A "unique" former tollhouse built in the early-1800s has gone up for sale.

The historic property - which was previously used as a saddler's shop, sweet shop and antique shop - is in Horrabridge, in Dartmoor National Park, Devon.

Mansbridge Balment Estate Agent Melanie Mansell said the property was a "real talking point" for villagers.

Despite being "compact", Ms Mansell said the property had lots of "benefits".

The Saddler's Shop consists of one main room which contains a fireplace and has an adjoining store room and a small garden area.

Ms Mansell said the property was near the A386 - a main route between Tavistock and Plymouth - and would be suitable for a "local artist or somebody using the shop for display purposes".

The Saddler's Shop is for sale via online traditional auction for offers at least £49,000.
