There are also two exposed stone fireplaces (one not currently used) and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen/dining room has a Falcon Range cooker tucked away in a stone recess, floor and wall units with granite worktops, breakfast bar and more than ample space for a large dining table and chairs and access into the utility room.

West Buckland is an unspoilt large hamlet located just inland from the coast and enjoying peace and tranquillity, being away from main road traffic and set within a valley which is protected from the prevailing wind. Nearby are the better-known coastal villages of Thurlestone and Bantham. Thurlestone is renowned for its 18-hole links golf course but also has some fine beaches, a village inn, a shop, church, and a hotel which offers country club facilities to non-residents, including squash courts, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course. On the other side of West Buckland lies Bantham which is arguably one of the prettiest villages in the South Hams being at the mouth of the River Avon and protected by sand dunes and vast expanses of golden beach. The market town of Kingsbridge is close at hand, as is the famous sailing centre of Salcombe on another delightful South Hams estuary.

Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating.
