The property is situated on semi-rural outskirts, about half a mile from the centre of Swimbridge, which is generally regarded as a popular village location in which to live and offers community facilities including a public house, primary school, post office as well as parish church. Nearby Landkey offers further amenities including village shop/ post office, coffee shop and further primary school. The property is just 3 miles from West Buckland village and is therefore within the West Buckland school catchment area. Barnstaple, North Devon's Regional centre, is about 5 miles and houses the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues, as well as the North Devon District hospital. Fast road access to the area is provided by the A361, North Devon Link Road, which connects directly with the M5 at Junction 27, where there is also a main line railway station on the London Paddington line at Tiverton Parkway. There is also easy access to Exmoor National Park to the north east, offering excellent walking and riding. The property is also well located for exploring the whole of the North Devon area, including the dramatic coastline which at its nearest lies about 8 miles beyond Barnstaple and includes some of the best beaches in the South West at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe to name but a few.
