Full description

Wapshott, E. + Morris, B., 09/04/2013, Land at Coombe Farm, Iddesleigh, Devon (Report - Survey). SDV355676.

The hamlet of Pixton lies to the south-east of Iddesleigh, with both the farmhouse and cottage being Grade II Listed buildings. The farm lies on a north-facing slope, facing the village of Iddesleigh across a wide shallow valley. The farmhouse with its wider views incoporating the turbine may be affected to a negative/moderate level.

Pixon marked, comprising several buildings broadly aligned north-south along the east and west sides of an extended yard with the farmhouse, orientated broadly east-west extending from the centre of the east side. The barn on the west side of the yard looks to have a horse engine house.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

Comparison with the Tithe Map shows the yard to have been enclosed across the north end and buildings added along the east and west sides at the south end.

The layout of the historic farmstead remains extant.
