Full description

This superbly presented & improved cottage is found in a quiet village location just 10mins from Crediton & 30mins from Exeter - It has two bedrooms plus a loft room, BRAND NEW Kitchen, Bathroom & boiler (all in 2018) and a charming living room, separate dining room, with a courtyard garden immediately behind and a shared village car park & ‘Glade’ / park with seating area within 100 yards.

Pencroft is a delightful period slate roof cottage situated in this sought-after Mid-Devon hamlet of Penstone, which is just under a mile from the village of Coleford (with the highly regarded New Inn public house), 4 miles from Crediton and just 30 minutes from Exeter. There are some lovely rural walks to be found nearby, and the area is surrounded by some of Devon's loveliest countryside.

The cottage is the centre of a terrace of three and offers deceptively spacious & superbly improved two bedroomed accommodation full of charm and character, having been extended to the rear some years ago. There is a cottage style living room with wood burning stove, a separate dining room and an attached kitchen which was replaced in August 2018 (includes oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge & new flooring). Also replaced were the gas boiler (Vaillant) and the upstairs bathroom, which is styled beautifully and has a shower over the bath and a heated towel rail. An added bonus is a good sized largely converted loft room which has a staircase and double glazed skylight. The property has the benefit of gas-fired central heating (Liquid Propane Gas) and the cottage is uPVC double glazed throughout (aside of skylight).

Outside there is a small courtyard area which requires very little maintenance. There is a right of way across the back of the neighbours courtyard for LPG bottles, refuse and recycling.  A few yards along (50-100) the country lane lies village car park which has ample spaces and the excellent Penstone Glade, which is a lovely community space and provides a very pleasant green area for residents to enjoy. 

Council Tax: B

DIRECTIONS   From Crediton, take the A377 Barnstaple road for about 1.5 miles and turn left at Barnstaple Cross as signed Yeoford and Coleford.  Proceed on for about 2.5 miles down into the village of Coleford and turn left at the crossroads as signed to Colebrooke. Follow this country lane taking the first left turning signed to Penstone. Go under the railway bridge and enter the hamlet, and Pencroft is the 2nd cottage fronting onto the lane on the left.

COLEFORD is a journey back in time, a prime example of a traditional Devon hamlet. It is a designated conservation area, with a whole host of irreplaceable listed cottages and buildings. It is also home to ‘The New Inn’, known locally for its outstanding food. It is no secret that Coleford is a beautiful village – but it is also fit for a king. King Charles 1 is said to have visited Coleford during the civil war, stabling his horses there on the 22nd of July 1644, and inspecting his troops from the porch of Spencer Cottage. The nearest market town to Coleford, for a selection of modern facilities is Crediton – 3 miles to the west.
