Yellands Farm is set in an exceedingly peaceful, elevated position within the Dartmoor National Park. The house is approached from a track onto a large parking area for several cars with access to the house and outbuildings.
To the rear of the house is a sun terrace, ideal for ‘alfresco’ entertaining, with breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside and moorland, taking in Fernworthy, King Tor, Easdon Tor and, in the distance, Hound Tor, Saddle Tor and Hay Tor. Steps lead down to a rockery with flowering shrubs and an area of lawn. A further lawn lies beneath and a productive vegetable patch is found behind the barns.
The land is formed of pasture, divided into fields with fencing and stone wall borders. An orchard lies at the top of the land, planted with a variety of apple and pear trees. In total the grounds cover approximately 25.9 acres.
Yellands Farm benefits from a number of outbuildings including a traditional thatched stone built barn, as well as another stone built barn, which is currently being used as a games room. There is also a store, lean-to, wood store and garage.
