Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A traditional farmstead in the foothills of Dartmoor, set in about 18 acres, incorporating one of the area’s most iconic visitor attractions, The Miniature Pony Centre.

Location

Wormhill Farm is situated in the eastern foothills of Dartmoor, an area designated a National Park for its spectacular landscape of open moorland with its distinctive granite tors and the unspoilt hinterland of small fields and woodlands divided by the fast flowing streams and rivers flowing down from the high moor.

The Property lies just to the east of the open moor on the banks of the River Bovey about 3 miles from one of the moor’s principal towns, Moretonhampstead. It is situated beside the B3212, a road which cuts through the centre of Dartmoor from east to west.

From Moretonhampstead, the A382 runs north-south linking to the A30 dual carriageway to the north which gives fast access to Exeter and the M5, and the A38 Expressway to the south, the Exeter to Plymouth road. This also links onto the M5 at Exeter.

Communications to Devon are excellent with the M5 motorway easily accessible at Exeter, which also has an Intercity rail service providing regular trains to Paddington and the Midlands. Exeter Airport has an expanding service and is situated just off the M5 on the east side of Exeter.

For shopping, Moretonhampstead and nearby Chagford provide for day- to- day needs while the Cathedral city of Exeter provides a wider choice. Newton Abbot to the south and Torbay, about 15 miles away, provide further shopping and leisure opportunities.

The area is well served for schools with excellent state and private schools for girls and boys of all ages in Exeter, Newton Abbot and Torbay.

Description

The property comprises a detached 4 bedroomed farmhouse with a selection of modern and traditional buildings that have been sensitively adapted and converted to accommodate a thriving lifestyle business opportunity. The existing buildings include retail space, a restaurant and cafeteria, a 2 bedroom staff flat and office facilities. In addition, the modern barns are currently set up to include a children’s play area, stock yard and stabling.

Surrounded by gently sloping grounds, enjoying far reaching views over the surrounding area, the farmhouse, which is not Listed, enjoys its own private gardens and independent access to the visitor attraction. In recent years, the building has been modernised by the present owners to create a comfortable family home, with accommodation over two floors.

In the heart of the house is the kitchen which is a good size with ample space for a table and chairs and a four oven Aga providing a warm comfortable atmosphere. Both the sitting room and kitchen open through into the south facing conservatory. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, one of which is en suite and two bathrooms.

The traditional outbuildings have been cleverly adapted to provide business space for a visitor attraction based upon miniature ponies. Public and staff access to the buildings is totally separate from the house, providing a useful buffer. The barns could be reused for horses or agriculture subject to planning permission.

The house is situated, together with the buildings, within about 18 acres of paddocks and lakes. The Miniature Pony Centre is completely separate from the private house which has its own drive access. At present the house is an island of tranquillity surrounded by a commercial business and its privacy can either be enhanced or reduced according to the wishes of the owners.

While the existing planning permission is for a visitor attraction, the buildings could be reconverted to agricultural or equestrian use subject to planning permission. Alternatively, future conversion to holiday accommodation may also be possible, subject to the necessary consents.
