A fantastic detached cottage on the edge of this popular village, 4 bedrooms, farmhouse kitchen, large two storey barn, gardens and parking plus adjacent land available to rent.

Stockhay is an excellent example of a Grade II listed thatched cottage built circa 1640. It has been sensitively restored, renovated and modernised with superb attention to detail including handmade oak doors, lime plaster and slate flagstone flooring whilst retaining all of the original character. Heating is provided via the oil-fired range in the kitchen which also provides hot water. There is a generously sized elm-panelled sitting room with inglenook fireplace and wood burner, the original dairy is now used as a study and a central hall is home to a solid oak staircase and provides access to the rear garden. Completing the ground floor is a spacious and well-appointed farmhouse kitchen with solid handmade painted beech units, slate and wood working surfaces and a large central island.

On the first floor is a large master bedroom with exposed cross beams, a vaulted ceiling and an en-suite shower room. Three further bedrooms and a large family bathroom with free standing bath and underfloor heating complete the cottage internally.

Outside, the property is approached via a 5 bar gate to the country lane giving access to a large off-road parking area with ample space for a caravan or horse box and a superb treehouse. The main lawned gardens are found behind the house with a large paved area and steps up to remainder of the garden, which is laid to lawn and surrounded by hedging.

To the front and running east is a second area of garden with raised beds and further lawn, leading to a timber workshop (approx. 9.2m x 2.8m with concrete floor, power and lighting) and a large two story agricultural barn with ground and first floor storage, a utility room, store and double doors out to the adjacent field (see floorplan).

For the past 17 years or so, the adjacent field (which extends to approx. 1 acre) has been let to the owners of Stockhay and it is understood that this arrangement could continue with a new owner (subject to satisfactory meeting with the land owner, agreeing rent and associated fees). The field is established and adds to Stockhay with a wildlife pond, animal pens, field shelter and chicken run, the remainder of the field is left as grazing.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

DIRECTIONS : From the A30 : Leave the A30 at Whiddon Down and take the A3124 as signed to Winkleigh. After approx. 0.9 miles, turn right towards Spreyton. Continue for approximately 3 miles until entering Spreyton. Continue (don't turn left into the village centre) for another 0.4 miles and Stockhay will be found on your right, the last house after the country garage.

From Crediton : Leave the town on the A377 and through Copplestone and onto Bow. Once in Bow, turn off into Station Road (signed to Spreyton) and pass the school. Follow the signs for Spreyton (approx. 3.5 miles) and Stockhay will be the first house on your left as you approach the village.

SPREYTON is a pastoral village, a whisker to the north of Dartmoor National Park. The lands here are high and open, with sweeping views, dry stone walls and roving winds. The village is legendary for its connection to the cherished character ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’ of Devon folklore. It is thought that his infamous trip to Widecombe Fair (from the song) may have started in what is now the Tom Cobley Tavern – a family run pub, with a distinctive thatched bar and winner of the 2016 (and 2015) ‘Exeter and East Devon’s CAMRA Rural Pub of the Year’ award. Supposedly, the local churchyard is also the final resting place of ‘Tom Cobley’ – but who really knows? Spreyton primary school is small, with a handful of pupils and benefits from attentive, dedicated teachers. For amenities there is a friendly, well-stocked village shop.
