18th Century Farmhouse, near Parracombe (LOWERDMA)


This spacious wing of an attractive 18th Century farmhouse is located in a pretty Exmoor Hamlet close to the village of Parracombe and equidistant to the popular Exmoor coastal villages of Lynton and Combe Martin. This lovely property is very comfortably furnished and is ideal for families and couples with great amenities including three bedrooms and four bathrooms and with a private hot tub for that added luxury. This is a wonderful area for walkers with an abundance of footpaths close by and easy access to spectacular coastal paths in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This quiet location is a peaceful retreat after a day out exploring the surrounding Exmoor countryside by foot, horseback or car. However if you are looking for sandy beaches there are small coves within a short drive and the large sandy surfing beaches of Woolacombe Bay are only a 20 minute scenic drive. With two interconnecting lounge areas, multi-generational family groups will appreciate this additional space with each offering comfy seating for 5 and one with a wood burner in large inglenook fireplace. An attractive dining room is adjacent to a newly fitted and well-equipped kitchen and these are great facilities for formal evening meals or leisurely breakfasts whilst making plans for the day ahead. Completing the ground floor area is a newly fitted shower room adjacent to an external door which opens out onto a fully enclosed stone patio with hot tub for 5. Three good sized and attractive bedrooms and a family shower room are on the first floor. A double with ensuite shower, a family room with twin beds plus bunks and a further double room which leads through to a single bedroom area and ensuite facilities. A small fully enclosed garden can be found at the front of the farmhouse and a large elevated lawned garden area (steps access) offers beautiful countryside views. Visitors have shared use of a table tennis table in an adjacent barn and with the owners riding stables next door why not take advantage and explore this special part of North Devon on horseback. Young and not so young riders are welcome and lessons can be arranged (all at an extra charge). This spacious, attractive and well appointed property will not disappoint and will soon become a firm favourite with visitors to Exmoor and North Devon .

From Tavistock and the rivers Tavy and Tamar to the English Riviera of Torbay, and the nautical town of Dartmouth north across Dartmoor (with its famous miniature ponies) to the surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, there can be few counties in England that offer such a broad spectrum of experiences to the visitor. 

Located in the South Westerly reaches of England, Devon shares a southerly border with Cornwall, and an easterly border with Somerset and Dorset. To the north and south the Bristol and English channels provide miles of beautiful coastline, and numerous attractions to the county. 

Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty (5), National Parks (2) and many other parks and reserves make it very easy to get off the beaten track, but the cities of Plymouth and Exeter are as modern and vibrant as they come.

Inland are a number of country landscapes to explore; Tarka Country to the north, taking its name from a famous novel, offering the Tarka Trail; a fantastic cycle route through the beautiful country landscapes. Centrally, Dartmoor National Park is the largest open space in South England, and offers miles of rugged and wild moorland for keen walkers to explore.

Dartmoor Zoological Park is situated on the edge of the moor. The zoo is the inspiration behind a Hollywood film, and home to an impressive range of exotic animals. Along the south coast is the spectacular Jurrasic Coast World Heritage Site, reaching from Exmouth along into Dorset, and offering a spectacular coastline to discover.

Further south along the coast is the borough of Torbay, home to some of Devon’s most popular seaside resorts and tourist spots, and known as the English Riviera. Devon’s county town is the attractive city of Exeter, offering a mix of historical and modern architecture and culture. To the south is the University City of Plymouth, a historic port, and home to The Hoe, a popular public open space offering a range of attractions.   

Devon is the third biggest county in the UK by area, but it's quite easy to get around. In population, it is only the twelfth largest, so it's really not very crowded! Geographically and in spirit quite unlike the neighbouring counties, Devon is characterised by the granite structure that forms Dartmoor rising out of its distinctive red soil, and the very different Devonian rock structure underlying Exmoor. The Devonian geological period was actually named after Devon since it was here that these rocks were first studied. 

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
