The property

Nestling between the patchwork green fields of Devon's rural countryside and the wild rugged moorland of Dartmoor, sits this enchanting thatch cottage.

Its position is tucked away down a private country lane, among a handful of cottages in the tiny hamlet of Higher Rexton near the village of Broadwoodwidger and the Devon/Cornwall border.

Look forward to time spent exploring the wilderness of Dartmoor, where inspiring walks through valleys and pasture will lead you to ancient moorland villages and cosy country inns.

Head West to the North Cornish for days on the beach or to hike the dramatic cliff tops, guaranteed to invigorate the senses and recharge weary souls.

Or, simply unwind in the company of family and friends, where winters evenings can be spent beside the flickering flames of the log fire, enjoying golden sunsets over the moorland, or sharing stories of the day over a bottle of wine in the southwest facing conservatory that overlooks the private enclosed garden. Damson cottage is the perfect country escape where the night owl is the only sound to break the dark silence.

Brimming with character and original features; exposed timber beams, hand-made latched wooden doors, a spiral stone staircase and low sloping ceilings are all evidence of the history of this quintessential thatched country cottage.

A welcoming sitting room is furnished with cream sofas arranged to enjoy the warming glows emanating from the log burner that sits inside a large inglenook fireplace.

A bespoke farmhouse kitchen will inspire chefs of the family who can conjure up meals on the Rangemaster cooker with induction hob.

Mealtimes can be enjoyed in the recent addition to the cottage; a large spacious conservatory leading out into the sunny enclosed garden with private gated access to a public footpath for walks in the valley below.

There are three bedrooms, one with private shower room.

Please note that access to one bedroom is very narrow with a low sloping doorway.

There is a family bathroom on the ground floor.
