Attractive 5 bedroom farmhouse with uninterrupted views over unspoilt rolling countryside
Perry Farm is superbly situated in an extremely peaceful location within the stunning, unspoilt mid Devon countryside. The farm lies just outside of the village of Cheriton Fitzpaine which boasts a vibrant village community and offers a good range of day to day amenities to include two pubs, a post office, leisure facilities, a local farm shop with a café. The village is well known for its historic buildings and is home to the longest thatched house in England which has recently been sympathetically converted into what now is a thriving Primary school. The market town of Crediton can be found just 4 miles south and provides a wider variety of everyday facilities including supermarkets, pubs, a well-regarded secondary school, a leisure centre and a monthly traditional farmers market. The Cathedral City of Exeter (12.2 miles) provides a full complement of cultural, commercial, educational and retail facilities.
Although the farm is located in the depth of the mid Devon countryside, there are good road links to both the M5 motorway and the A30 dual carriageway offering easy access to north Cornwall. The A361 north Devon link road is just 12 miles to the north providing access to Exmoor and the north Devon coastline (AONB), home to some of the country’s most scenic landscapes and beaches. Mainline railway stations can be found at both Tiverton and Exeter.
Lot 1a Perry Farmhouse, traditional and modern buildings, approx. 16.74 acres

Traditional barn with PP
On 26 February 2018 planning permission was granted to convert a detached stone barn into a three bedroom holiday cottage. Further details available under planning reference 17/01953/FULL on the Mid Devon Council website or from the agent, Savills.
Range of traditional and modern buildings
There is an extensive range of attractive traditional buildings at Perry Farm which offer significant potential for further development (subject to the necessary planning consents). Pre-app discussions with Mid Devon Council have been held with the outcome that development of the barns for two/three units of holiday accommodation is likely to gain support from the council subject to various surveys and plans being submitted (the pre-app letter is available from the agents).
In addition there is a good range of versatile modern buildings currently used for agriculture as well as machinery storage. Further to this, there is a substantial steel framed building with a separate three phase electricity supply which is currently being used as a workshop.
The land surrounds the farmhouse and buildings and provides a high degree of privacy and protection. It comprises highly productive, free draining, level and south facing gently sloping pasture divided into good sized sheltered enclosures.
