Double timber gates open to a large driveway providing ample parking, retaining the old red phone box from when the property served as the village post office. The drive continues to the rear where there is a detached double garage with a useful storeroom at the back. The gardens are completely private with lawned areas, beautifully planted borders and sheltered sun terrace with views across the valley and to the church. A wonderful entertaining area ideal for alfresco dining, with a sunken hot tub and barbeque. There are also a range of stone outbuildings with a potting shed, garden store and wood store.

Ringmore is an old smuggling village situated at the head of a valley with picturesque views to Bigbury Bay and Ayrmer Cove beach, which is about 20 minutes walking distance from the village with its secluded beach and stunning cliff top walks. In the village itself is an award winning 13th century pub/restaurant and local church. At St Ann's Chapel there is a Post Office and well-stocked general store which offers a delivery service to the church. The village is on a once-a-week bus route, but also with Fare Car services and 5 miles away from the Georgian town of Modbury. For more comprehensive shopping centres Kingsbridge is to the east and the city of Plymouth is to the north west.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
