Just 2 miles to the east is the popular village of Shebbear with a good range of local amenities including a popular village pub, village shop, mobile post office, Church, (Ofsted judged Good) primary school and the highly regarded Shebbear College (private school). 6 miles to the south west, the historic market town of Holsworthy includes a broader range of shops and services, sports clubs, a Waitrose supermarket, livestock market, hospital and vets. Access to the A30 leading to the M5 and Exeter is at Okehampton.

The farm lies within a ringfence, with the farmstead set back from the road in a private position. As a whole, It offers a wonderful opportunity to create a private family home surrounded by its own 34.91 acres of gently undulating Devon countryside.
