The Cattle Shed at West Pristacott Farm is situated within the quiet rural hamlet of Pristacott, amidst North Devon's rolling countryside yet within one mile of the B3232 which links the towns of Barnstaple and Great Torrington.

The village of Newton Tracey lies one mile to the west and has a village pub. Lovacott Primary School is one mile west of here.

Barnstaple lies approximately 6.5 miles to the north and is the area's main shopping, business and commercial hub with access to the A361 North Devon Link Road and also a railway station with services to Exeter on the picturesque Tarka Line.

The north Devon beaches of Instow, Putsborough, Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are all within easy reach by car.

The Cattle Shed provides an opportunity to create your own home in the countryside and comprises a modern detached barn for conversion within a plot of approximately 0.42 acres (0.17 hectares).

There are fine views over the valley to the south and good access back to Barnstaple.

The barn has a steel frame and measures approximately 21.95m x 18.29m and the planning consent is to convert part of this barn to provide three bedrooms, three bathrooms and an open-plan kitchen, dining space and living room. Outside there is provision for a garden and car parking.

Water will be provided from a borehole (located on neighbouring land). The purchaser will pay for all water consumed at the prevailing South West Water rate.

Mains electricity is presently on site but the purchaser will be required to create a new connection.

Drainage: The purchaser will be required to install a new private drainage system.

Planning consent was granted under Class Q (A & B) to convert The Cattle Shed to a dwelling under reference: 66520. The date of approval was 15th May 2019.

All planning documents are available to view on the local authority's website.
