  • “A lovely place, very kind and helpful owners, absolutely to recommend”

    - Mr Welsch, June 2019

The property

On the edge of Manaton, an exceptional conversion of an ancient granite barn into a spacious cottage in a beautiful place.

Peaceful, sheltered, it is on a lane in a hamlet of old cottages, farmhouses and trees, 400 yards from Manaton’s pub and about ½ mile walk through woods from Lustleigh Cleave and the River Bovey.

Next door to the owners’ former mill (water wheel), it has its own charming natural garden (lawn, boulders, oak trees, daffodils, garden furniture, barbecue).

Woodland/moorland walks from the cottage.Inside, excellent decor, lighting, furnishings: comfort and warmth; immense trouble taken.

Upstairs, all open-plan - picture windows at each end - divided into living (woodburner, TV/Sky/DVD) and dining area and large, well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, larder fridge, freezer, electric cooker) with granite worktops and pine floor.

Stairs (stairgates) down via half-landing (half-glazed door to garden) to hall, front door and two very pretty bedrooms - a king size double, and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

A tranquil escape. Manaton: pretty little village (pub with small shop, tennis court, playground, church) in a beautiful part of Dartmoor, and close to spectacular rock tors (Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose) and lovely tree-filled valleys (Lustleigh Cleave).

Golf driving range, 5 miles.

Nearest shop, 5 miles.

Riding stables not far; Chagford, 6; the sea (Teignmouth/Torbay), 15.
