The property

Brackenmoor is situated in a peaceful mews style courtyard in the centre of Sticklepath village within the Dartmoor National Park.

The village has two pubs, a village shop and cafe, direct access to wonderful walking at Skaigh woods, straight on to Dartmoor and the National Trust Finch Foundry Museum with tea room.

The property has recently been completely refurbished to provide a luxurious base for even the most discerning holiday maker and it's been a complete labour of love. Furnished with many treasured artefacts from the owners' travels to the Middle East, Africa and Egypt, the character of the spacious open-plan ground floor has been optimised by exposing natural timber and granite walls with the addition of oak and delabole slate floors.

The split level sitting/dining room has a wood-burning stove and leads into the kitchen with new 5 ring ceramic hob, double oven, slimline dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer.

A tasteful use of colour has created a rustic-chic style with complete comfort and easy living in mind. On the first floor there is plenty of natural light with a galleried landing displaying artwork for sale by a local artist Kari McGowan.

Leading off the landing, two beautifully presented en-suite bedrooms of a modern/contemporary style with power showers and Egyptian linen have been designed with complete calm and relaxation in mind, to ensure a good nights sleep. Outside there is a pretty little garden with seat ideal for a cuppa whilst watching the world go by and a larger well maintained communal garden with private seating areas suitable for a BBQ.

Guests also have a private parking space around the back of the pretty courtyard. Whether it's summer and you want to enjoy the great outdoors or heart of winter and you just want to snuggle up in front of the wood-burning stove and watch a good movie or simply head to the pub, this place is the perfect country pad! Front door to hall.

Comfortable living/dining room with woodburner in large granite fireplace, beams, dining table/chairs, window seat and smart TV.

Kitchen (washing machine, microwave, fridge/freezer, electric cooker).

Upstairs, two bedrooms - a double (6' bed) with view over the village and en-suite shower room (suite) and a double (5' bed)).

About the location


Okehampton 5 miles.

The small village of Sticklepath lies along an old ridgeway path within the northern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park, and is home to a shop, two traditional pubs serving good food and the fascinating National Trust Museum of Rural Industry. Encompassed by superb countryside, the surrounding area is a haven for nature lovers, walkers and bird watchers alike, while the nearby town of Okehampton boasts the remains of a fine Norman castle which dominates sleepy River Okement. Visit the nearby vibrant city of Exeter, with its magnificent cathedral, outstanding restaurants and colourful nightlife. Within easy reach, the fabulous beach resort of Bude, with its golden sands and cascading waves attracts surfers from the country over, while Westward Ho! with its prestigious Blue Flag awarded beaches is well worth a visit. A superb location for friends and family alike.

Note: Please be aware - this building does have a number of steps and ledges inside: two in the living room, and two steps down into the main bathroom.
