Property Description

Additional Information

If you?re looking for a change of life style and an escape to the country to get away from it all then Fernhill can offer you this and much, much more. This beautiful detached farm house set in 24 acres of its own land being a mixture of pasture land, woodland and formal gardens which offers some simply stunning views across the Torridge Valley, especially from its most elevated spots.

You immediately have a beaming smile on your face as you approach on the long private driveway. You are often greeted by the owners geese and ducks as you near the house conjuring up memories of the television programme, "the darling buds of May" for those that can remember it. On my first visit to the house that was enough to know I was entering something special. The house itself is elevated from the road allowing for you to best enjoy the views both inside and out. Ferhill has enjoyed many improvements over the years with several additions to the original footprint as well as internal modernisations that are sympathetic to the character of the building. As you would expect in an older building there are several fireplaces two with log burning stoves to help keep you nice and cosy in those long winter nights whilst enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple. The home offers a fantastic family space with plenty of room for expansion or entertaining. All bedrooms are double in size, the master of which boasts an ensuite bathroom whilst a fantastic sized family bathroom provides facilities for family and guests alike.

As lovely as the house is, for me, moving to the country is all about enjoying the fresh air and the glorious Devon scenery There is nowhere better than what is on offer here. The owners whilst working the land with their livestock have created some lovely tranquil spaces including a beautiful walk through their very own enchanted wood. As you ascend to its highest point to the top of the far paddock they have created a lovely seating area to enjoy the best of that view, a wonderful space to picnic watching the sun set over your own little world. Stay there long enough into the evening the night sky is a sight to behold. On clear nights without any light pollution around, the stars sparkle like diamonds dancing around in the moonlight. In total there is 24 acres, 11 of which is pasture land, 11 woodland with 2 acres of gardens surrounding the house.

Location is also king when considering a move. Fernhill whilst being away from it all is only a very short drive to the nearest market town of Great Torrington and the beauty of RHS Rosemoor. The coast is only a 20 - 25 minute drive and for those looking for something a bit more rugged, Dartmoor National Park is only 40 minutes to the South. Ticking boxes aside, it is in my experience that the feel of a home is what will make you buy it. Only by visiting Fernhill you will know if it's "the one". I strongly urge you to take the time to experience it for yourself and would love the opportunity to meet with you to embed what you see on paper in the flesh.


From Torrington proceed in a Southerly direction on the A386 signposted Hatherleigh/Okehampton and at the bottom of the hill turn left onto the A3124 signposted Winkleigh/Exeter. Stay on this road passing RHS Rosemoor on your right hand side before passing through a wooded area. After a short distance the entrance to the drive can be found clearly marked with a name plate.
