The land is situated in attractive Devon countryside approximately mid-way between the village of Highampton, which has a post office/village store, public house, church and primary school, and the popular and well serviced market town of Hatherleigh. Okehampton is approximately 9 miles to the south east and Holsworthy approximately 11 miles to the west. Both Okehampton and Holsworthy have a good level of leisure, shopping and health amenities and both have a Waitrose Supermarket. Access to the A30 is gained near Okehampton, which provides dual-carriageway access to Exeter.
There is good access to an excellent network of paths, lanes and minor roads for horse riding and walking and nearby Dartmoor National Park gives access to a range of outdoor pursuits. The North Devon Coast lies just 20 miles to the north.
The area is popular with tourists, not least due to the adjacent Tarka Trail which follows the disused railway line that runs just beyond the northern boundary. It is a 180 mile, walking and cycling trail traversing North Devon and Exmoor and features the longest, traffic-free cycle route in the UK, as well as providing a convenient off-road access to Hatherleigh.DESCRIPTION
The land comprises 4.80 acres (1.94 hectares) of level, highly productive pastureland.
It is accessed off the minor road leading north from the A3072. Mature hedges surround the land on 3 sides and these provide good shade and shelter.
