Accommodation Detail

  • Freehold

Believed to date from the 16th century, Yellands is a superb example of a granite built village house which unusually still retains its full burgage plot. The current owners have carried out a comprehensive program of renovation and improvement that includes a new slate roof and full rewiring plus the addition of a delightful oak framed garden room, yet the house retains its charm and character and offers spacious and well planned family accommodation in excellent order throughout.

Yellands is situated in the heart of the village of South Zeal which lies in the Dartmoor National Park. The village is well known for its medieval origins, and today is a thriving community with an excellent primary school, a popular village shop/delicatessen, a pub and a hotel. The village also benefits from easy access to the A30 with junction just 3 miles away, while Okehampton can be reached in 4 miles with Exeter just 18 miles distant.
