0.95 acre paddock with a field stable and store. Further lots available.
Venn Farm is situated in the Creedy Valley just outside the popular village of Sandford, which has two pubs, including the renowned Lamb Inn, a pre-& primary school, a village hall, a community shop, a post office and a church. The market town of Crediton provides an extensive range of facilities along with a well-regarded secondary school, a sports centre, indoor swimming pool and golf course. The cathedral and university city of Exeter (11 miles) has an extensive range of facilities befitting a centre of its importance. Exeter has two mainline railway stations on the London Waterloo and Paddington lines and its international airport lies about 4 miles to the East of the city.

Venn Farm comes to the open market for the first time in more than one hundred years and offers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase an adaptable family home with outbuildings and land, which together offer much potential, be it for farming or equestrian uses.

Venn Farm formed part of the Creedy Park Estate until 1976, when the current owners father (the then tenant) bought the farm. The farm sits comfortably less than a mile from the popular village of Sandford, yet enjoys a most peaceful and idyllic position with panoramic views across its own land and the undulating hills of the Creedy Valley beyond. In the past the farm has been run as a dairy operation and in more recent years has been home to a successful equestrian operation, thanks in no small part to the wonderful hacking out available in the local vicinity.
