The property

In the heart of Lustleigh, with lovely views over the village and churchyard and countryside beyond, a semi-detached Victorian cottage, once the infants’ part of a school dating from 1876.

Mostly to the front, a pretty garden surrounds it on two levels with your own two patios (tables/chairs, barbecue, firepit) and terraced lawn from which to enjoy this sleepy little village and the gorgeous view, and which opens to the friendly owners' adjoining garden.

From garden, door into living room with woodburner, TV/DVD and piano.

Kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker).

Shower-room (suite).

Stairs up to two bedrooms, both with period beams and wrought iron supports (some low, padding provided!) - a double (5' bed) with VDU/DVD and gallery looking through toughened glass (curtains) to downstairs, and one with two singles; loo between the two bedrooms.

A lovely spot, 150 yards from the tea room, pub and shop, with many scenic walking routes from the door. Lustleigh: pretty village (good food pub, church, PO/shop) nestled into the eastern edge of Dartmoor; ½ milefrom famous Lustleigh Cleave (dramatic, tree-filled river valley); close beyond it, the most varied and beautiful part of the moor.

Walking, riding, fishing (river/reservoir).

Golf, 3 miles; sea at Teignmouth, 10 miles, or Torbay, 12.

About the location

Lustleigh

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops and the famous Hedgehog Hospital, where visitors are encouraged to feed and hold the animals. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during winter. Newton Abbot has one of the only traditional working malthouses left in the UK, offering the finest selection of bottled beers in Devon. The nearby seaside towns of Teignmouth and Shaldon are very nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and farther afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.

Note: Towels are provided at this property at an additional charge.
