Woodbury Parish, which includes the Villages of Woodbury, Woodbury Salterton and Exton, is one of the largest Parishes in Devon. It encompasses much of Woodbury Common, an outstanding area of natural beauty and enjoys a thriving community spirit rooted in the church and chapel, in the school and in agriculture. In days past, the Parish was frequented by Sir Francis Drake and there is a chapel dedicated to his memory at St Swithin's in the village centre. Some of the facilities of the village include two excellent public houses, a village store and post office, restaurants, doctor's surgery, nearby golf club and leisure facilities at Woodbury Park and a bus service operating between Exmouth and Exeter, being only minutes away.


For sale for the first time in over 30 years, a delightful five bedroom Grade II listed family house with stunning views over open countryside, located on the edge of the popular East Devon village of Woodbury. With a garden extending to just under half an acre, the partly thatched house is currently run as a B & B and small caravan site allowing scope for a home with income, although with ample accommodation, it makes for a lovely family house with a large garden. Believed to have originally been two cottages converted into one house many years ago, there are three reception rooms, a large kitchen, five double bedrooms, shower room and downstairs WC. Cottles Farm is approached via a private drive running along the side of the field and leading to the side of the property. A path runs to the front, where there is an additional grass garden, and also to the side. An excellent opportunity to purchase a period family home on the edge of this popular village.
