If you are looking for property with peace and seclusion, Stags Farm Agency has recently brought to the market a very private farm with 89 acres near to the edge of the Exmoor National Park in north Devon.

Tucked away in a stunning position with no near neighbours, but with riding out on to the open moor, the farm is near to a small hamlet and approximately four miles from the village of North Molton. It is not completely isolated though, as the A361 North Devon Link Road can be accessed within 6 miles.

The farmhouse is Grade II Listed, modest in size, and requires complete modernisation but for those looking for more living space than the three bedroom house, there is an attached stone barn which has the potential to be converted to provide more accommodation, subject to planning and listed building consent.

The house and barn are within a traditional courtyard with further barns including a former threshing barn and lower shippon. To the rear of the house is a level garden which extends to a cider apple orchard, planted approximately 14 years ago and with West Country varieties of cider apples.

The house is surrounded by the farm’s own land, which includes some more productive grass fields for mowing and grazing with good road frontage.

To the north and east of the farmstead are three larger enclosures of improvable pasture land suitable for grazing, running down to a wooded stream, near to which are the remains of a former farmstead, including stone walls, a stone barn and an avenue of beech trees.

Also included with the farm is approximately 8.4 acres of woodland, comprising mostly soft-wood trees sloping down to a stream on its northern boundary.

Andrew Dodds of Stags Farm Agency is handling the sale and commented “those searching for peace and privacy, with excellent outriding and stunning surroundings need look no further”.

The farm is offered for sale as a whole, with a guide price of £995,000. For further information please contact Stags on 01769 572263 or email: farms@stags.co.uk.
