Full Property Details

West Nightcott is situated in the most beautiful and tranquil, rural setting, just outside the Exmoor National Park. The delightful country town of Dulverton, known as "The Gateway to Exmoor" is 1.5 miles away and offers a great variety of local shops, as well as popular pubs, restaurants, library, doctors' surgery, pharmacy and primary school. Exmoor is a wonderful place to explore and enjoy a wide range of country pursuits, with many beautiful walks on the doorstep and the nearby Wimbleball Lake, popular for circular walks and cycle trails and renowned for it's fly fishing, sailing and rowing. The market town of Tiverton lies approx. 12 miles to the south with dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station with services to London (Paddington approx. 2 hours).

The property being offered for sale comprises two spacious stone built, detached barns formerly used for business premises, which have since had their use changed to holiday let. The barns would benefit from some cosmetic improvement, but once updated, they would offer a wonderful opportunity to acquire a small holiday let complex. Within the grounds is also a stone outbuilding/ store, known as "The Squirrel Hut" (no current utilities but power available nearby).

A fully furnished shepherd's hut with all utilities is included within the sales and offers further potential for holiday letting income. The hut is high spec and is equipped with refrigerator, television, log burner, underfloor heating, double glazed, microwave and shower.

Outside, the property is approached by a private driveway from Dennington Lane to an extensive parking area. There is a large area of lawn to the front of the barns, and The Shippen Barn has a patio garden to the rear.
