    This 22.4m x 8.6m agricultural barn is positioned overlooking its pasture, orchard of approaching 80 fruit trees and surrounding countryside and is accessed over a shared driveway. Situated less than a mile from the very popular surfing beach of Croyde, and with three other surfing beaches within easy striking distance,this is a rare find.

    The planned accommodation has open plan kitchen/dining/living space with vaulted ceilings to both this area and the entrance hallway, complete with velux windows. There are two bi-fold doors giving access to the extensive terrace which runs the entire length of the barn, making the most of the wonderful rural outlook.

    With three of the bedrooms opening onto the terrace including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room. A family bathroom with both shower and bath and a fourth bedroom complete the planned accommodation.

    There is an extensive terrace running the entire length of the barn on the south elevation and wraps around the east elevation with a patio. From both terrace & patio sea views and sunsets can be enjoyed, through the valley out to Croyde Bay

    The property is approached over a shared driveway which becomes private as it turns and approaches the barn. There is ample parking for numerous vehicles on the gravelled driveway as it is currently arranged.

    The land is ring fenced, being stream bordered to one side and was originally arranged as two fields which could be easily reinstated if required.

    The pasture below the barn has quite recently been planted with a variety of fruit trees (approximately 80 in total). This orchard includes pear trees and both apple and plum trees suitable for cooking and eating. An abundance of daffodils have been planted within this orchard which create a lovely splash of colour in the Spring time.

    About the Area
    Forda is a pretty hamlet with beautiful countryside surroundings, located between the popular coastal village of Croyde and the quaint village of Georgeham.

    Croyde is an extremely popular village on the west-facing coastline of North Devon and has become internationally renowned for its spectacular scenery and superb surfing beach, which has hosted numerous top ranking surfing competitions.

    Georgeham is a pretty village with a thriving community, with well regarded primary school, general stores, church, village hall, recreation ground and two very popular public houses. For those looking to be close to the fabulous surfing beaches but yet able to escape ‘from the madding crowd’ at the end of the day, Forda and Georgeham have proved to be a well favoured option.

    Secondary education and more extensive facilities are provided in Braunton, just 3 miles away and Barnstaple is 9 miles, with all the facilities you’d expect from the region’s main centre, including hospital, leisure centre, historic Pannier market, supermarkets, home improvement stores, restaurants, bars, clubs, schools, colleges, rail link to Exeter, and more.

    Forda is just over an hour’s drive from Tiverton station, with mainline connection to London Paddington (2hrs) and road access is via the A361 North Devon Link Road, which connects to the M5 (also just over an hour)
