Where is it?
We are situated in Ashburton just off the A38 main Devon highway from Exeter to Plymouth. We are 1 mile from the main link road but far enough away to feel right in the countryside, the river Dart being a short stroll away and the River Dart Country Park (check it out online) with all facilities and outdoor pursuit centre just down the road.
We have only 1 neighbouring property, the original Farmhouse adjacent to us and the annexe opposite that we are told used to be the cowsheds.
We have lovely views of the fields and hills across Ashburton.
Ashburton town is a 15 minute walk from the house and has a fine selection of shops; antiques, award winning restaurant (Agaric), Bar, Coffee shop/Cafe, Hardware store, post office, supermarket, award winning Fish Deli, Delicatessen with the most fantastic selection of local and national cheeses etc etc....I could go on. Check out the Ashburton website for information - just get the one in the UK not New Zealand!!
There are local pubs and typically Devon country pubs a short drive away and access to take away food; Chinese, Indian, pizza both in Ashburton and environs.
Nearest towns are Dartington, Buckfastleigh, Totnes and Newton Abbot. Main cities Exeter and Plymouth are a 30 minute drive either north or south for main shopping/bars/nightlife.
Nearest coastal access would be Teignmouth and Torbay (the English Riviera!!) or alternatively you can take a boat/steam train along the river Dart to Dartmouth and see the Naval college and quite a few castles along the way - well small ones anyway.
Access to Europe couldn't be easier with Exeter International Airport 30 minutes by car up the motorway. Check out their European Destinations at www.exeter-airport.co.uk
There is a Local vineyard in Sharpham, garden centres/national trust properties all close by (Agatha Christie's house to name one) also Royal Horticultural society gardens.
From here there is easy access to Cornwall south over the Tamar bridge for fantastic beaches between 1-2 hours away.
