Holmwood is situated within the small rural South Hams village of Staverton, around three miles north of Totnes. It is surrounded by rolling countryside and the village has a pub, close-by primary school at Dartington and historic church.

The nearby village of Broadhempston has a well-stocked community shop and the renowned Ben's Farm Shop and Riverford Field Restaurant is just a short drive away. Nearby Dartington is a centre for performing arts and cultural activities.

Everyday shops and amenities are well catered for by the towns of Totnes and Ashburton (6 miles). The A38 can be joined at Dart Bridge, Buckfatleigh (just seven minutes by car) giving swift access to the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter.

Holmwood is a traditional family home, offered for-sale for the first time in almost sixty years, with nicely balanced accommodation retaining many of its original features such as several attractive fireplaces, sash windows, tiled floors and ceiling cornices.

The house would now benefit from some general updating but has a modern shower room and an array of Solar PV panels benefitting from the feed-in tariff.

Outside, Holmwood is set well back from the road with lawned gardens and a driveway leading to a detached coach house/garage building built of brick with a slate roof. This substantial building has much potential for conversion to ancillary accommodation for an extended family, work place or letting unit, subject to any required consents.

Beyond the coach house lies a lovely old orchard with a variety of productive apple trees.


Entering Staverton from the Dartington/Huxhams Cross direction, pass over the bridge and steam railway and Holmwood will be found on the left shortly after the turning for Landscove.
