Oakford is a pretty village with a lovely old Parish Church and village hall which lies just three miles from Bampton, a charming country village providing a good range of amenities including shops, pubs and a doctor's surgery. The larger market town of Tiverton lies seven miles to the south with an excellent range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. There is dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours). This whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with the Exmoor National Park some three miles to the north with its beautiful deep wooded valleys and heather moors ideal for country pursuits such as riding, walking, fishing and shooting.
No. 2 Townmead is an attractive, semi-detached property which enjoys a lovely, secluded position on the edge of the village with pretty gardens and the option to lease a further area of garden which is ideal for growing vegetables and keeping chickens. The interior offers light and airy, well presented accommodation with some lovely views over the surrounding countryside. A stable door leads into the entrance hall and kitchen/breakfast room with a tiled floor, useful understair cupboard and a range of cream fitted units incorporating a Belfast sink, cupboard with plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and space for a large oven/ range with extractor fan over.
