Church Cottage is located on the edge of the small rural hamlet of Bradford, which has a primary school, church, chapel and a village hall. The nearby village of Shebbear has a small range of amenities including a doctors surgery and well known public school and is some three miles distant. The thriving market town of Holsworthy is seven miles away and has an excellent range of amenities including a Waitrose supermarket, banking facilities, leisure centre, primary and secondary schools. The A30 dual
carriageway and the former market town of Okehampton is about 16 miles and the M5 motorway can be found just beyond the cathedral city of Exeter, which is approximately 40 miles to the east. The dramatic Dartmoor National Park provides superb walking and riding opportunities, whilst the north Cornish and Devon coasts are within easy driving distance.

The property has oil fired central heating with radiators throughout and in addition two solar roof panels supplement the hot water system. All but one of the bedrooms have wash basins and the majority of the windows together with the conservatory are double glazed.
