ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The cottage is believed to have originally been a Victorian barn, which was apparently converted into two residences at the turn of the 20th century. Constructed of stone and brick, the cottage is rendered and slated. The property offers exceptionally surprising living accommodation with large reception rooms, four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the added benefit of a large workshop/annex to the rear, driveway parking for several vehicles and a westerly facing courtyard garden. The cottage has access permission through a private gate to the woodland surrounding the reservoir and offers the wonderful opportunity for country living at its best.
2 Wistlandpound Cottage is located in the heart of the Exmoor National Park, just a few hundred yards from the truly beautiful reservoir, with walks through the woods and around the lake from the door. The seaside town of Combe Martin is just 4 miles distant with a selection of shops, pubs and activities to suit all the family. The North Devon town of Barnstaple is 12 miles distant and provides all the local facilities, including hospital, doctors, library and numerous shops in the number of retail parks on offer. The North Devon coastal walks and numerous beaches including Saunton Sands, Croyde and Woolacombe are all within easy driving distance. The North Devon link road (A361) also gives good access to the M5 and Tiverton Parkway offers easy and quick rail connections to London Paddington.
