Situated in a delightful rural location in the heart of Ruby Country (named after the local Ruby Red cattle), this area offers a haven of tranquillity.
Longwood itself, is located on the outskirts of the village with the nearest neighbour .5km away.
The village of Highampton offers a post office/ general store, church, primary school, village hall and well known thatched public house. The village is about 4 miles from the historic market town of Hatherleigh with where there is a range of shops including a Co-Op convenience store.
The larger towns of Okehampton and Holsworthy are both within a short drive and offer a more comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose supermarkets. Dartmoor National Park has hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt moorland scenery and many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. There are a number of bridleways and good out-riding as well as many miles of quiet lanes.
From Okehampton take the A386 north from the centre of the town and proceed for about 1.5 miles where you reach a T-junction at which you turn right. After about 5.5 miles you will come to a roundabout where you take the first exit onto A3072. Keep on this road until you reach the village of Highampton. As the road bears to the left, turn right and follow this road past the primary school. A short distance after the property will be found on your left.
