Property Description

Additional Information

Quintessentially a Devon dream! If you are looking to move to the country and quite literally get away from it all, this stunning home ticks all the boxes. Imagine sitting out on your patio of an evening enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple whilst filling your senses with all the sights, smells and sounds of rural North Devon. The swalking of buzzards overhead, the clucking of pheasants and crunching of cattle grazing in the adjoining fields give you a real sense of relaxation leaving a beaming smile on your face from ear to ear. With no light pollution, the night sky is vast and on clear night the stars twinkle like diamonds in the sky.

This beautiful home has been lovingly maintained and improved by the current owners over the years and is ready to just move in and enjoy. Full of character, it blends perfectly with modern day living. There is a log burning stove ideal for those cold winter evenings to keep your toes nice and cosy whilst snuggled up on the sofa. For convenience there is a ground floor shower room as well as a well-appointed first floor bathroom. The best way I think to describe the feeling of this stunning home is to liken it to a child’s security blanket, it wraps itself around you making you feel safe and content. In addition for those that need to work from home or have home hobbies there is a really handy outside studio that enjoys floods of natural light and even has its own separate toilet. Across the driveway there are three stone built barns as well as a carport to house your car, garden tools or furniture.

Locally there are lots of things to explore. Within just a few miles you have the Plough arts centre / theatre, Dartington Crystal and The Royal Horticultural society gardens "Rosemoor". Within a few more miles you can find yourself on the Tarka trail, a footpath/cycle way mainly built on the bed of a disused railway where all the gradients are gentle. It winds its way through some stunning woodland along the course of the River Torridge past Beam Weir, where Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter was born, from which the trail gains its name. It continues past Bideford and along the coast to Barnstaple where it splits and one leg turns inland again following the portion of the railway which is still in use the other continues on the bed of the disused railway and onto Ilfracombe. Both Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks are within an hour’s drive away. The closest coastline is only a 12 mile drive and is very popular with surfers and body borders alike.

I could keep waxing lyrical about this beautiful home and surroundings but there is no substitute for taking a look in person. I strongly urge you to take the time to experience it for yourself and would love the opportunity to meet with you there to help embed what you see on paper in the flesh.


From Torrington proceed in a southerly direction on the A386 signposted Hatherleigh/Okehampton. After approximately 4 miles, pass Specott Barton Farm on your right and then proceed a little further where Cross Park Cottage will be found on your left hand side just before the bend. Continue on the road toward the Chapel on the hill where just before hand take the turning right on the bend. Continue down the lane where the cottage will be found after a short distance on your left hand side.
