Church Farm is set in a very tucked away location on the northern outskirts of the village of Ashreigney, which is set on elevated ground between Exmoor and Dartmoor. The village Church dates from the 15th Century and together with the village hall provides a friendly community. Further amenities are available at nearby villages including Burrington and Winkleigh and the small local town of Chulmleigh has a range of further amenities including schooling to secondary level, health centre and a good range of shops. The larger town of South Molton with its further range of amenities and services is about 14 miles and the regional centre of Barnstaple about 16 miles. The Cathedral City of Exeter is only 26 miles.
There is a regular train link between Barnstaple and Exeter on the Tarka Line with the nearest station about 3.5 miles away at Kings Nympton.

Church Farm is a highly attractive period house presented in very good decorative order and is complimented by an attractive and diverse holding of land comprising beautiful gardens, pasture and woodland and amounting to just over 7 acres in total.
