With over 40,000 inhabitants including nearby villages, Barnstaple is a thriving town near to beautiful beaches and countryside, and the centre of North Devon in commerce, culture, education and service provision. It has a wide variety of businesses attracting tourists and permanent residents year-round, including a vibrant and diverse collection of bars and restaurants for evening footfall. Barnstaple is easily reached via the A361 which leads to the M5 at Junction 27, has a station with hourly trains to Exeter at peak times, and Exeter airport is an hour away. The town is rapidly expanding with several new housing and commercial developments currently underway, and more than 5,000 new houses and further economic development planned for the near future. The notable towns of Bideford (9 miles), Woolacombe (14 miles), Ilfracombe (12 miles), South Molton (12 miles) and Torrington (14 miles) are also nearby.


The property is accessed across a private Mews style cobbled lane from The Strand (Customs House Yard) and sits behind Azets Accountants.


Believed to have originally been a cottage, the building was subsequently added to and reconfigured to more latterly form office accommodation over two floors totalling c. 3,500 sq.ft (325 sq.m).  The property is principally of rendered stone and brick elevations with pitched and slated roofs.  To the rear of the property is a small patio area.  It should the noted that the property requires significant improvement works.
