Youngcombe is a unique and completely tranquil spot, tucked deep in the countryside, only a mile from the main Kingsbridge/Salcombe road with easy access to Kingsbridge (2 miles), Salcombe (5 miles) and the glorious South Devon beaches at Thurlestone (3 miles). This early Victorian farmhouse is very much a home from home property with every comfort provided and has a welcoming family atmosphere with good sized rooms, all extremely comfortably and attractively furnished including some lovely furniture and pictures. A charming, quiet and very rural retreat with spacious gardens and a local footpath close by that leads to Woolston and Salcombe. Originally the farmhouse of the land surrounding the property, the house, now owned separately, still feels very much part of the farm with the stables and courtyard just opposite. The farmland is grazed by dairy, beef cattle and sheep.
