Set in the heart of Mid-Devon, Cross Cottage is centrally located in the rural village of Poughill, close to Tiverton and Crediton. It sits in an elevated, south-facing position with outstanding views as far reaching as Dartmoor. The gently rolling countryside around the village provides excellent access to public footpaths and bridleways - making it ideal for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits.

Poughill itself has great community spirit with regular events, delicious breakfasts and Sunday roasts held at the village hall. Just down the road in the village of Cheriton Fitzpaine, you'll find a community shop, the well-known Ring of Bells pub and also Thorne's Farm Shop.

The property is ideally situated for a wide range of amenities including banks, building societies, supermarkets, sports facilities, schools (Blundells/Tiverton High) - the local school bus runs past the house - and more. Nearby towns include Crediton (approx 6 miles), Tiverton (8 miles) and Exeter (12 miles). There are excellent road and rail links to London from Tiverton and Exeter St David's Stations. The M5 motorway can be accessed at Junction 30 and 27 (Tiverton).
