- Fantastic village location
- Flexible layout with 4/5 bedrooms
- Full of character and space
- Secure and private south facing courtyard
- Cob barn to the rear
A large thatched village house which is full of character and flexibility plus a courtyard garden and cob barn to the rear.
The property offers sizeable and flexible family accommodation full of charm and character with numerous period features, some of which include a wealth of exposed ceiling beams and wall timbers, a lovely inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, bread oven and oak lintel. There is a fully enclosed garden to the south side of the house, enjoying high levels of privacy and seclusion, and having pleasant areas of patio/seating areas, flower beds plus a useful stone/cob barn (with original old "copper").
The property is large and its room layout allows the house to be used in a variety of ways with up to 5 bedrooms if required (please see the floorplan to identify potential layouts). There are a couple of rooms upstairs that are adjoined making them either larger suites or occasional rooms. The kitchen has been improved by the current owners and this has been extended into the dining room to be used as a larger functioning kitchen. The living room has a large fireplace with the wood-burner and there is a ground floor bedroom/reception too. The library to the side is a double height room and again would suit a number of uses.
To the rear is a courtyard garden which is private and secure with paved seating area and plenty of room for pot plants and shrubs. The cob barn is very useful storage to the rear. There is no off-road parking with the property but there is a village car park just a few metres from the property.
Agents note: We are advised that the property was last re-thatched in August 2012 with two extended chimneys.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

BOW is a hilltop village on the River Yeo. It sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rdmillennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area. Modern Bow is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket – an idyllic country escape.
DIRECTIONS : Proceed to the centre of the village and turn off at Bow Village Cross as signed to Spreyton. The Old School House will be seen immediately on your left with parking available in the nearby village carpark.
