These 3 individual cottages are conveniently located in typically unspoilt rolling countryside between the Taw and Torridge river valleys and from the grounds extensive rural views to Exmoor to the north-east and westwards towards the coastline.
The rural village of Yarnscombe is about a mile, set around its ancient parish church with village hall and good community spirit.
To the north, Barnstaple, 6 miles, the ancient borough and administrative centre for North Devon provides a comprehensive range of both business and leisure facilities including the Green Lane shopping centre, out of town superstores, live theatre, leisure centre, Tarka tennis centre and a Sprinter train service running through to the Cathedral City of Exeter.
The A361/North Devon Link road provides much improved communications to and from the North Devon area, connecting directly as it does through to junction 27 on the M5 motorway of Tiverton where there is also the Parkway railway station from where journey times to London/Paddington are approximately 2 hours.
Within a couple of miles of the property there are leisure facilities with paint ball, laser shooting and quad bikes at South Down, with the town of Great Torrington some 4 miles to the south providing good local facilities and also the Plough theatre, golf course and fishing on the River Torridge and of course the coastline with sailing, surfing and sandy beaches close by at Instow and Croyde.

These 3 individual cottages are set with far reaching countryside views to the west and east from their garden areas. The cottages are formed from an original Threshing Barn and attached buildings converted about 15 years ago to provide 3 cottages, originally for letting purposes which has been the case until recently. Each has its own private courtyard areas and gardens.
The current owners are in the process of changing the services to serve the individual cottages rather than the whole now they are being offered individually this will include new electric central heating.
The properties are 3 cottages the centre being The Threshing Barn, converted from the original threshing barn and still retaining its high vaulted ceiling with Walnut an end terrace to its south and Wrens Nest an end terrace to its north end.
There are private garden areas for each cottage to the south east side and plenty of designated car parking to the north west and all share a common access from the quiet country land approach.
