A wonderful and compact property with equestrian facilities Litton Farm in Sandyway, South Molton, Co. Devon, has been put on the market by selling agents Savills.

Litten Farm has about 156.84ac and is available for purchase as a whole.

It is located: 4 miles from Withypool; 8 miles from South Molton; 6 miles from Exford; 10.5 miles from Dulverton; and 21.5 miles from Tiverton.

Communication links are excellent, with the M5 motorway at Junction 25 or at Junction 24.


Exmoor is renowned for its wonderful countryside, far-reaching views and stunning scenery. Litton Farm takes full advantage of all of these, occupying a very private location in the heart of the moor and yet is only a short distance from the centre of Withypool.

There are mainline rail links from Tiverton and Taunton, including London Paddington and airports at Exeter and Bristol.

Gardens and outbuildings

The gardens lie to the south of the house with a large stone cart shed that could be incorporated into the main accommodation, subject to the appropriate permissions. To the rear of the cart shed is a workshop, a dog kennel and a mono-pitched building.

Predominantly permanent pasture, the land is organic and within a mid-tier countryside stewardship scheme. The pasture land is split by hedgerows and stock fencing into good-sized grazing paddocks. The grassland is grazed under a licence from March to October each year.

The land extends to 156.84ac in all and comprises a mix of good-quality pasture, small pockets of woodland and scrub and is suitable for agriculture, equestrian, conservation or purely amenity use.
