that include a duck pond, walled areas, paved and decorated terraces, orchard, lawns and a newly created series of raised vegetable beds.

The former farm buildings have all found a modern use with them larger barns providing ample storage, a two storey studio, garaging, potting shed and wood store.   Beyond the immediate gardens there are three small paddocks (totalling about 2.5 acres) and beyond again the deciduous woodland that forms either side of the gentle valley of the brook.
