Harbertonford is a pretty and unspoilt village situated on the banks of the river Harbourne, which follows through Harbertonford into Bow Creek and onward towards Dartmouth.

The village offers a primary school, a church, a village hall and a store/Post Office. The town of Totnes on the River Dart is approximately 3 miles away, being a popular medieval market town with narrow streets and a Norman castle. The town has a creative spirit, as characterised by its unique range of shops and cafes.

Totnes has both primary and secondary schools, supermarket and is approximately 7 miles away from the junction to the A38/Devon Expressway, allowing for speedy access to Plymouth and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport. Totnes also has a mainline railway link to London Paddington.


The house was built by a well-regarded local builder approximately 28 years ago and has been a superb family home for the vendors in that time. The house occupies a prime position at the end of a private road, which is shared by the three properties. With its large garden adjoining the River Harbourne, the house will attract many potential purchasers seeking a peaceful and tranquil property.
