The property

Ilsington 3.4 miles.

Carefully designed to maximise space and light, this charming one-bedroom cottage, Beckaford View, is located in Manaton, close to Ilsington, Devon, in the breathtaking Dartmoor National Park.

Beckaford View accommodates two guests and is ideal for a restful retreat in Devon, featuring an open-plan living area with high-reaching windows which create an unrivalled light-filled space and wonderful views of the countryside, also a woodburning stove, and pet-friendly living.

Cross the threshold into your new home after unloading in the off-road parking space and get set to relax and unwind in front of the blazing woodburner while your partner whips up a meal in the well-equipped kitchen to be enjoyed at the breakfast bar.

If you'd rather take advantage of your scenic location, head outside to enjoy your meal alfresco with valley views reaching all the way from Lustleigh Cleave and out towards Teignmouth estuary.

When the stars come out, wash the day away in the chic shower room on the ground floor before retiring to the double bedroom on the mezzanine floor to get some rest.

This level features a glass divide allowing unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside so each new day begins with the ever-changing Dartmoor scenery.

Start your trip with the Hound Tor Deserted Medieval Village, the ideal location to explore evocative ruins and enjoy a picnic.

Don't forget to stop by Haytor Rocks, where you can take in the breathtaking scenery of Dartmoor and south Devon.

Becky Falls is also less than a mile away: set in 50 acres of scenic woodland with dog-friendly walking trails, a cafe and of course the spectacular waterfalls.On days when you don't feel like cooking, you can treat your significant other to hearty food at the local pub or shop for the necessities in Ilsington.

Alternatively, spend the day in Exeter, a bustling city that is home to Exeter Cathedral, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, and the Medieval Exe Bridge in addition to a wide variety of dining and shopping options.

Ideally situated to explore Torquay's attractions, such as the Torquay Museum, beach and golf course.

Take your significant other on a romantic getaway to Beckaford View.
