    “It was very large, homely and comfortable and the best Sykes cottage we’ve ever been in.”

    We’d come again….

The property

On a quiet leafy lane 1½ miles from Diptford, a south-facing cottage surrounded by 2 acres of the friendly owners’ woodland.

The pretty stream that once fed this former mill trickles soothingly past their linked but private extension and continues outside your own enclosed, sunny, gravelled garden (table/chairs, barbecue).

Across the lane, grassy area (picnic bench) beside the stream (unfenced here, care needed) for relaxing amongst peace, nature and birdsong.

Simple and stylish furnishings, white walls and pine floors (rugs).

Six steps up to hall, with handrail.

Good-sized living room (TV/DVD) with open fire.

Dining room with woodburner (logs provided) and fridge-freezer.

Neat slate-floored kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, electric cooker).

Open tread stairs (stairgates) up to first-floor landing (quiet reading area with armchair and balustrade) and three bedrooms - two double (one with 5' bed) and a twin (footboards, limited clothes-hanging space), all with leafy views and sounds of the stream.

Smart bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and shower-room (suite).

Spring water.

A peaceful haven near beautiful beaches, interesting towns and villages and Dartmoor. Diptford: village in lush South Hams farmland above the River Avon valley (fishing).

Totnes (town), 5 miles; Dartington Hall (arts centre, craft shop), 7; Kingsbridge, 8.

The sea (beaches) at Blackpool Sands, Bigbury-on-Sea or Thurlestone, about 11 miles; Dartmouth (town), 12; Dartmoor, 5.

Very central for lots to see/do.

Nearest pub, 2 miles.
