SITUATION AND AMENITIES
Set back from a quiet country lane on high ground enjoying fine pastoral views into the valley below, this is an unusual position as the surroundings are leafy and semi-rural yet Petroc Collage, Barnstaple railway station and the town centre are all within healthy walking distance. As the Regional Centre, Barnstaple offers the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues as well as North Devon District Hospital. At Barnstaple there is access to the North Devon Link Road, which runs through in a further 45 minutes or so, to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway and where Tiverton Parkway offers a fast service of Trains to London Paddington in just over 2 hours. Less than half an hour by car are the sought after sandy, surfing beaches at Croyde, Saunton (also with Championship golf course), Putsborough and Woolacombe. Exmoor National Park is a similar distance and more locally the Estuary Village of Instow is about 5 miles also offering beach, cricket club and yacht club. The Tarka Trail is also easily accessible.DESCRIPTION
