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.
