    “Lovely secluded cottage tucked away in Dartmoor.”

    Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely the place to stay if you’re looking for seclusion and s bit of piece and quiet.

The property

Between Throwleigh (1 mile) and Gidleigh (1 mile), a beautifully renovated, late medieval cottage sheltered by oak trees.

It has a well restored barn attached and faces south over its own neat, walled garden where you can sit in the sun and listen to bees, birdsong and the occasional cluck or honk of the friendly owners’ chickens and geese.

The owners run the farm, where cattle, sheep and ponies are grazed, and the cottage is part of the historic group of farm buildings with its ancient farmhouse.

Inside, smart with slate floors downstairs and beautiful oak floors upstairs.

Hall.

Step down to compact living/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with granite worktops, folding dining table/chairs, huge fireplace (woodburner), TV/DVD and door (5'3" lintel) to small garden.

Shower-room (suite, big cubicle).

Washer-drier in cupboard.

Stairs up to two bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space) - step down to a roomy double (5' bed, TV) with handsome roof timbers and original ancient stairs down to the living room (you don’t need to use them), and a twin (2'6" beds, linkable to 5' double).

Spring water.

A lovely retreat with wonderful walking directly on to the moors from your doorstep; abundant wildlife and moorland archaeology. Gidleigh: pretty hamlet with 16th cent.

church and castle (in private grounds), 2 miles from Chagford, ¾ mile from the open moor (short walk to fine prehistoric stone circle and a lovely stretch of the North Teign River - swimming), and on the beautiful Mariners’ Way footpath.
