Bodmiscombe is a small hamlet, on the western edge of the Blackdown Hills, near the villages of Blackborough and Ashill. Ashill provides a popular Inn, church and village hall, whilst the larger village of Uffculme offers further amenities including a secondary school, post office and general store. The nearby market town of Honiton has supermarkets, banks and a main line station on the London Waterloo line.

The M5 is easily accessible at J27 (Tiverton) and J28 (Cullompton), providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway and Bristol and Exeter International Airports provide a number of domestic and international flights.


The Old Farmhouse is a delightful former Victorian farmhouse with the architectural symmetry and proportions typical of this period. Attached at the rear to a converted barn, the house faces south west over the garden and enjoys a rural view in the distance. Much of the charm has been retained, along with new materials and modern attributes, including kitchen, carpets, exposed floorboards and double glazed windows. Over recent years the property has served as a successful rental property.


The garden room serves as the front entrance and opens to the entrance porch. The recently fitted kitchen has plenty of space for a dining table and family living with a range of shaker style units beneath an oak effect work surface, integrated cooker and space for appliances. Both overlooking the front garden, the two reception rooms benefit from wood burning stoves with timber surrounds. The service rooms include a utility room with space and plumbing for laundry appliances, a shower room and a rear hall giving access to a useful covered courtyard.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom fitted with a white suite and large airing cupboard.


From the road is a private gated access opening to the gravelled parking area. The front garden is laid mostly to lawn enclosed by walls and hedges, with magnificent magnolia tree. From the paved terrace to the side a door leads into the covered courtyard, which is open to one side with brick pillars and houses the oil fired central heating boiler. This is a useful storage area which leads on to the private, gravelled side courtyard garden where the oil tank can be found.
