The property

The Larches is tucked quietly away in the small but thriving town of Bampton.

This historic Charter town lies close to the Somerset border on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and is famous for its floral displays.

Newly built, this excellent detached house offers stylish and spacious accommodation.

The focal point of the house is the fabulous kitchen/diner; bi-fold doors lead from the dining area to the enclosed rear garden, this lovely room has a real holiday ambience.

The comfortable lounge is light and airy and overlooks the rear garden.

Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room, and a contemporary family bathroom with freestanding bath and a large shower cubicle.

To the rear of this exceptional holiday home is a level lawn with a securely covered well, and patio complete with garden furniture.

Bampton is just a short drive from the harbour at Watchet and the sandy beach at Minehead making it the perfect place from which to explore the coast and countryside, and with two excellent pubs within walking distance you won't have to worry about cooking at the end of a busy day.

For the keen cyclist, the West Country Way cycle route takes in Bampton and the Exmoor National Park, a unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland.

About the location

TIVERTON

Crediton 12 miles; Exeter 14 miles; Taunton 21 miles.

The largest town in Mid Devon, visit Tiverton for echoes of the past including a romantic castle, and horse-drawn barge trips on the idyllic Grand Western Canal. Occupying a strategic position on two rivers, the Exe and the Lowman, brought Tiverton wealth as a flourishing textile town, resulting in many fine buildings. These include the Jacobean Great House of St. George, three medieval almshouses, and the fantastic parish church of St. Peter with its remarkable frieze of merchant vessels with billowing sails. Another famous building is Old Blundells, immortalised by former pupil R.D. Blackmore in his classic Lorna Doone. However, the town's most famous building is beautiful Tiverton Castle, a royal fortress commissioned in 1106 by Henry I. Find out more about Tiverton's rich heritage at award-winning Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, with 14 galleries of exhibits including the Tivvy Bumper GWR locomotive.
