Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
A fantastic opportunity to acquire an attractive threshing barn with planning permission to convert into a dwelling. Country location with parking and a garden.


The barn is in a rural location about 1.5 miles from Rackenford. The village maintains an active community providing a good range of local amenities including primary school, community post office/shop and village church, together with the popular village inn, The Stag Inn, rumoured to be one of the oldest pubs in Devon

The popular market town of Tiverton is located 9 miles away with a full range of amenities including the prestigious Blundells School. Exeter is about 18 miles distant and has all the amenities and facilities associated with a major regional centre.

The area is renowned for country sports and pursuits with the Exmoor National Park approximately 7 miles to the north, and the North Devon rugged coastline, with its popular sandy beaches, accessible via the A361.

Accessibility is very good as Rackenford is approximately 1 miles from the A361 (North Devon Link Road) with easy access to national roads and rail networks via the M5 motorway at Junction 27, where there is also Tiverton Parkway Station with fast trains to London.


The Threshing Barn benefits from small areas of outside space to the front and rear (outlined in red on the sale plan)

The proposed accommodation will provide a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area, with vaulted ceiling to second floor height with large areas of glazing on the East and West elevations and in the 'drangway' door.

There are two good double bedrooms both with en suite shower room facilities, with the master bedroom on the first floor with views over the surrounding countryside.

Proceed for just over a mile and take the next turning on the left (do not follow Witheridge). The entrance to the property will be found by the second property on the right, with the footpath sign.
