About this property

  • Splendidly located overlooking the Cathedral City of Exeter and set within 46 acres of fields and woodland, the farm and the three luxury holiday cottages hold unrivalled panoramic views across the Devon county and beyond. Award winning and with a five star gold rating with Visit England, the farm and cottages offer a truly unique opportunity bestowing all the benefits of rural living, a bespoke and hugely successful business, all just a moment away from Devon's capital city and all of its amenities. The property blends a great sense of history with modern living, with the original farmhouse dating back to the Domesday book, alongside the uniqueness of the contemporary cottages.

    Within the 46 acres of land, there are seven fields that are actively farmed, woodland areas, a bridle path, and a spring and reservoir. The focal point of the farm consists of a five bedroom farm house, three award winning detached single-storey holiday cottages, a six stall stable, two further large farming sheds, and planning and utilities in place for a fourth holiday cottage in the form of a static lodge house. All of which enjoy breath-taking panoramic views on all sides and are presented and kept to the highest standard. The original parts of the farm house date back to the Domesday book and has over the years been extended to just over 3,400 sq. ft in total. Superbly presented with exposed oak timber beams and doors, with a high quality finish throughout, the house offers plenty of versatile space and enjoys many of the far reaching views on offer. A wonderful farmhouse kitchen breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling acts as the hub of the house and gives a great sense of contemporary living. Two entrance hallways lead to three reception rooms, a study, two large bedrooms, a bathroom, a utility room, a cloakroom and a south facing conservatory, all complete with three cosy wood burners in the principle rooms. Upstairs, there are three further bedrooms (one with an en-suite) enjoying the magnificent views and a family bathroom. The garden to the farm house incorporates a very private setting and is a real escape, with a fine array of fruit trees and plants, and a relaxing hot tub located on a raised terrace that captures the southerly views towards the Haldon Hills and the edge of Dartmoor.

    The three detached single-storey converted holiday cottages are award winning and five star gold rated with Visit England. Attracting clientele from across the world, the three cottages are presented to the highest standard, designed for luxurious and exclusive stays, making the most of the unrivalled panoramic views across Devon from all the principal rooms and from the decked private terraces. The cottages are designed to be experienced and attract clientele across the year, with feature standalone wood burners in all three principal reception rooms for the colder months, and an abundance of outside terrace space for the warmer months. Designed and built between 2017 to 2021, each cottage sleeps four (two double bedrooms), six (three double bedrooms), and the largest, eight (four double bedrooms) respectively. All featuring exposed timber beam ceilings, underfloor heating, automatic lighting, and enjoying open plan living spaces finished to the utmost quality. Floor to ceiling picturesque windows hold the beautiful views across the countryside and open onto the private terraces. The business has rapidly grown since 2017 and has the ability for further scope of expansion, having planning in place for a fourth cottage, and with utilities in place for hot tubs for each cottage. Further scope and potential of expansion to the business can also be found with the two large existing farm sheds and the six stall stable. The cottages and business present a superb proposition for any buyer searching for a new home in the heart of Devon, alongside taking over stewardship of an established and highly successful business that has further potential to expand. The property would also be ideal for multi generational living.
