  • Richard

    “A beautiful property.”

    It's chief attraction is the secluded location. A real getaway from the rat race with glorious views over Dartmoor

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.

Step up to door to neat kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, Espresso machine, microwave, large larder fridge, electric oven/induction hob) with slate floors; pantry (freezer).

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

Living room with open fire, TV/DVD/Blu-ray and music system.

Rear hall (coat/shoe storage) with back door to terrace.

A peaceful and picturesque spot, with good access for exploring this scenic area of Devon.

North Tawton: small town (shops, three good food pubs, excellent fish and chips, church, children's play park) beside the river Taw, in rolling farmland 6 miles from Dartmoor (lovely views of it from hilltops).

The 180-mile Tarka Trail (cycling, walking) passes through.

Exeter (city), 15 miles; beaches (Bude, Exmouth), about 26.

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.
