Winding Devon lanes lead to this pretty, detached, thatched cottage alongside a bridlepath on the side of the Cottwood Valley.

This rural cottage has lovely views of wooded hills beyond and easy access to beautiful woodland and river walks in an unspoiled corner of Devon.

Large open-plan hall and beautiful kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, fridge, electric oven/induction hob) with woodburner.

From the hall, step down to large living room with huge fireplace (woodburner) and TV/DVD.

Step up to utility room (useful for wet dogs/boots) with washing machine, tumble drier, freezer, microwave, fridge, sink and door to garden.

Downstairs bathroom (suite plus hand-shower).

Steep stairs (stairgates, low lintel) up to three bedrooms - step up to a large triple-aspect double (5' sleigh bed) and views, and step up to a double overlooking pretty garden and a twin (2'6" truckle, linkable to 5' double), both with limited clothes-hanging space.
