Located in the heart of Mid Devon, Lapford is one of the larger villages with a great community and has the advantages of both rail and road links within a walk of the village centre. There is a great pub serving local wares and a petrol station nearby doubles as a convenient local shop. So, it has the country location, without the isolation, making it attractive to those looking for a retreat! There’s no onward chain with this property.
The cottage itself is Grade II listed and is of cob construction with a thatched roof. The property is empty and could do with some updating but has plenty of features and character that one would expect from a house of this age and style. There are two bedrooms on the first floor and on the ground floor is a living room, kitchen, rear hall and shower room.
Outside, a cobbled path leads to the front door, passing a well-stocked front garden setting it back from the village road. To the rear, there is a lawned garden, again with an abundance of plants, and a paved pathway. There is a right of way across the very end of the garden which could be fenced off and this gives rear access to the garden without the need to go through the house.
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.
DIRECTIONS : When entering Lapford from the A377 at Lapford Cross, proceed up the hill and bear right, passing the entrance to Highfield on your right. Continue for another 100m and you will see a couple of thatched cottages on your left and you’ve reached your destination.
