Outside The property comfortably sits within 4.5 acres of land with a delightful mixture of mature woodland and meadows that boast an abundance of natural beauty and wildlife. The property was a trout farm for thirty two years and has in effect since been run as a nature reserve specializing in nurturing a number of species of butterflies, bees, birds, dragonflies and it is not uncommon to see Roe deer passing through. On rare occasions, badgers and turtle doves can also be spotted. Whilst the current owners have not kept any animals, this has allowed this conservation haven to develop including many different trees such as goat willows, ash, black polar, hazel nut, linden lime, hawthorn, silver birch, wayfaring and golden willow. The grounds are entirely organic and provide a delightful ambiance with wonderful views across Exmoor. Endless amounts of birds, such as woodcocks and partridges, can be spotted. Two stand out features are the gently flowing stream and pond down towards the south boundary. To the front and south, there is a sheltered terrace where you will find two substantial stone and slate farm buildings that offer potential for conversion that could be used as a holiday let or annex. There is also a coal/wood store and workshop to the west side. There is parking for approximately 8 vehicles.
Agent's Notes There is a bore hole, septic tank and the property is thought to date back to the early 17th Century. There is a bus service close by and beautiful beaches are all within easy access.
