  • Mr Wimblett

    “I stayed for the week over Christmas and had a great time.”

    The area is lovely, the owners were both friendly and helpful and the farm dogs are as friendly as all the other comments say. I would definitely recommend this property to others that want to stay in a farm or off the beaten track. The only thing I would say is that the enclosed garden isn't completely dog proof so if you have a smaller dog you can't just let them out in the garden unattended unless they won't be distracted by a working farm. That's only a minor thing and I am glad I chose ...

The property

11/3 miles from Drewsteignton, on a large beef and sheep farm (which you are welcome to walk and explore, with care), an ‘upside down’ detached cottage converted from a handsome Victorian barn adjacent to the farmhouse.

To one side and at the back, a neat enclosed garden (table/chairs, barbecue) with lovely long meadow views to Dartmoor.

Carp fishing in small pond available (bring your own rods).

Much thought and attention to detail has been given to this excellent cottage.From the garden, steps up to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/gas hob) with oak floor, TV/DVD, Amazon Fire stick and woodburner.

Stairs (stairgate) down to two bedrooms - a double (6' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and a twin with en suite shower-room (suite).

Lobby with space for coats/boots and door to front.

A great place to enjoy tranquillity and star-gaze. Drewsteignton: exceptionally pretty village (pub, PO/shop, restaurant, church) on a ridge a mile from the most spectacular part of the River Teign valley (wooded river-bank and heathland walks).

Marvellous scenery; fishing; extraordinary Castle Drogo (Nat.

Trust); Chagford, 3 miles; the open moor, 6; Exeter, 14.
