SITUATION AND DESCRIPITON
The village of Chillington - a 15-minute or so walk down Coleridge Lane - has a post-office which stocks most essential food and non-perishable items. There is a GP surgery behind which is a small, privately-owned gym, a bakery (Sticky Fingers), a physiotherapist and dog grooming parlour. The local pub, The Bear and Blacksmith, has recently been refurbished and serves good quality food whilst the village hall in Tanpits Lane is only a couple of years old and hosts several different activities during the week.
Within a 30 minutes walk is the village of Stokenham where you will find the Tradesmans Arms and the Church House Inn, both of which serve good food. Stokenham also has a primary school which has a very good reputation. There is a larger primary school in Kingsbridge along with Kingsbridge Community College.
A regular bus service runs through the village along the A379, going east to Dartmouth and west to Kingsbridge and then on to Plymouth.
Coleridge Barns is a small and select development of quality barn conversions originally built in the late 1800s and converted to dwellings nearly 20 years ago. In more recent years, Mariners has been totally refurbished and is now presented to the very highest of standards throughout, with particular features being the stunning dual aspect, open-plan living area on the first floor, and the master bedroom suite on the second floor which incorporates a sitting area, originally designed as a separate bedroom.
With its delightful and easily managed private space and well-maintained communal gardens beyond, the property would make an ideal permanent home or lock up and leave holiday home.
