Farmhouse with 6/7 bedrooms, outbuildings including swimming pool and 1327 yards of double bank fishing rights.Holmingham Farm is located on a bend in the River Exe between Bampton and Tiverton. The Exe Valley is an unspoilt area of countryside with a huge variety of wildlife and great natural beauty.The River Exe is the main Salmon river in the West Country and one of the most prolific salmon rivers in England, which makes Holmingham Farm ideally situated for fishing in the surrounding waters.There is a pub within a short distance of the house. For everyday facilities the pretty town of Bampton is about 1.5 miles away and has a range of local shops, public houses, restaurants, doctor’s surgery and primary school.The majority of the attractive lawned gardens at Holmingham are to the south of the property. The boundary between the formal lawns and the pasture beyond is by way of a haha which allows spectacular views over the surrounding landscape. A large terrace immediately between the garden and the house gives a useful south facing area for entertaining, perfect for evening barbeques and enjoying the gardens and surrounding views of the countryside. This terrace also provides access to the outdoor heated swimming pool which is well enclosed, and has an open fronted entertaining barn surrounding it.Adjoining the farmhouse and separated by a covered passage way is a range of traditional stone outbuildings. These currently provide garaging and storage but could be suitable for a number of other uses subject to the necessary permissions. There is also a separate stable block with four timber stables, a store room, tack room, and open fronted hay and straw store.The LandThe land at Holmingham Farm provides a beautiful setting for the main house and providesthat much sought after seclusion and privacy. The land is mainly laid to pasture, with some areas of woodland. The land in total extends to about 83.29 acres and included some attractive river meadows which run down to the River Exe. The vendor has enhanced the land in recent times, planting woodland and improving the fencing and fishing access points.Importantly, there is a strip of land included in the sale of lot 1, the opposite side of the river.The local council have agreed to build a high stone wall along this area of land which will in time screen off the traffic from the road in to Bampton, which will only benefit the new owner.FishingThere is 1327 yards of double bank Salmon Fishing in a combination of 10 named pools, glides and runs stretching through the majority of the Farm.
