Holmingham Farm is located in a particularly attractive part of the Exe Valley, lying on a bend of the river between Bampton and Tiverton. The area is known for its stunning landscape with a huge variety of flora and fauna. It is at Holmingam Farm that the Exe is joined by one of its tributaries, the River Batherm. The River Exe is the main salmon river in the west country and one of the most prolific salmon rivers in England.

A local pub lies on the boundary of the farm and the market town of Bampton is only about 1.5 miles away offering a range of local shops, public houses, doctor’s surgery and primary school.

Tiverton lies approximately 6 miles to the south offering a wider range of social, scholastic and shopping facilities including the renowned Blundell’s School.

The cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 21 miles to the west, whilst J27 offers convenient access from the north Devon link road to the M5 motorway.

There are regular train services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway railway station which is approximately 12 miles from the holding. Bristol and Exeter airports are within easy reach providing regular shuttle connections to major airports in the country and abroad.

In addition to the fishing, the area is renowned for a range of equestrian and sporting activities. Areas of the woodland have been used for simulated game days. There are numerous quality shoots within the region and other sporting opportunities include racing at Newton Abbot, sea fishing from Exmouth and golf at Tiverton and Woodbury.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.
