The property

A mile from Ilsington, in the tiny farming hamlet of Lounston, a rural, detached, ‘upside down’ cottage for two.

Tucked away down a farm track (partly unmade), there is good walking from the doorstep on footpaths/quiet lanes.

Behind the cottage, a raised garden, mostly grassed with paved area (table/chairs).

Across the lane, an acre of private woodland conservation area to explore (own risk; dogs on leads) with picnic bench and wildlife ponds (unfenced - care needed; visited/tended occasionally by the owners’ family).

Inside, stylishly done with charming touches.

From the garden, 2 steps up to door into living/dining room with neat kitchen area (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with oak floor (rug) and TV/DVD/Blu-ray.

Downstairs, a fabulous roomy double bedroom (zip-linked 6' bed or twin, TV/DVD) with step down to en suite bathroom (suite, deep double bath and separate shower, washing machine in cupboard).

No children, except pre-crawling babies.

An excellent spot for those seeking peace, nature or a romantic hideaway.Two small or one large well-behaved dogs welcome.

Dogs are not permitted downstairs in the bedroom area.

Ilsington: pretty little village (church, shop, good food pub) on Dartmoor's farmed and wooded south-eastern slopes, through which flows the River Lemon to Teignmouth, its ancient wooded valley a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and habitat for woodland birds and butterflies.

Haytor (massive granite outcrop), 2 miles.

Easy access to A38, 2½ miles.
