The property is only about two miles from the local market town of South Molton which offers an excellent range of facilities and amenities including schooling to secondary level. The property is also only about half a mile from the A361 (North Devon Link Road) which provides excellent motoring access to the regional centre of Barnstaple (10 miles) to the west and also to Tiverton, the M5 (J27) and Tiverton Parkway Railway Station on the Paddington Line.

Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach from the property as are the renowned North Devon coastal beaches of Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe.

Description

Coombe Farm is a very spacious period farmhouse that has undergone an extensive period of renovation, extension and improvement by the current owners since purchasing the property in 2011. The house offers spacious and well proportioned rooms with some fine period features including exposed beams and large fireplaces. In addition the adjoining outbuilding has been converted into an excellent holiday cottage which provides a useful income. There is a good sized outbuilding currently used for storage but with potential for alternative uses (stp).
