Broad Park House is situated in a rural setting just one mile from the village of High Bickington. High Bickington itself offers a primary school, post office/store, pub, doctors' surgery, a popular community centre and parkland golf course. As expected, the proximity of Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Coast make this a fantastic area for those who love the outdoors, and it is all the more accessible through the nearby Umberleigh Railway Station. Dog walks and cycle paths are plentiful and there are places for all kinds of activities, from surfing on the coast to the Ultimate Adventure Centre near Bideford to ambling around the shops of nearby market towns, Great Torrington and Barnstaple. For those used to city life, this location is by no means a complete desertion of this lifestyle. Exeter is under an hour away by car to the south, with Tiverton approximately 35 minutes away, giving access to the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway, making both Bristol and London accessible destinations.
Our vendor says:
'I have had nearly ten wonderful years at Broad Park House . Now as I am on my own , I am moving closer to my daughter and grandchild .
Broad Park is very peaceful yet only a few hundred yards from the A377.
Although there are no close neighbours , there is a real community spirit in the lane .
The garden is very private with many sun trap areas. There is an abundance of bird life and many unusual and beautiful trees .
As an artist I love the light sunny rooms . The house faces south and benefits from the sun all day long , and there are wonderful sunsets to see from the kitchen .'
