    “Just two marginal inconveniences: 1) parking at the cottage is complicated.”

    2) it would be great if one could get through to the care taker via phone. Cottage itself was superb, comfy and great to stay in! :-)

The property

Just 150 yards from the pub and shop in Ilsington and for centuries the village forge, the prettiest of thatched, detached cottages with a sunny little enclosed garden (table/chairs, bench, barbecue, bicycle store) looking to the neighbouring church (bells Sunday mornings/Wednesday evenings). Inside, comfortable and welcoming with good-sized rooms, polished wood floors (rugs) and, from upstairs (high apex beams, Veluxwindows/sloping eaves), pretty countryside/church views.

Terracotta-tiled entrance lobby (space for coats/boots) to comfy living room (TV/DVD/PVR) with ‘living flame’ gas stove.

Kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven, Bluetooth stereo).

Ground-floor double bedroom.

Two smart shower-rooms (suites) with tiled floors.

Rear porch/utility (washing machine, freezer) with stable doors to garden.

Upstairs (steep narrow stairs, rope rail), making the most of the lofty eaves space and the views, a double bedroom and a room with two singles (both doors/lintels approx. 6' x 2').

No children under 6, except pre-crawling babies, due to steep stairs.

A ‘chocolate box’ cottage in a friendly village location, an excellent base for wonderful walks and cycle rides. 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.
