An exceptional opportunity to acquire a fabulous country property that has not been on the market for more than a century is being offered by property experts Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

West Yelland Farm, Welch’s Lane, West Yelland, Yelland, near Barnstaple, offers an unparalleled chance to live in a desirable and sought-after location within easy reach of all the services, facilities and amenities that the area offers.

The property is encircled by open farmland, which is in the ownership of the vendor.
