Middle Hollacombe Farmhouse, a stunning property, created from the ruins of an ancient Devon Longhouse. The immaculate interior combines a welcoming feeling of tradition with clean, stylish and eco-friendly living. The spacious ground floor features two original medieval fireplaces. Upstairs there are three modern en-suite bedrooms with full under floor heating.
The Farmhouse is tucked away in a gentle, secluded valley surrounded by traditional Devon farmland and set within its own landscaped garden. A true rural retreat and yet only one and a half miles from the bustling market town of Credition and nine miles from the cathedral city of Exeter.
Set in glorious countryside between moor and coasts, Middle Hollacombe is in the heart of Devon. The edge of Dartmoor is just 10 miles away, where lush countryside and ancient woodland gives way to the famous moor. From Crediton's historic station, with free car parking, Tarka Line trains run as far as the North Devon Coast at Barnstaple and to Exmouth in the South. There are good walks from a number of stations en- route. Journey time by car to either coast is approximately 40 minutes. The opportunities for walkers and cyclists in the vicinity of the Farmhouse are many and varied; the Coast to Coast footpath passes within two miles of the property.
