    “We loved using the aga, a cosy warm home”

    - Mrs Jones, October 2020

The property

In the centre of Holne, 100 yards from the shop and tea room, a beautifully restored Victorian cottage snuggling between two other cottages.

Once it was part of the village forge, now a comfortable, warm and delightful home with lovely oak floors (rugs) downstairs.

To the front, a neat gated garden; at the back, an equally neat enclosed garden on several levels (steps up) with small lawn (table/chairs).

Front door to living room with open fire and TV/DVD; off living room, a prettily decorated little bedroom with two single beds.

Kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with 5'10" door lintel, electric Aga for extra cosiness (October to Easter) and back door to garden.

Smart ground-floor bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Stairs from living room up to two double bedrooms, one with 5' bed and the other with access to one side of bed only; loo.

Just right for touring Dartmoor and the south coast or simply relaxing. Holne: village (community shop, tea rooms, pub) in one of the most beautiful, wooded, sheltered parts of the Dartmoor National Park.

Lovely walking/riding (stables nearby), salmon/trout fishing in River Dart (bouldered, beautiful).

Scorriton (good food pub), 1 mile; Dartmeet, 4 miles; Ashburton and A38 road, 5 miles.

The sea at Torbay, 15 miles.
