Oaklands is an impressive, detached house, situated in a tucked away position, yet within close reach of Lynton/Lynmouth village amenities and beach. It takes advantage of its elevated position, by offering some lovely sea and woodland views, whilst also benefitting from a good deal of privacy and seclusion. Set within Exmoor National Park, the original building dates from the late Georgian/early Victorian era circa 1820, with the property being extended at both ends in earlier times. The spacious and flexible accommodation, with a wealth of character features, is arranged over two floors and also benefits from a very generous loft space which could be converted to provide additional rooms, subject to the necessary planning consents being granted. In brief, there are four reception rooms, six bedrooms and five bathrooms, along with a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and useful storage room. As well as the overall accommodation, Oaklands has the added attraction of lovely woodland gardens, sun terrace, off road parking and a substantial detached stone barn, approx. 51.5ft X 16ft. The barn serves as a large garage/workshop, but may offer potential for conversion to separate accommodation, subject to planning permission.

Situated on the rugged North Devon Heritage Coast where Exmoor National Park meets the sea, Oaklands enjoys being positioned close to Lynmouth and Lynton. Lynmouth is a charming and traditional Devonshire village and is home to the famous Lynton and Lymouth Cliff Top Railway. The village itself offers usual amenities, including many shops, pubs and restaurants with some delightful walks with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and coastline. Ilfracombe and Combe Martin are a short drive away, continuing along the coast to Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe. Barnstaple the historical capital of North Devon is some 20 miles in distance and offers a wider range of shopping amenities together with schools, train station, theatre, cinema and indoor heated leisure pool.
