To one side of the cottage, your own sloping and rough lawn (drop at one side) with patio (table/chairs) and apple trees. Across the yard, an open-fronted barn. A sloping gravelled path (8 steps) leads around the cottage to the patio and front door. Inside, open-plan living/dining/kitchen with woodburner, TV/DVD and, along one wall, a compact kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker). Two bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a single (limited clothes-hanging space). Smart shower-room (suite). No children under 5, except pre-crawling babies, due to drop in garden.

HORRABRIDGE Tavistock 4.5 miles; Plymouth 11.5 miles. Horrabridge is a charming riverside village located within beautiful Dartmoor National Park in Devon. The River Walkham, well known for its salmon fishing, flows vigorously under the village bridge, which is said to be the oldest in West Devon. An excellent base for a holiday in Devon, Horrabridge has a combination of olde-worlde charm and modern facilities, including a good pub near the river and a selection of small shops. There are many excellent walks starting from the village, taking you up onto Dartmoor and providing you with glorious views of the surrounding fields and hills where sheep and Dartmoor ponies gently graze. The market town of Tavistock, the main town of Dartmoor's western moor, is an exceptionally attractive town, owing much to fine Victorian architecture and its picturesque location on the banks of the River Tavy. There is no shortage of shops and cafes in Tavistock, plus the town is home to the purpose built Pannier Market - a must for every visitor.
