Woodland Head is a small hamlet between the larger villages of Yeoford and Cheriton Bishop, with the A30 within a short drive so it’s ideal for access to both Crediton and Exeter. It’s worth noting though that it’s away from the main roads so traffic noise certainly isn’t a concern and there are some fantastic views over the surrounding countryside too. It’s the middle of a row of 3 thatched cottages and as one would expect with the history and character, it’s Grade II listed to protect the pretty façade. The house has been a fantastic family home for many years and has a great balance between internal and external space. The surprise when looking at the frontage is the large garden, parking and double garage that are accessed from the rear.

Internally, the house offers spacious rooms with a living room and dining room to the front and the kitchen/breakfast room to the rear. There is super additional space too with a utility and ground floor WC and then a rear porch gives a buffer to the rear. On the first floor, the stairs rise to a landing with access to 4 bedrooms, all having a view and the family bathroom. The house has been well maintained over the years with the thatch being redone in 2010 and the ridge more recently in 2021. There’s oil fired central heating and wood-burning stoves (although these haven’t been used recently) for warmth and some of the windows have been replaced with timber double glazed units, plus there is some secondary glazing.

Outside, the garden is a real feature of the house and overall, the entire plot extends to approx. ¼ acre. At the front is a pretty walled garden giving the opportunity for planting or pots and then to the rear is the main garden. Accessed either from the house or via the gated entrance from the country lane at the back, the garden is a great size and has a large lawn, planted beds and a wide range of plant species which attracts the local wildlife. There’s a summer house, greenhouse and shed plus a large detached double garage and ample parking area. The driveway can be gated off for security and those with children or animals may appreciate being able to open the back door and know it’s safe.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

YEOFORD is a popular village with a lovely community feel, in a gentle valley, 4 miles from the market town of Crediton and linked to Exeter via the Tarka-Trainline or with access to the A30 via Cheriton Bishop.  Yeoford is a busy place with yearly festivals, including “Yeofest” – described by some at the “best little beer festival in Mid Devon”.  In addition, and for those that prefer apples there is “Yeocider”.  The modern community hall hosts yoga, life drawing and crafting classes and the newly refurbished pub “The Duck” which serves great food is also home to the community shop.  The village is a great place for families with its own Primary School, a recently renewed playground and football field, the church which runs coffee mornings and a “Messy Church” plus a nursery called Sweetpea’s, which is currently rated “outstanding across all areas”.   There are lots of great countryside walks too.
