The village itself is well known for its striking rugged cliffs and coves, situated on the dramatic North Devon Coastline and on the western fringes of Exmoor National Park. A regular bus service provides access to Braunton, Ilfracombe, Minehead and Regional Centre of Barnstaple, which is about 11 miles to the south and 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 A361 North Devon Link Road which leads on to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway, in about 45 minutes and where Tiverton Parkway also offers a fast service of trains to London, Paddington, in just over two hours. North Devon's famous surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe, are all within about ½ an hour by car.

Understood to date originally from the 15th Century but with an extended Georgian front, Hammonds House is a unique Grade II listed family home and is certainly a rare commodity. The accommodation boasts many original features and is deceptively larger than it would appear from the outside. the property also offers an attractive front courtyard and a wall enclosed mature, south facing rear garden with ample seating space, an assortment of plants and shrubs throughout and a converted old stable/summer house. This certainly is a property which needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The accommodation with floorplan and approximate dimensions comprises;

ENTRANCE HALL with slate flooring, door to DINING ROOM/RECEPTION ROOM 2 original sash window to front with shutters, spacious cupboard/larder LIVING ROOM original sash window looking out to the front, original stone fireplace with slate hearth and wood burner, carpeted flooring, split room which opens through to SNUG/STUDY secondary stone fireplace with slate hearth, double glazed window looking over the rear garden, under stairs cupboard and space for coats, boots etc. DOWNSTAIRS WC tile flooring, painted walls, WC and sink, radiator.

The kitchen itself has tiled flooring, original ceiling beams, ample wall and base units with solid stone worktops, gas oven with extractor hood over, space for fridge/freezer, Belfast sink with drainer and space for washing machine and dishwasher.

To the front there is a period stone wall linked by wrought iron railings with central pedestrian gate and slate stepping stones leading you to the front door surrounded by a variety of plants and shrubs. The rear, the sunny, south facing garden is enclosed and private. There is a garden store/workshop and a further stone outbuilding which we understand is 'the old stable' which has now been converted into a summer house/study. There are areas of green but mainly paved and gravelled along with vegetable garden and ponds which are all surrounded by an assortment of mature plants, shrubs and trees, a real gardeners dream. There is also a Timber built Pergola which has been created by the owners, ideal for Al-fresco dining.

All mains services. Gas fired central heating. Freehold, Council Tax band D.

On reaching Combe Martin with your back to the sea, proceed up the high street, for about half a mile, past the Pack O Cards on your right. Pass the turning to Barnstaple, also on your right and Hammonds House will be found next to the George and the Dragon public house/restaurant.
