Burrow Farm is a beautiful stone-built detached house which dates back to 1847, it is found in a lovely rural position and includes 9 acres in total, with fantastic views in nearly every direction, it is set off a quiet country lane, but with easy access Bow (1 mile) & North Tawton (2.5 miles).

The spacious and superbly presented accommodation extends to 244sqm / 2,627sqft and includes four double bedrooms, served by a shower room & a beautiful bathroom with a freestanding four clawed roll top bath as the centrepiece, plus LED uplighters & downlighters and his & her sinks. Two staircases would enable two families to live side-by-side with just a shared kitchen if desired, but is currently setup to flow as a large family home at present.

Downstairs we have a living room with wood-burning stove, a dining room with an open-fire, plus a stunning farmhouse kitchen breakfast room with a centre island, slate floor tiles & granite worktops, oil-fired Aga, Neff induction hob, twin oven, coffee machine, microwave & Miele washing machine & tumble drier all integrated. Separately there is a utility room with downstairs WC, two studies side-by-side and a rear reception room. The house is unlisted and includes oil-fired central heating & double glazing throughout, plus solar PV panels which are owned outright & received index linked payments via the feed-in tariff.

OUTSIDE : The house has masses of off-road parking, the fenced main garden measures 31m x 23m, it is largely level & lawned and is surrounded by its own land, there is also a hard standing & power for a hot-tub. There is also a kitchen garden (34m x 23m) with fruit trees & veg beds already in place. The workshop/store outbuilding is lockable and has power.
EQUESTRIAN: The paddocks are used for horses at present, they have mains water troughs with a field shelter/stable and a loosebox in place too. To the bottom is an extensive orchard of primarily cider & culinary apples, a large lake (registered fishery, but with limited access at present) with scope to generate more income from coarse fishing, perhaps linked to the…

HOLIDAY COTTAGES : The holiday cottages include one 3 bed and two 2 bed self-contained cottages (3 in total) – ‘The Old Stable’ is all on one level and is attached to the main house and could be integrated into the main home as an annexe if desired, it has a lovely garden and hot-tub in place. All have their own gardens, open-plan living, dining & kitchen areas and rural views down towards the lake, they are fully furnished and can be left that way for an acceptable offer.

ZEAL MONACHORUM is situated 8 miles northwest of Crediton, hidden within vast and tumultuous farmlands. Its name is of Latin origin ‘Cella Monachorum’– meaning ‘Cell of the Monks’. Like many Devon villages Zeal is home to a number of period properties, and buildings that have a strict conservation status – preserving the traditional beauty expected from rural settlements. Its church is old (understatement) (1235, late Saxon) and in its yard is a yew tree rumoured to have experienced a 1000 birthdays or more (not that anyone celebrates). The village is also known for having the most family friendly inn around, ‘The Waie Inn’ – offering great food & drink, both outdoor and indoor children’s play areas, a heated swimming pool, skittle alley, large function rooms (for weddings, parties etc), an astro turf pitch, squash courts, fishing lake and B&B rooms.

BOW is a hilltop village on the River Yeo. It sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rdmillennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area. Modern Bow is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket – an idyllic country escape.
