Proceed out of Exeter in an easterly direction through Heavitree and follow the signs onto the A30 towards Honiton. Take the first exit left, after going under the motorway bridge. Continue past the Science Park, then take the right hand turning opposite The Black Horse Inn. Follow the signs leading back over the A30 and into the village. Before the turning to the church, bear right and after a short distance, turn right and head up a private drive where the property is at the far end.


The property is located in an elevated position within Sowton Village, which has a church and village hall nearby and offers excellent access onto the M5 and A30. The property is ideally placed for easy access to the Science Park. Close by is the village of Clyst St. Mary which has a shop / post office, pub, garage and Primary and Pre-school. There are delightful rural walks nearby with an array of public footpaths to explore. Exeter city centre, which is approximately 5 miles to the west, provides excellent sports and leisure facilities being situated on the river and offering a selection of theatres, cinemas, museum, cathedral, football, rugby and leisure centres. Both Aldi and Sainsbury’s can be found approximately 3 miles from the property, via Cumberland Way which bypasses Pinhoe, which boasts a good range of facilities. Rail links to London Paddington take around two hours from Exeter St. David’s, or there are connections to London Waterloo from either Pinhoe or Cranbrook stations. Exeter Airport is approximately 2.5 miles away providing regular air services to the UK and International destinations.
