An authentic Exmoor farm adjoining open moorland with a stylishly renovated farmhouse at its centre and unrivalled views. In all about 106.19 acres.
Fellingscott Farm sits in a spectacular position within the northern part of Exmoor National Park which comprises just under 700 km² of moorland, woodland, coast and rivers and is an area which offers natural beauty in its highest order. The park is full of wildlife, deep valleys and is dotted with medieval towns and villages.
The village of Lynton is about five miles away and has a good range of local shops, a museum, primary school, town hall, as well as restaurants and cafes. 600 feet below Lynton is the small harbor of Lynmouth and the two villages are linked by a famous and ingenious cliff railway, hence the village became known by the Victorians as Little Switzerland.
The towns of Barnstaple and Minehead both lie about 16 miles away and have a much wider range of facilities. There are excellent private schools at Tiverton, Taunton and West Buckland and mainline train stations at Taunton and Tiverton Parkway with regular connections to London and the Midlands.
Heaven on earth for horse lovers, Fellingscott Farm is perfectly placed with direct access to open moor providing unsurpassed outriding. Exmoor is also renowned for being home to some of the finest shoots and fishing in the country.
There are exceptional sandy beaches on the North Devon Coast including Saunton, Putsborough and Croyde, which are all renowned for surfing. Saunton is also home to the well known links golf course.
Approached from a long private drive the immaculate residential farm is centred around a wonderfully presented Grade II Listed 4 bedroom (4 en-suite) farmhouse which sits in the centre of its own land with fantastic views over completely unspoilt countryside.

The farmhouse is surrounded by well-established fabulous gardens which provide profusions of colour throughout the year together with a bluebell wood situated to the south of the farmhouse. Across the yard a two storey traditional stone barn is now utilised as utility and domestic storage on the ground floor and the first floor provides a flexible space which lends itself to a myriad of uses (subject to the necessary planning consents). The farm itself currently operates in a traditional upland manner and is run as beef unit however offers flexibility and could suit a variety of farming or equestrian enterprises and has direct access to open moorland providing wonderful outriding. The land is also high in amenity, wildlife and sporting appeal.
