Property Details

Orchard Barn was converted around twelve years ago and has been finished and maintained to the highest standards. The property boasts many character features and the extent of the accommodation quite belies the exterior. The property is just attached to the neighbouring cottage and enjoys a different orientation. Approached via a lane about half a mile from the road with a handful of other dwellings, the situation is peaceful but not isolated. The village of Lifton lies within a mile and offers the convenience of a Shop/Post Office, a couple of pubs and restaurants, two hotels, a GP surgery and a petrol station. The larger town of Launceston is approximately four miles away and Tavistock is approximately nine miles, with all the amenities that larger thriving market towns have to offer. Exeter international airport is about an hour's drive away and the Maritime City of Plymouth lies about twenty miles to the south. The north and south coasts of Devon and Cornwall are easily accessible as is the wonderful Dartmoor National Park which offers many outdoor pursuits.
