Located right beside the church of St Swithuns in the pretty Mid-Devon village of Sandford, this is an end terrace cottage away from the road and an ideal get away from the hustle and bustle. Sandford is a lovely village with a community shop, primary school and two pubs plus as it is less than 2 miles from Crediton, it is well located for the town and indeed Exeter.
The cottage has been let for a few years and is now offered for sale with no onward chain. It would benefit from some cosmetic improvement but there are good sized rooms, double glazing and a wood-burner too. On the ground floor is a living room and to the rear a good-sized kitchen. On the first floor is a double bedroom and a large bathroom with separate bath and shower and up again is a loft room with plenty of character and a large airing cupboard.
Outside, there is an adjoining store shed but this cottage doesn’t have a garden, however, with plenty of open countryside and two pubs with beer gardens in the village, there are options nearby!
Agents Notes: The cottage is over 3 floors and has been this way for many years (prior to current ownership which is since 2001) and therefore may not be to 2020 building regulations – this is an old building and is sold as is so please bear this in mind.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.
Council Tax: B (Mid Devon)

SANDFORD is a civil parish and village 1½ miles north of Crediton, with a historic 12th Century Church. It has an old -world feel, with slender twisting streets, flanked by antique thatched cottages – displaying a menagerie of “Beatrix Potter” style perennial gardens. At the village heart sits a 16thCentury Post House, enshrined by creepers – this is now ‘The Lamb Inn’, an award winning pub/ restaurant; with a rustic aesthetic and cheerful spirit. Featured in ‘The Daily Mail’s – 20 Best British Country Pubs’ (2015). Across the way from here is the shop/ post office, run by the local community. Community is something that underpins every aspect of Sandford, including the local sporting events. Residents have a choice of things to do: such as joining the village cricket, tennis, football and rugby clubs. For the kids, Sandford has a highly sought after pre-school and a primary school (known for its classic Greek-style architecture). Older ones fall within the direct catchment for Q.E.C.C. in Crediton (with an Ofsted “outstanding” Sixth Form). Sandford is linked to Crediton via a footpath, then runs through the Millennium Green on the outskirts of the village – past a wildflower meadow, herb garden, over a crystal stream, yonder tilled fields to a little copse at the town’s-edge.
DIRECTIONS : Enter Sandford from Crediton and proceed up Rose and Crown Hill and bear right (not into the square) and continue up the hill. Pass the Church on your left and Rose cottages are immediately after the church, set back on the left up a short cobbled drive. No 3 is at the right hand end of the row of 3 cottages.
