Virtual Tour

Famed for one of the longest continuous runs of thatched roofs in the south west (maybe England), Morchard Bishop is one of the larger villages in Mid Devon with a thriving community, a primary school, church, an excellent shop and pub plus regular bus connections to Crediton and Exeter (several per day) and the Tarka line (railway) is only 2 miles away too.

The village has a mix of properties with a lot of older cottages so it’s nothing unusual to find a 3 bedroom cottage with plenty of character on the market. However, once you step inside 7 Chulmleigh Road, it starts to become apparent that this isn’t your average cottage. It’s cob and stone construction with a slate roof and isn’t listed. Over the years, the house has evolved to take in previously uninhabited spaces and now offers plenty of space (whilst retaining the character) over four, yes four floors. Entering from the front door brings you into an entrance hall and then on into the living room. With exposed beams and wood flooring, it’s a cosy room with an additional bonus of a wood-burner and then an opening leads into a study or even small dining room which adds flexibility of how this level is used. To the rear of the house are doors to the garden and then stairs lead down to a lower ground floor where the stylish kitchen can be found. The kitchen has bags of character with slate flooring and solid wood worktops and room for a table and chairs plus a separate utility area with space for washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor are two bedrooms and the stylish family bathroom and then up again into a loft conversion where the principal bedroom enjoys superb countryside views from the sky lights, built in storage and exposed roof timbers, all coming together to give a  feeling of a light, spacious retreat!

Outside, the property fronts onto the village road so it has easy access to amenities etc. To the rear is a south facing garden, initially with a seating area and then newly replaced steps down to a pretty garden with a further patio, lawn, an abundance of flowering plants and shrubs and a summer house / store with power. This provides additional space and even has its own seating area from which to enjoy the garden. The garden backs onto fields and is incredibly peaceful. There’s also wood-stores and storage sheds.

MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green.  At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
