A picturesque Grade II Listed thatched house, with four bedrooms, two double garages & outbuildings

Chilton Fold is a delightful period thatched cottage, with four bedrooms, set in a beautiful rural location, three miles from the historic Devon market town of Crediton. The property, dating from the early 16th century, is Grade II Listed, has a charming appearance, with its thatched roof and cob walls, and plenty of exposed timber and original features inside. Its timeless character is enchanced with high-speed fibre optic broadband to the premises.

The property boasts four reception rooms to the ground floor, each of which is comfortable and welcoming. The sitting room features a large original brick fireplace, with timber lintel, which now houses a woodburning stove, while there is also a dining room with an open fireplace, a music room with attractive timber panelling, and a light and airy garden room – a more modern addition to the property. The kitchen, a former dairy, has country style units and a range cooker, plus space for a breakfast table.

There are three double bedrooms upstairs, each of which features fitted storage, with the master bedroom including a washbasin and shower, while the second bedroom also has a washbasin. There is a further double guest bedroom found on the ground floor.


The property is accessed via a five-bar wooden gate, which opens onto a driveway with ample parking space. The driveway leads around the house to the two double garages which provide good storage space. An additional outbuilding with light and power provides a workshop and further storage space. The property also features pretty gardens to the front and rear, which are mostly laid to lawn, with some paved terracing, mature trees and established hedgerow borders.


The property is set in the tiny hamlet of Chilton, surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside. The village of Cheriton Fitzpaine is just under two miles away, offering a village store and post office, two local pubs and a primary school. The small town of Crediton, just over three miles away, offers further local amenities, including an award-winning farmers' market, a range of local shops and large supermarkets, restaurants, cafés and leisure facilities. Golf is available at Downes Crediton Golf Club. The bustling town of Tiverton is 10 miles to the north, while Exeter is also easily accessible, with its vibrant city centre and excellent choice of shops. There is a mainline station at Crediton, offering services to Exeter, while Exeter St. David’s provides regular services to London. For road connections, the M5 is 13 miles away.
