Gamekeeper's cottages are traditionally tucked away deep in the heart of the countryside in what are now some of the most sought after country locations. Horraslew is certainly no exception to this rule as in the past it was the home for the keeper to the Buckland House with records going back to the 18th Century. It has been totally transformed by the present vendors over the past 20 years to a very large and welcoming family home briefly comprising: Entrance Porch/Boot Room, 25ft Sitting Room, Dining Room, 22ft Open Plan Kitchen/Breakfast Room/Living Room, and Utility with Cloak/Shower Room. The First Floor Landing serves 5 Bedrooms, and Family Bathroom.

The surrounding unspoilt countryside still benefits from the legacy of the Buckland House estate, with strategically planted woodland and other former estate properties including lodges, and pretty cottages. The parish of Buckland Filleigh has a small but thriving community, a well supported village hall, a residential home, and a wealth of footpaths. The nearby village of Shebbear is well known for its public school, Shebbear College, and also has a Primary School. The town of Holsworthy with its good range of local shops, services, Waitrose supermarket, schooling, and recreational facilities is some 10 miles away. The market town of Hatherleigh is some 8 miles away. The market town of Great Torrington is some 9 miles distant and caters well for its inhabitants with a comprehensive range of local shopping facilities, schools, banks, post office, and parks etc, together with leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, and nearby 9 hole golf course. Okehampton has a wider range of shops, services, recreational, educational and leisure facilities, supermarkets, hospital, and access to the A30 dual carriageway. From here, the Cathedral City of Exeter is some 23 miles way with its motorway, rail, and air links. The countryside immediately around the property boasts many opportunities for riding and walking, with the nearby River Torridge well-known for its excellent fishing. Barnstaple is some 18 miles, and the port and market town of Bideford is some 12 miles. Bude on the North Cornish coast with its sandy surfing beaches is approximately 20 miles away.

Directions
From Holsworthy proceed for approximately 4.5 miles on the A3072 Hatherleigh road and upon reaching Brandis Corner turn left, and proceed along this road following the signs to Shebbear for some 4.5 miles. Upon reaching Battledown Cross turn right signed Buckland Filleigh. (If you reach Shebbear College you have overshot Battledown Cross by approximately 0.25 miles). Follow this road for 0.5 miles, and upon reaching Sedgewell Cross proceed straight across signed Buckland Filleigh. After passing Buckland House on the right hand side, take the first stone lane turning on the left (approximately 0.5 miles from Sedgewell Cross) and, proceeding with care, after 0.5 miles the property will be found on the left hand side. Please note, the stone lane may not suit "low profile" vehicles.
