Property Description

Convenience is at your doorstep, with the community shop, village pub, and Primary School just a short stroll away.

West Down is a small working village situated approximately 10 minutes’ drive from the North Devon coastline. Village amenities include a village community shop, pub, church and an excellent primary school which continues to maintain its ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted. There is also a community play park and allotments. The unspoilt village is situated within equal distance from the coastal town of Ilfracombe and the larger village of Braunton. Woolacombe Bay with its fabulous 2 1/2 mile long golden sand surfing beach is approximately 4 miles away. The region’s main town, Barnstaple, being just 8 miles away, has a vibrant high street with both big name and independent retailers. Barnstaple train station links to Exeter, allowing direct access into London. Barnstaple also has direct access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27 (Tiverton).

Stepping inside the property, a welcoming entrance lobby greets you and opens into the entrance hall which has an attractive wood floor. The stairs rise to the upper floors and there is a useful niche below which is ideal for coats, boots and shoes or perfect for the dog bed!
