Situation
North Bradbury Farm is attractively and privately set at the end of an access drive within its own land, and is surrounded by open fields. The property is only two miles from the very popular village of Chittlehampton, which offers village shop and Post Office, The Bell Inn public house and church. The market town of South Molton is about 3.5 miles to the east and offers a good range of shops, facilities and amenities including schooling and banking as well as a twice weekly pannier market. The regional centre of Barnstaple is about 10 miles, and offers the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues. Other sporting and leisure pursuits are close at hand and North Devon's renowned coastline provides water sport opportunities and walking country in abundance. The Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach.
The A361 (North Devon Link Road) bypasses South Molton and provides an excellent link to Tiverton and the M5 at junction 27 where there is also a station on the London Paddington line.

Description
North Bradbury Farm is centred on an attractive Grade II listed farmhouse believed to date from the 17th Century. The house is well presented throughout and has an abundance of character typical of its era. The traditional farmstead is set to the rear of the house and includes two excellent, self-contained holiday cottages, further traditional buildings and an adaptable modern building. In addition, there are front gardens and swimming pool, stabling and paddocks. The house is set in a fine, south facing position with a wonderful outlook over its own land.

The REAR HALL has a tiled floor, door to rear and door into the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM with tiled floor, painted pine kitchen units including central island unit.

Adjacent to the garden is an outdoor SWIMMING POOL (40' x 12') with astroturf surround and a stone building housing the boiler/pump room and changing room with WC and hand basin. Outside shower.

The Holiday Cottages
The cottages are set across a yard to the rear of the farmhouse and were skilfully converted from a traditional barn by the current owners to form two holiday cottages as follows:

THE STABLES - A decked area to the rear and a stable door lead into an open plan SITTING ROOM/KITCHEN with timber floorboards and shelved recess. The kitchen is fitted with a modern range of units with timber worktop over. Fitted electric cooker with hood over and tiled splash back, fitted dishwasher, fridge and stainless-steel sink with mixer tap and matching wall mounted cupboards. CLOAKROOM Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where there are TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a well fitted BATHROOM with a modern suite.

THE CIDER BARN - A decked area to the rear and a stable door lead into a double aspect LIVING ROOM with timber floor. Steps lead down to a KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM fitted with a range of modern units with timber work top over. Stainless steel sink unit, fitted electric cooker with hood and tiled splash back, fridge and dishwasher. Downstairs to the lower ground floor there is a DOUBLE BEDROOM, CLOAKROOM with close coupled WC and pedestal wash basin and a BATHROOM fitted with a modern suite.

The cottages are internally linked by a door that enables them to be let as a larger, 3-bedroom unit.

To the rear of both cottages is an area of raised decking, a gravelled parking area and an area of lawned garden.

Attached to The Stables is a former barn utilised as a small games room and laundry area with a Belfast sink, plumbing for washing machine and drying area. An oil-fired boiler provides domestic hot water and central heating to both cottages. Attached to the side of the games room is a further barn currently used as a farm produce store.
Opposite the cottages is an enclosed, children's play area.
North Bradbury Farm was until recently run as a very successful holiday business and was recommended as one of the best farm stay holidays in the UK by a national newspaper.

Outbuildings
Outbuildings include a very adaptable CLEAR SPAN BUILDING (60' x 45') with a concrete floor, power and light with an attached lean-to LAMBING SHED (60' x 17'6").
There is stone/cob FEED STORE/TACK ROOM (18'4' x 12') with a further L shaped BARN providing loose boxes, chicken housing as well as 3 STABLES (18'6" x 11'4"), (15'6" x 11'1") and (15'2" x 11'3").
Adjacent to the boot room of the farmhouse is an open fronted LINHAY/CAR PORT (22'7" x 17'7).

The Land
The land at North Bradbury mainly comprises attractive, stream bordered pasture land leading away from the farmstead with smaller, fenced paddocks to the rear of the stables and cottages. There is a former manege and a further area of orchard. In the main field there is a purpose-built children's adventure playground. Set to the other side of the lower part of the access lane is a further area of pasture with pond and stream. In total North Bradbury Farm extends to about 5.99 ACRES.
