There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway whilst Exeter international airport provides a number of domestic and international flights. The area affords exceptional schooling for all ages with a fine village school which feeds directly into Uffculme School which has an excellent reputation. For independent schools Wellington School and Blundells are within easy reach.


Briar Cottage is a good sized three bedroom terraced cottage full of original character with lime rendered elevations under a slate roof. The accommodation in brief comprises a large sitting/reception room, kitchen/dining room, downstairs utility with WC, three double bedrooms and a family shower room. The property has undergone a number of improvements to include re rendering of the front with Lime render, the installation of Bi-folding doors in the dining room and replacement of old beams in the sitting room to new locally sourced wooden beams. To the rear of the property is a good sized garden which has been split into four different areas and benefits from pedestrian access from the village road.


From the covered entrance porch a wooden painted front door opens into the reception/sitting room. This was once two rooms but has been opened up into one with one side benefitting from a tiled floor with underfloor heating and a large inglenook fireplace and the other side of the room which is carpeted enjoys a further fireplace with inset wood burner with slate hearth. A door leads from here into the inner hallway with tiled floor, stairs to first floor and doors to the kitchen and utility room. The utility room features built in units with wooden work surface, inset Belfast sink, plumbing and space for a washing machine and a low level WC. The kitchen is a good size having low level units with space for dishwasher, ceramic sink with mixer tap, further built in cupboards, oil fired Rayburn, space for secondary cooker and space for fridge/freezer. From the kitchen, the tiled floor leads into the dining area which benefits from a triple aspect with Bi-folding doors to two aspects opening out into the rear garden.

On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms, with bedrooms one and three having windows to the front and bedroom two having a window overlooking the rear garden. The family bathroom comprises a large shower cubicle, low level WC, sink unit with built in cupboards under, heated towel rail which can be run from the Rayburn and access to the airing cupboard with hot water tank and slatted wooden shelving.


The property is accessed off the village road where space can be found to park immediately outside.

Through a pedestrian gate, steps lead up to a further gate opening into the vegetable garden with two sheds and a large apple tree. A gate leads into the rear of the garden which is laid to lawn with planted borders, a number of mature trees and paved seating area.
