There is also a bungalow divided into two high quality one bedroom holiday lets, paddocks and barn providing options to expand the current business subject to planning. The business can be viewed at www.leggefarm.co.uk.


The farm is set about 200 metres down its own private drive leading from a minor country lane. The village of Highampton is about a mile away with its parish church, primary school and public house. About three miles distant by road is the next village of Sheepwash, with its famous Half Moon Pub well known for its extensive fly fishing on the River Torridge, as well as a good reputation for food and there is also a village community shop. The nearby small town of Hatherleigh offers mini supermarket, petrol station, auction room, doctors surgery, shops and pubs. The towns of Okehampton and Holsworthy both provide wider shopping facilities and secondary education including Okehampton Community College and Waitrose supermarkets in both towns. Bude on the West coast lies about 30 minutes away by car to the offering surfing beaches and cliff top walks. Just beyond Okehampton is the A30 dual carriageway giving access to the cathedral City of Exeter and access to the M5 motorway, main line railway station and international airport. Also just beyond Okehampton is the wild expanse of the Dartmoor National Park, with its extensive opportunities for outdoor recreation.
