LASHBROOK HOUSE, JACOBSTOWE, NR OKEHAMPTON, DEVON
Hatherleigh 4 miles – Okehampton 6 miles – Exeter 27 miles
A rare opportunity to own an exclusive residence situated in the heart of this much sought after village. Jacobstowe is a typically attractive Devon village consisting essentially of traditional period houses and cottages in the heart of the rolling West Devon countryside, approximately midway between the towns of Okehampton and Hatherleigh.
The market town of Hatherleigh has a good range of local facilities, whilst in Okehampton there is a new leisure centre and hospital, a Waitrose store and secondary educational facilities. There are primary schools in Hatherleigh and the nearby village of Exbourne. Just south of Okehampton is the boundary of the Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its spectacular scenery and providing excellent opportunities for walking, riding and fishing.
There is quick access at Okehampton on to the A30 dual carriageway, leading west to Cornwall and east to the University and Cathedral City of Exeter, and access to the M5 motorway. Exeter has mainline railway connections to all parts of the UK and Exeter International Airport now offers an extensive range of flights throughout Europe.
