Lower Stowford Farm is a period Devon longhouse of immense charm and character that has been tastefully extended by the conversion of adjoining traditional farm buildings to provide a stunning modern family home in a traditional style.

The property, at Stowford, is set on the edge of a small rural hamlet with the dramatic North Devon coastline close by, offering surfing, sailing, walking and coasteering close to home.
