    “The photographs for the cottage make the rooms look quite large, they are in fact small.”

    I think that people should be made aware that the door way into the dining room is very narrow. If you were very tall and over weight you probably would'nt be able to get through it!

    - Mrs Griffin, May 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback, we are sorry if you missed the mention of the narrow doorway in our description, where we do also mention the height of the low lintel. Owner relations

The property

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.

Ring of Bells Inn in walking distance.

North Bovey: postcard-pretty village (medieval church) with tree-shaded green in the beautiful wooded valley of the mini River Bovey, two lane-miles from the spectacular open moor around Manaton or Moretonhampstead.

Bovey Castle (hotel, good restaurant, golf), about 2 miles.
