A lovely detached hideaway, dating from the 16th century, situated near the pretty churchyard at High Bray, a hamlet that lies above the picturesque village of Brayford in North Devon

Set in a beautiful rural community close to the western edge of Exmoor, Old Church House is surrounded by  magnificent countryside. Ideally located for easy access to Exmoor's spectacular moorland and coastline and within easy driving distance of the sandy beaches of  Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe.


The space
Overflowing with original character features including oak beams, stone fireplaces and multi pane windows throughout, Old Church House is a comfortable, traditionally furnished period house. As with many houses of this era there are some uneven floors, low ceilings and beams in parts (the lowest beam is 1.78mx/5ft 10" and the lowest ceiling at 1.96m/6ft 5" – both in the kitchen).

The front door leads into the central hallway with a bench seat/shoe rack perfect for muddy shoes, useful downstairs toilet and cloakroom space. Off the hallway is a spacious living room with an attractive beamed fireplace housing a wood burning stove, comfy seating to take advantage of the many books provided and views out onto the front garden or to the churchyard at the rear. The well-equipped dual aspect kitchen features a large kitchen table, oak units, large butler sink, electric cooker and hob and wood burning stove. The kitchen door leads onto to the garden and can also be used for external access.

Upstairs the galleried landing and the higher ceilings give a spacious feel. The three bedrooms are traditionally furnished in a mix of styles and are served by a family bathroom. Outside and to the front is a cottage style garden, while a small terraced area to the side is ideal for a relaxing drink. To the rear a small area furnished with a bench seat catches the afternoon sun and overlooks the churchyard.


Perfect for walkers and families alike Old Church House offers a relaxing and comfortable base from which to explore this beautiful area.

Guest access
Guests will have use of the entire house and front garden patio area
