Lapford is a Mid-Devon village of two parts, the first is Lapford Cross, adjacent to the A377, it is ideal for transport links including road and rail with regular bus and train services to Barnstaple and Crediton/Exeter and there’s a petrol station/shop too. The main part of the village is just up the hill with stunning views and a great pub!
Planning has been sought under Mid-Devon reference 23/01460/FULL for a one bedroom detached bungalow on this garden site. Access is via the shared drive (to be kept clear for other users) and then the new property will have its own parking. The layout is for a one bedroom bungalow although it may be that a new owner seeks permissions for a new internal layout if preferred. There’s an opportunity to buy the site alone and build the bungalow and live there, rent it out, sell it but with the two bedroom cottage opposite the plot also for sale, it may suit those looking for two properties on one plot.
As usual, all enquiries regarding services should be made to the relevant suppliers and the sale of the plot will be done on a subject to planning basis should the sale run quickly.
Please note that the plot is for sale as part of the sale of the cottage too so preference may be made to those looking to buy both.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

LAPFORD is a large village, beyond Morchard Road on the A377 – 9 miles from Crediton and 16 miles from the City of Exeter. Like most Devon parishes, it’s not far from a lovely collection of trees – Eggesford Forest is just up the way, a regal coniferous plantation that plays host to variety of creatures including adders, butterflies, buzzards and woodpeckers (and badgers!). The village itself has a primary school with an excellent Ofsted report, sizeable playing fields (with a football pitch and kid-friendly playground) and a busy pub – The Old Malt Scoop Inn, once a 16th Century coaching inn – which now offers an à la carte dining experience, using only the best local produce.
