Wheeldon Farm lies on the edge of a deep valley and between a number of villages within the central South Hams. The farm is also within an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and attractive countryside views stretch out in all directions. Good access can be gained to a number of popular towns in the area, including Totnes (7 miles), the nearest beach can be found at Slapton Sands (9 miles) and conveniently placed for access to the A38/Devon
Expressway (5.5 miles). A mainline railway station to Paddington is available at Totnes and international airports are accessible at Exeter and Bristol.

This family owned, small, private estate and holiday letting business has been in the same ownership for over 40 years. Formerly a working farm, the older buildings have been all converted into stylish and characterful homes around a large courtyard, together with one partially converted barn and a swimming pool. A recently created touring park with 16 pitches offers a useful additional income. The property sits in its own land, in all extending to approximately 11.04 acres with open views over unbroken countryside, all the way to Dartmoor in the far distance.

The Farmhouse & Mad Nelly
The farmhouse has been split into two self-contained parts; The Farmhouse and Mad Nelly. Internal connections on the ground and first floors allow it to be run as one large 6 bedroom house if required.

Currently the farmhouse accommodation includes an enclosed entrance porch, two reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room, while on the first floor are 3 bedrooms, two en-suite and a family bathroom.

Mad Nelly provides 2 first floor bedrooms and shower room, 1 ground floor bedroom with en suite, large kitchen/dining room and living room.

The Cottages
All converted from a large courtyard of former barns, well presented in a stylish and characterful style, and all with full residential use, allowing the widest of potential uses including full-time occupation, long term letting, holiday letting or occasional family use.
They comprise:-

The Granary: 2 bedrooms (sleeps 3)
Poppy: 3 bedrooms (sleeps 7)
Monkshood: 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8)
The Barn: 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8)
Foxglove: 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8)
Mad Nelly: (adjoining farmhouse) 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6)
Partially converted barn: (potential for 4 bedrooms, sleeps 8)

Indoor Swimming Pool
Within the courtyard is a separate indoor swimming pool, changing rooms and wc with adjoining wash/laundry room.

Modern Outbuildings
A number of modern outbuildings provide many potential uses, the largest extending to 28,000sq.ft. of virtually open plan space providing excellent potential, subject to the necessary consents, for an indoor equestrian arena. Further to this is a large workshop and open fronted store. A touring park has recently been created on site with 16 pitches all with electrical hook ups. This has instantly proved to be successful addition to the business.

The Grounds
A number of the properties have private gardens or courtyards and the farmhouse has a large surrounding garden. Parking off road is also provided for the properties. The land is made up of two main paddocks, laid to pasture. The remainder is former yards, touring park and modern agricultural buildings. A good deal of space surrounds this area for extra storage and parking, and would suite alternative uses (subject to permissions).

A track running through the farm, formally classified as a "BOAT" (Byway Open to All Traffic) leads down to the beautiful, partially wooded River Avon Valley, giving access to many tracks and footpaths within the valley.

Overall the property amounts to about 11.04 acres.

Private water supply via borehole serving all properties. Back up mains supply connected. Mains electricity (currently installing an LPG generator to supply
electricity and reduce costs). Private drainage.

Agents Note
A detached bungalow lying just to the south of the farm is available for purchase separately, please contact the agent for further information.
