Situation
Glebe Farm is situated on the fringe of the open moor just outside the small village of Gidleigh, on the north eastern side of Dartmoor, between Chagford and Okehampton. The village is known as one of its prettiest, with the fine church of the Holy Trinity and remains of the castle. Dartmoor itself is renowned for its spectacular scenery, with its granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by rushing streams and rivers. There are many opportunities locally for walking, riding and fishing, with almost direct access from the property onto the open moorland.

The stannery town of Chagford is about a 10 minute drive away, providing an excellent selection of local facilities, including shops, restaurants, hotels, health centre and primary school and is made up of a very eclectic community, choosing it as a place to live and work. It hosts the Chagford film festival and the Chagword literary festival. The Northmore Arms pub is about a mile or so away, withthe renowned Gidleigh Park Hotel and restaurant nearby.

There is a full range of cultural, shopping and other facilities available at the Cathedral and University city of Exeter. In Okehampton there is a Waitrose store and there are private schools at both Tavistock and in Exeter.

Communications
Although on the edge of open moorland, travel to the area is extremely convenient with the A30 dual carriageway giving access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. There are railway stations with connections to London from Exeter where there is also an international airport.

Description
As the name implies, Glebe Farm is thought to have ecclesiastical origins and is believed to have been an earlier rectory of the parish. It is now an enchanting, small country house retaining much of its vernacular charm and offering comfortable accommodation that makes the most of its lovely moorland fringe location.

A granite paved path leads to the front of the house where there is a porch, with doorway leading into the hallway with stone paved floor and stairs up to the first floor. The sitting room is cosy, with a fireplace with a granite bressumer beam and an inset wood burning stove. Beyond, the drawing room is an extension to the original house of a different style, with twin aspect tall windows, fireplace with granite mantelpiece and surround and oak floor.
The farmhouse style kitchen is a lovely, welcoming room, with Aga inset into open fireplace with massive granite bressumer beam above and large under-stairs larder with cold shelving.

From the kitchen, a doorway leads to the connecting barn, where there is a back staircase and cloakroom. Within the barn, which is partly floored, there are 4 principal chambers, one of which has been subdivided to make an informal office area . There are large double doors out to the garden and a stable door to stalls, with granite cobbled floor.

Back in the house, the first floor is reached by a straight staircase from the hallway, arriving on a passage landing serving three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, with a walk in airing cupbaord providing storage.

In front of the house there is a granite paved terrace surrounded by shrubs and climbing plants extending out onto the level lawn and beyond, to park railings and the walled paddock, which is bound by an attractive curved stone wall running beside the entrance drive. Beyond again, there is a small Christmas tree plantation, extending to the oak tree fringed boundary wall/bank.

From the parking area in front of the house a spur leads to the rear of the barn where there are two timber lean-to’s, one of which provides garaging and the other a garden shed. The area is enclosed by an attractive stand of sycamore trees enclosing the fenced kitchen garden, with soft fruit cage, extending on to the paddock beyond. The paddock extends to about 3 acres and is enclosed by traditional tree lined hedgebanks, enjoying views out to the moor. It has road frontage and independent access off the lane.
