The property

The Garret, a three-storey home nestled in the Devon village of Chulmleigh, is a stunning property.

For couples looking for a romantic retreat, The Garret is an ideal location attached to the owner's home, with a contemporary decor that includes character features and a convenient position close to the town's shops and restaurant.

You'll find a laundry room on the shared ground floor, complete with a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so you can keep your holiday clothes looking their best!

Cook up your best culinary creations in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring underfloor heating, ready to savour at the dining table for two over a bottle of wine.

After dinner, kick-back and relax on the plush seating in the sitting room and watch your favourite series on the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove adds a gentle warmth and glow.

After a day spent at the beach or hiking through Devon’s vibrant countryside, freshen up with a hot shower in the stylish shower room.

Follow the stairs up to the second floor and you'll find a delightful double loft bedroom with exposed beams, Velux windows, and a charming reading nook with two armchairs, perfect for relaxing with a book!

As you ready for another day of exploration, start your day with a steamy cup of coffee from the espresso maker.

If you're looking for a place to go out to dine instead of cooking, the Red Lion and the Chulmleigh Tandoor Indian Restaurant are nearby, ideal for date nights and a hassle-free evening.

The town also offers a well-stocked convenience store where you can pick up fresh ingredients.

There is also an excellent 18-hole (par 3) golf course within the town spanning over 13 acres.

Hikers will love the nearby 180-mile Tarka Trail, which begins in Eggesford Forest and offers stunning vistas of the surrounding moorland as well as charming forest landscapes.

The national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor, which The Garret is midway between, offer additional walking opportunities.

Make the journey to Barnstaple, a thriving river port town, where you can visit the Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon, play a round of golf at Portmore Golf Park, or stroll along the River Taw.

Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, and Westward Ho! are all within easy reach from Barnstaple for a day of bathing on the sands and surfing.

Visit Exeter for a taste of city life, where you'll discover plenty of shopping, the ancient Exeter Cathedral, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, and Riverside Valley Park.

For a memorable stay in Devon, choose The Garret.

About the location

CHULMLEIGH

Winkleigh 6.3 miles; Barnstaple 18 miles; Exeter 25 miles.

Chulmleigh is a delightful village in the heart of Devon, with a real, old-fashioned community spirit. With its narrow cobbled lanes, rows of thatched cottages, courtyards and welcoming inns it is a pleasure to wander here in this relatively unspoilt part of Devon. It is a year-round destination, with summer gardens and winter walks to enjoy. The 180-mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest, which is on the banks of the River Taw, and follows a pretty route through woodland, and offers some spectacular moorland views. Chulmleigh is particularly good for birdwatchers, who can spot kingfishers, cormorants, goosanders and dippers along the quiet riverbanks. Fishing is a popular sport in the area, with salmon and sea trout in the rivers and coarse fishing on Catham Lakes and Huntacott Water. Chulmleigh is midway between the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and within easy reach of the rugged north Devon coast.
