SITUATION

The Malt House is set in a tucked away and south-facing position on the edge of the very popular village of North Molton, which sits on the south western foothills of the Exmoor National Park and only a short distance from the A361 North Devon Link Road. The village has a thriving community and offers a very good range of amenities including an excellent shop and post office, primary school (Ofsted: Good), village hall, garage, sports club and public house.

The local market town of South Molton is about three miles and provides an excellent range of further amenities including schooling to secondary level, banking facilities and Sainsbury's supermarket. The A361 provides an excellent road link to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the west and to Tiverton and the M5 (Junction 27) to the east where there is a railway station at Tiverton Parkway on the London Paddington line.

Exmoor National Park, renowned for its spectacular scenery and excellent opportunities for walking, riding and fishing, is about a mile away from the property and the impressive North Devon coastline with is steep cliffs and wide sandy beaches is also within easy reach by car.
