Located within walking distance of the town square with its amenities including many shops and services, this Grade II listed thatched cottage is ideal as a first time buy, retirement or holiday home. It is directly opposite an excellent flat green bowling club with a great clubhouse which was built and opened in 2017.
The open plan layout to the cottage has maintained many of the original features that would be expected in a house of this age. The kitchen is well designed with integrated appliances (oven/hob/extractor) and solid granite working surfaces, there’s mains gas into the house which is used by the wall mounted fire in the main room and an en-suite shower room serves the first floor double bedroom.
Outside is an enclosed rear garden (approx. 8.5m x 3.5m) which is paved with ease of maintenance in mind, ideal for pots and provides a tucked away seating area. There’s even an outside loo! It is worth noting that there is a rear pedestrian access to the back of the property through the neighbouring garden but there is no right of way over the garden of this property.
There is part of the property that is subject to a flying freehold, not unusual in a cottage like this but you should be aware.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

Upon entering North Tawton from A3072 (De Bathe Cross), proceed into the Town Square. Bear right immediately before the Clock Tower and go straight across the staggered junction into North Street, Honey Cottage, will be found on the left after approx. 200m.
NORTH TAWTON is a small town, built alongside the banks of ‘The River Taw’. Settlements in and around the ‘Taw Valley’ experience a haven-like quality, between the often steep-edged hillsides – a contrast to other areas of more open farmland. The town has a selection of shops, a primary school, The Fountain and The White Hart pubs and an undeniably pretty square. For more choice, by way of facilities the larger town of Okehampton is only 5 miles up the road – where access to the A30 dual carriageway (a link to the City of Exeter) can also be found. North Tawton, as with many Devon towns has a prime medieval church, with a west spire adorned with oak shingles. The town is also known for its superb creamery. The Taw Valley Creamery (est 1974) produces award -winning cheeses, revered locally and nationally.
