Situation

Jays cottage is set towards the edge of the popular and award winning village of Kings Nympton which has an excellent public house, The Grove Inn, primary school, church and village hall and is set amidst unspoilt rolling countryside. The area offers a wealth of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling, fishing on the Rivers Mole and Taw and golf at Libbaton and the nearby Highbullen Country Hotel and leisure complex. There is also a train station on the Barnstaple to Exeter Tarka line about two miles away at Kings Nympton Station.

Kings Nympton is five miles from the thriving market town of South Molton which offers an excellent range of shopping, social and banking facilities and amenities including schooling to secondary level and weekly pannier and stock markets. The town is bypassed by the A361 North Devon Link Road which provides an excellent link to the North Devon regional centre of Barnstaple to the west and Tiverton and the M5 (Junction 27) to the east. There is a main line railway station at Tiverton Parkway with an intercity service to London Paddington (just over 2 hours).
