Situation Bridgend is a hamlet community at the head of the Creek between the twin villages of Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo. The setting is delightfully rural & yet still walking distance from the centre of both villages and on the doorstep of superb countryside and riverfront footpaths. The public slipway at Bridgend is literally just opposite bringing a 'waterside living' lifestyle to the nearby homes. More comprehensive boating facilities are then also available just across the Creek at Bridgend Quay.
The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butcher, Co-operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro, tea-rooms & good Primary School. The holiday retreats and full time residences have found a comfortable balance that propel this thriving community with countless clubs and activities available. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport is also easily accessible.
Description The Old Barn Cottage is a detached property providing a delightful home, ideal as a permanent residence, but also well suited as a holiday retreat. The multiple terraced rear private garden, double garage and parking are all rare local features for a property of this age. UPVC windows, gas central heating, kitchen and bathroom fittings ensure the cottage is both comfortable and relatively low maintenance.
