The Pavilion enjoys a simply idyllic yet remarkably convenient setting on the wooded slopes of the enchanting Farway valley. Surrounded by gently undulating countryside synonymous with rural East Devon, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a property in one of East Devon's most prized and sought after locations with the most breathtaking views.

The nearby historic market town of Honiton is just 3 miles away with a wide range of shops and facilities, a main line rail service to London Waterloo and good road links to Exeter in the West, Dorchester to the East, the stunning Jurassic Coast to the South and London via the A303 to the North East. The Cathedral City of Exeter is just 26 miles away with access to the M5 motorway via junction 29 and the International airport just 16 miles. The perfect haven for the country lover and rural commuter alike.


The Pavilion is an idyllically situated detached single storey dwelling carefully converted, as its name suggests, from the former sports Pavilion of the neighbouring historic Netherton Hall. Occupying mature and well kept gardens and grounds with simply stunning elevated views over adjoining rolling countryside, the property is a delightful private rural retreat in its own right whilst also offering a prime development opportunity with planning permission to significantly extend. Planning ref: East Devon District Council: 14/1605/FUL.


In early 2018 planning permission was granted for the demolition and construction of a modern property on the site. Positioned to make the most of this historic location and the amazing views, the proposed plans show a well designed home with large expanses of glass and sliding doors alongside timber cladding. The awarding winning architect Annie Martin comments that the 3 bedroom proposed dwelling embraces the site, immediate surroundings and distant views'.

Planning permission was granted under ref 17/2715/FUL on the 15th February 2018, with consent granted for an improved double garage ref 18/1587/FUL on the 10th August 2018. Plans available from the EDDC Website or by contact the agents.

CGI design provided by Annie Martin Architects.


The property is approached across an area of hardstanding to a remotely operated electric five bar gate with entry call system. This gate opens onto a concrete driveway leading down through the grounds to a wide level area providing parking, turning and the site for a Double Garage for which planning permission has been obtained. East Devon District Council ref: 14/2867/FUL.

Mature well kept gardens extend to a total plot size of 0.68 acres, the whole enjoying undeniably stunning panoramic views in all directions over the surrounding Devon countryside. A block paved pathway descends from the parking area to the property flanked by outside lighting and shaped box hedge ornamentation. Lawns surround the property with the rear enjoying a particularly warm and sheltered Westerly aspect. Further gardens extend to the far boundary with picturesque sheltered seating areas, a corner storage shed and small 'out of sight' amenity area.
