Vendors quote: We spent twenty very happy years in Jaxon house, it was such a fantastic spacious homely house to live in. Ipplepen is a lovely village with so many different activites/events for all ages so there is a really lively, interesting community. Orley common, a fedw minutes up the road was our favourite place for dog walking and has wonderful views accross Dartmoor. We also loved being a short drive from Totnes, Newton Abbot and the beaches of Torbay and Teignmouth. One thing we will really miss is our lovely neighbours.
