Full Details

This delightful Grade II Listed thatched cottage is set within a highly regarded Mid-Devon village with its many amenities within walking distance, we recommend The London Inn for dinner and Church Street Stores is well-worth a visit too!
The vastly improved accommodation retains its character and offers two bedrooms, with the master being a great size with a built-in wardrobe, there’s a WC upstairs too & we believe could be altered to become a shower room if desired.
Downstairs is a spacious yet cosy living room, with the wood-burner offering warmth and a focal point for the room, the dining room adjoins the cottage kitchen, with a bathroom to one side & a lean-to leading to the utility room & store set in an outbuilding. If a shower room was added upstairs, it may be possible to extend the kitchen if desired too (subject to permissions). There is central heating with traditional radiators via an electric boiler and secondary glazing to all windows to the front.
The rear garden (5.71m x 4.36m) faces south/south-west and is a sun trap, it’s paved for ease of maintenance and has a rear gate to a shared footpath. There are wheelbarrow rights of way for the attached neighbour to use to access Fore Street at the lower end of the cottage. There is on-street parking on Fore Street, plus a village car park around 75 yards away.

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.
