In North Bovey, a pretty, 17th cent., Grade II listed, semi-detached, thatched cottage on the Dartmoor Way. Step down from the porch and you can follow the lane until it becomes a track and then stepping stones across the River Bovey and beyond. More walkers and horse riders pass than vehicles. To one side of the cottage, accessed across neighbour’s drive entrance, a long, narrow, secluded wooded garden with paved area (table/chairs) looking across Easdon Down and surrounding hills.
Living room with huge inglenook (woodburner), ancient beams, cosy window seat looking down the valley, TV/DVD and kitchen area (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker); to one side of the inglenook, a narrow doorway (5'10" lintel) with 2 steps down into little dining room with glazed door to front of cottage. Steep half-turn stairs up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed with footboard), and one with two singles (limited clothes-hanging space). Smart bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Outhouse with washing machine, tumble drier. A smashing get-away-from-it-all cottage in an enchanting village.
