An attractive and private former manor farm with large period Grade II Listed house, 2 bed cottage annex, range of holiday cottages with further potential and land extending to over 10 acres.


A highly attractive home and lifestyle business in a charming and accessible country location with no near neighbours and far-reaching views with excellent scope for further development.

The grade 2 listed farmhouse has flexible, well laid out accommodation, with an adjoining two bedroom refurbished cottage annexe providing the perfect multi-generational family living opportunity. Meanwhile, a courtyard of barns provides high quality and successful holiday letting cottages, with a fourth part converted with clear potential. The remaining property offers 10 acres of land and gardens with excellent workable gently sloping pasture, with modern and traditional outbuildings.

Situated amongst open countryside, the property benefits from a quiet position with no near neighbours. However, Norton Barton Manor is ideally placed for access with the A30 dual carriageway just 3 miles away. The hamlet of Broadwoodwidger is 2 miles, while the local towns of Launceston and Holsworthy, both approximately 10 miles, provide a wide range of services and amenities including schooling, range of shops, banks and supermarkets, including Waitrose in Holsworthy.

Locally, a particular attraction is the Roadford Lake, just 3 miles away and is reputed to be the largest area of freshwater in South Wet England and supporting a wide range of associated activities including sailing, kayaking, walking and cycling.

A train station at Okehampton is 15 miles, providing access to Exeter and the national mainline routes including London Paddington.
