Langabeare Barton occupies a private location surrounded by its own land, along with fantastic views south towards Dartmoor National Park. Situated to the south of Hatherleigh, the market town has a good range of local facilities including a small supermarket, garage and various shops, an art gallery and café, post office, veterinary, doctors' surgeries and primary school. A wider range of facilities can be found in the larger town of Okehampton with its excellent range of shops and services, three supermarkets including Waitrose, and a range of national and locally owned shops and businesses. There is a leisure centre and schooling from infant to 'A' level standard. Okehampton enjoys direct access to the A30 dual carriageway providing a direct link west to Cornwall or east to the Cathedral and University city of Exeter. From Spring 2022, direct rail links will be provided from Okehampton to the city of Exeter. The countryside around Hatherleigh is well known for its riding, walking and sporting facilities, with fishing on the Torridge and walking and riding on the Tarka Trail and Granite Way and is often referred to as one of the last remaining truly rural parts of South West England. Dartmoor National Park offers hundreds of square miles of superb, unspoilt scenery and there is easy access to the north and south coasts of Devon with attractive beaches and delightful coastal scenery.INTRODUCTION
Langabeare Barton offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a very private extensive livestock holding which has been used as a beef and sheep farm but could be adapted to a dairy unit with the main farmstead sitting centrally within the holding. Langabeare Barton was of historic importance about 600 years ago during the civil war.
Langabeare Barton farmhouse is a fine character Devon longhouse constructed of cob, brick and stone under a Welsh slate roof. The property sits centrally within the farm surrounded by attractive lawned gardens from where there are outstanding views south looking over the west Devon countryside to Dartmoor National Park.
There is an extensive range of livestock buildings providing accommodation for beef and sheep enterprises and, subject to a programme of redevelopment, these could be adapted to form the basis of a new dairy unit.
The farm land extends to approximately 182.10 acres and comprises a mixture of some arable and pastureland divided into a number of good sized fields which are served by a central farm track. Along with pockets of woodland.LOT 1- LANGABEARE BARTON, BUIDINGS, 182.10 ACRES LANGABEARE BARTON FARMHOUSE
