Situation - Lying on the outskirts of the popular parish of Staverton which is equidistant from both Dartington and Totnes, is Barkingdon Manor. This most charming property is within close proximity to the A38 Devon Expressway with its connections to the main cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the M5 motorway network beyond. The closest mainline railway station is Totnes which has direct links to London Paddington, reachable in well under 3 hours.
The South Devon Railway Company operates a delightful steam train which has a station in Staverton, located next to the River Dart which runs through the village. There is a popular public house, The Sea Trout Inn and a village church. The well regarded Landscove Primary School and St Christopher's Prep School for 2-11 year olds are only a short drive away and it is just a short stroll, across the fields opposite the house, to the village pub, the Live and Let Live Inn, and from there to Landscove Church.
Description - There having been a property at Barkingdon since the Domesday Book. The current house, which remains unlisted, has features which date the house back to the Georgian and Victorian eras. The accommodation is shown on the enclosed particulars and whilst the house extends to over 4,700 ft in total, it does not feel overly large, due greatly to the spacious rooms and tall ceilings.
Available by separate negotiation is the Lordship of Barkingdon otherwise Sparkwell, which affords the Lord and Lady of the Manor, a right to dine in the House of Lords. For further information, please contact the selling agents. Barkingdon Manor is available as a whole which includes the three paddocks, the stable yard and stable barn and an artisan letting unit which extends in total to 3 acres. Alternatively, the house could be bought with just the gardens to the front, the outbuildings to the side and the walled garden the whole of which extends to 0.79 acres and is edged red on the site plan.
Directions - From Totnes, follow the signs to Staverton and after passing over the railway line, take the second left hand turning signed light vehicles only, Hillcroft and Landscove' and continue on this road for over 1 mile. Continue on this road, passing over the speed bumps and take the first left turn signposted for Barkingdon. Continue until Barkingdon Cross and the entrance to the Manor is found on the left hand side.
From the A38 a) Heading West towards Plymouth, take the Buckfastleigh turn off (after the two Ashburton turn offs) and head left for Totnes and Dartmouth or b) heading East towards Exeter, take the Buckfast turn off (the one after the Dean Prior and Buckfastleigh turn off) and turning right at the top of the slip road, cross the A38 and head for Totnes and Dartmouth.
Then: Almost immediately, pass the Dartbridge Inn on your left and after about half a mile, take the Landscove turning to the left up a steep, narrow lane also signposted for Hill House Nursery. At the top of the hill, turn right at the little triangle. Stay on that lane all the way. You will eventually pass the entrance to a small agricultural/business park on the right, then some converted barns and then you will come to two stone gateways on the right. Take the second gateway (without the cattle grid) into Barkingdon.
