SITUATION & AMENITIES
The hamlet of Ashmansworthy is located approximately 2.3 miles of the popular village of Woolsery (Woolfardisworthy). The village offers an excellent range of amenities including primary school, local shop/Post Office, garage, church and village hall. In 2015, the village became famous worldwide after a Californian based internet entrepreneur with family links to the village purchased the derelict former village pub and manor house, which they are currently in the process of renovating. Once complete will become a boutique hotel and gastro pub, together with the popular fish and chip shop that re-opened in 2016. The rugged North Devon Coastline is within easy access approximately 4 miles away at the pretty village of Bucks Mills, as well as some superb walks over National Trust land.
The port and market town of Bideford sits on the banks of the River Torridge and offers a wide range of amenities including various shops, banks, butchers, bakeries, pubs, restaurants, cafes, places of worship, schooling for all ages (public and private) and five supermarkets. There is also access to the Tarka Trail, which affords superb walks or cycle rides that extend beyond Torrington and Barnstaple.
