    “This is our second time to this cottage and we love it.”

    If you are looking for a tranquil, peaceful week this is the place to go. The beds are SO comfortable and we just loved sitting outside. Again we were so lucky with the weather. Review: If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to go. It has beautiful views and all you can hear are the sheep and cows. It is isolated (which we love) but it is a drive to get anywhere. However, my husband cycled lots (which is great if you like hills!). The woods and stream a short walk away are idyllic and our dog loved playing in the water there. The garden is not dog proof as my dog repeatedly got out but it was not an issue for us. He just crawled under the gate to get back each time. There are so many lovely pubs to visit. The beach is a good hour's drive away so although they are absolutely lovely you need to allow 1 -1.30 hours depending on traffic. We love Hedgelea as it's so peaceful and a place you can truly relax in. But if you are wanting quick access to amenities then it's not the place for you as there is no quick way out. I loved it.

The property

2 miles from North Tawton, close to tiny Bondleigh hamlet (church), a detached, single-storey cottage in a wonderfully tranquil and secluded spot with superb panoramic views over fields to the Taw Valley and Dartmoor.

Surrounding it, enclosed garden with terrace (table/chairs/bbq) and gentle steps down to lower lawn.

Nearby there are pretty walks beside the River Taw (350 yards).

The newly renovated interior combines 21st century comforts with a touch of nostalgia in beautifully restored original features and stripped floorboards.

Dining room with original range (ornamental) and valley views.

About the location


Winkleigh 3 miles; Okehampton 7.5 miles.

The charming country town of North Tawton quietly rests amidst lush green fields, high hedgerows and winding lanes, just eight miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches and rolling surf of the North Devon coast, this delightful town boasts picturesque thatched cottages and quaint pubs. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling, with many pretty little villages dotted throughout the area, and several excellent coarse fishing lakes and rivers, quality golf courses, and a number of National Trust properties within easy reach. There are few better spots from which to experience the joys of beautiful Devon.
