Meadowbank Barn can be found in the popular village of Morchard Bishop, set amongst the rolling Mid-Devon countryside, away from main roads and with an excellent community. The village is one of the larger villages and as such, has plenty going on and with many amenities that some other villages just don’t have.
The property was converted approx. 12 years ago and has been used as a Devon retreat by the current owners since then. It has a great feel with plenty of character and a surprising amount of light, particularly on the first floor. It’s a reverse level conversion with a double bedroom, wet-room and store (former garage) on the ground floor and then an open plan living/dining/kitchen to the first floor plus a useful study or even bedroom 2. Further potential is on offer as the store could be incorporated into the barn’s accommodation (subject to permissions) although the store is very useful for bikes/boards etc.
Outside, there is a strip of land which comes with the property, ideal for pots etc but there is no garden with it. There is plenty of on street parking nearby. The drive is owned by the neighbour but Meadowbank Barn has an official right of way for access.
The barn is being sold with no onward chain.

MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green. At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
