Their service, from beginning to end of the purchase, was excellent from being shown around the property, then chasing as required, through to a successful completion.

A fantastic development opportunity in this very popular coastal resort offering a spacious family house, a building plot (with outline planning), a detached timber cabin (ideal holiday let) and a range of outbuildings that lend themselves to conversion; making this property a superb project. The existing house was built by the current owner in 1981 and offers very spacious family size accommodation with some views out over the ocean. The approved planning consent is in outlying form, which means the discovering applicant can submit their own detailed plans. The detached timber cabin has its own south facing garden and is divided into three separate rooms which would make a superb holiday 'let'. There is also a range of workshop/ sheds outbuildings, opposite the main house, which subject to the necessary consents, would ideally convert into a holiday bungalow or granny annex.

Croyde is a desirable seaside village and a popular holiday location for all walks of life, but is mainly known for its sandy bay offering excellent surfing and other water sports. In addition to this, the jutting rock face of Baggy Point is owned by the National Trust and offers a beautiful and tranquil coastal walk. This leads around the headland to Putsborough and in turn onto Woolacombe.

The village has every day amenities such as the post office, an active village hall, a selection of excellent public houses and restaurants. The neighbouring village of Georgeham has an 'outstanding' graded primary school. A regular bus service runs to Braunton which offers additional amenities of a supermarket, various convenience stores and local shops. There is a further selection of restaurants, public houses, primary and secondary schools and a medical centre.

Barnstaple, the regional centre of North Devon, is 9 miles away and offers a further range of national and local high street shops and supermarkets. There is a national railway link to London via Exeter or via the A361 link road to Tiverton Parkway railway station.
