    “The property is stunning!”

    Absolutely immaculate. We took our two dogs and plenty of towels and throws in case they jumped on the furniture . The huge doors let in loads of light, however the garden is not fenced off, so we were unable to leave them open. Lovely walks around the property, we saw deer, rabbits and hares . Also many different bird species. The owners Colin and Mae were very friendly. A really lovely, peaceful holiday away from our busy lives.

The property

This modern 2 bedroom detached property sits within the homeowner’s private grounds, ideal for a family or group of friends who wish to experience a rural retreat in a sustainable and eco friendly property.

Spend your day exploring this small private estate with an abundance of wildlife, ideal for those interested in conservation, and native planting.

The 30 acre grounds are a haven for a wide variety of native flora and fauna with a stream running through the length of the valley feeding 9 pond lakes of varying sizes.

The pond lakes are stocked with coarse fish, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch, Tench and some carp, and fishing is available at a reasonable charge per day based on catch and release and the sports playing picnic field to the front of the property is an excellent space to let your four legged companion burn off some energy. There are many paths providing beautiful valley and woodland walks (over 2 miles), and also views of the local countryside.

There is a good variety of wildlife including roe and red deer, foxes, badgers, polecats, otters, bats, kingfishers, barn and tawny owls, buzzards and kestrels (over 50 species of bird have been identified by previous owners).

There are also a good variety of butterflies, bees, beetles and other insects in the pasture kept as wildflower meadow and an opportunity to reconnect with nature. Benches are scattered through the grounds, for rest and contemplation. Narracott Down was built in 2024 and has been sensitively designed, with natural and local materials, respecting the unspoilt nature of the site.

The open plan kitchen dining and living room benefits from natural lighting from all sides, as well as the doors onto the covered veranda, creating a great social space to enjoy whatever the weather.

As night falls choose from the ground floor kingsize bedroom (which can be arranged as 2 2ft 6 single beds on request) positioned next to the family bathroom, or the first floor master bedroom with it's super king bed (which can be arranged as 2 3ft single beds on request) and ensuite shower room.

In addition there is a sofabed in the open plan living room. Within easy reach is the market town of South Molton the 'gateway' to Exmoor National Park which has a wide range of amenities including shops, pubs restaurants. South Molton attractions include the Pannier market (twice weekly), Quince Honey Farm, Castle Hill Gardens, Exmoor Zoological Park, Lynton and Barnstaple railway, South Molton museum and nearby golf courses.

Exmoor national Park is situated to the north, and is renowned for its undulating moorland and pastures, dissected by rivers and streams running down through deep wooded coombes to the spectacular and world renowned north Devon coastline (Valley of the Rocks, Lynton and Lynmouth, Ilfracombe) featuring the wonderful beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Crow Point.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
