On the edge of the village, the popular Lifton 'Strawberry Fields Farm Shop' offers a restaurant, function suite, 'pick your own' strawberries and shop supplying local seasonal produce. On the adjoining part of Lifton, known as 'Tinhay', you will locate Tinhay Mill Guest House & Restaurant, a petrol filling station and a small industrial estate.

Approximately 4 miles away, Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links (approximately 25 miles). The city of Exeter has rail links, an international airport and connection to the M5 motorway (approximately 38 miles).

The stannary town of Tavistock is located only 20 minutes away which provides excellent shopping facilities including its historic pannier market. 

DESCRIPTION Situated in an established road, behind the main through road in Lifton, lies number 1 North Road, believed to be an early Victorian period house, having a classic balanced façade. With accommodation comprising: entrance hall with a door leading through to a reception room, currently used as a sitting room/study, with focal point fireplace and access through to a wonderful kitchen/dining room, with a stunning range of 'Ash' fronted units, incorporating a Range oven that provides the main focal point to the room. This in turn leads on to the garden, giving both areas a pleasant outlook, with an adjoining utility/cloakroom and access to a formal sitting room, again with focal point fireplace. As is typical of the period, there are decent ceiling heights throughout the ground floor and first floor rooms. Off the first floor landing there is a guest room with ensuite shower room, three further double bedrooms, one lending itself as the master and a stunning shower room with substantial shower, recently fitted and offering that little bit of luxury. Outside, to the right-hand side is a double length driveway with potential for off-road parking for two vehicles. This is gated and leads on to, in turn, to a lawned garden which is walled and is a very pleasant space indeed. To the left-hand side of the property lies an external central heating boiler and an ideal storage for bins etc. The property is offered in extremely good order throughout and would need to be internally viewed to be fully appreciated.
