School House and Courtyard Cottage are set just off the impressive village Square of the sought after village of Chittlehampton. The popular village has a thriving community and excellent village amenities including a general stores/post office, primary school, church and a very popular public house, The Bell Inn.

About five miles to the east is the thriving and popular market town of South Molton, which offers an excellent range of shopping, social and banking facilities as well as infant, junior and senior schools. The A361 North Devon Link Road bypasses the town and provides an excellent road link to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the west and to Tiverton and the M5 (Junction 27) to the east where there is a railway station at Tiverton Parkway on the London Paddington line.

Exmoor National Park and the impressive North Devon coastline with its steep cliffs and wide sandy beaches is also within easy reach by car.


School House is an appealing and spacious character property consisting of a five bedroom detached main house with the added benefit of a further detached two bedroom cottage, which has permission for residential use but is equally suited to its current use as a holiday cottage. Both properties are well-presented and would ideally suit the needs for those seeking a property which can generate an income or those seeking a property for dual occupancy or with an annexe for a dependent relative.
