SITUATION & AMENITIES
Driftwood is part of a complex of 10 luxury barn conversions developed in 2007 from former agricultural buildings and is located in the heart of the Hartland peninsula with both fabulous countryside views and sea glimpses. The buildings have retained as much of the original look and charm as possible, having been sympathetically converted to create a selection individual properties each with gardens and parking. The property is situated on the outskirts of the highly sought after village of Hartland within approximately half a mile of the South West Coastal Path which affords excellent walks with stunning views over the North Devon coastline. Hartland village with its thriving community offers excellent local amenities including several character Inns, Post Office, general stores, primary school, health centre and places of worship. In addition, the picturesque historic cobbled fishing village of Clovelly is 6 miles away with Inns, shopping, museum, craft workshops and Quay. The towns of Bideford and Bude are both approximately 15 miles away, offering extensive facilities including banks, supermarkets, leisure facilities, amusement parks including The Big Sheep and The Milky Way, and other amenities.

Tiverton Parkway station, which offers regular intercity services, is adjacent to Junction 27 and also allows access to London Paddington in around 2 hours.DESCRIPTION
