The West Country / Devon region
The house is located at the edge the village of Chulmleigh in Devon.
Chulmleigh is a remote, Saxon, hilltop town located in the heart of Devon that has a real, old fashioned community spirit. It is a town of thatched cottages, welcoming inns and one of the finest churches in the country. The area is relatively undiscovered by tourism and retains the charm of yesteryear.
It’s good to visit all year round. Chulmleigh Fair, held annually since 1253, is perfect for children enjoying the first week of the summer holiday. In winter take in the breathtaking scenery on a brisk walk – then have a well deserved drink in one of the town’s three inns.
The Barnstaple / Chulmleigh area
Local activities include: Yoga, personal fitness sessions, massage, one on one art lessons, local fishing, clay shooting, biking, hiking and horse riding.
The Chulmleigh area provides many leisure activities including golf, horse riding, watching cricket on a pitch with fabulous views, fishing, mountain biking and hill walking. The 180 mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest which is on the banks of the River Taw. There are also number of historic houses, gardens and theme parks in the vicinity.
