What an opportunity to purchase your very own farm in Devon with views over the surrounding countryside and to Dartmoor beyond. Located less than a mile from the popular village of Spreyton, and with great access to the A30, it’s an ideal base from which to enjoy the county.
A long private lane gives access to the main farmhouse, a 5 bedroom grade II listed property with an adjoining cob barn (annexe potential) and a selection of further buildings including traditional barns and some large modern barns. The house has gardens surrounding and would make a wonderful home.
The farmhouse itself is part way through a renovation but still functions well as a home, just with some parts unfinished. A central hallway gives access to the dining room which in turn opening into a living room. The current kitchen will become a further reception and the new kitchen has been stripped out and part rendered ready for a new kitchen to be installed. There’s a new utility room in the old dairy (again, park rendered and not fitted out). On the ground floor there’s also a WC, office/boot room and a large 3 door garage which can be accessed internally from the house. On the first floor are 5 bedrooms and a bathroom plus a separate WC. The main bedroom is large and has a shower unit in the corner but there’s room for an en-suite. 4 or the 5 bedrooms have southerly views over the garden and land.
As mentioned, the house isn’t finished but it’s worth noting that an idea of the costs of windows and rendering can be provided. There is a fully working ground source heat pump for heating the house installed plus solar panels to the roof (income approx. £1100 per annum) meaning the house has good eco credentials for a house of this type.
The adjoining cob barn (not listed) would be ideal to seek permissions to either extend into or create an annexe or holiday let with the character and space on offer.
The remainder of the barns are a mix of traditional and modern buildings which would suit a variety of uses. There’s spurs off the private lane to these barns meaning excellent access without encroaching into the farmhouse layout.
The land is ringfenced, totals approx. 36 acres (an additional 19 acres available by separate negotiation) and is mainly south-facing pasture land. There are some small areas of woodland too. The land can be accessed from the lane or secondary green lane.

SPREYTON is a pastoral village, a whisker to the north of Dartmoor National Park. The lands here are high and open, with sweeping views, dry stone walls and roving winds. The village is legendary for its connection to the cherished character ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’ of Devon folklore. It is thought that his infamous trip to Widecombe Fair (from the song) may have started in what is now the Tom Cobley Tavern – a family run pub, with a distinctive thatched bar and winner of the 2016 (and 2015) ‘Exeter and East Devon’s CAMRA Rural Pub of the Year’ award. Supposedly, the local churchyard is also the final resting place of ‘Tom Cobley’ – but who really knows?
Spreyton primary school is a mile from the house and, though a small school, benefits from attentive, dedicated teachers. Bow Community Primary school, just three miles away, has a larger cohort and boasts a swimming pool and excellent teaching and facilities. In terms of Secondary Schools, there are school bus routes through the village for both Queen Elizabeth in Crediton and Okehampton College. For amenities there is a friendly, well-stocked community run village shop. Spreyton is a vibrant village with a thriving community and many classes, clubs and sporting facilities.
