The property

On the edge of Sampford Courtenay, at the end of a private track shared with the owners’ thatched farmhouse, a beautiful and stylish home.

Carefully and lovingly created from a former barn, it is now a wonderful space for families and friends to relax.

From the main drive, your own gravelled stretch swings up to planted terraces and good-sized lawn.

To one side of the cottage, a peaceful terrace (table/chairs) with views over the village and surrounding countryside.

Four steps up to beautiful open-plan living/dining/kitchen (TV), all in muted tones, with woodburner at one end and kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, range-style cooker with induction hob) at the other.

Double bedroom (5' bed with footboard) with TV and smart en suite shower-room (suite).

Stairs lead down, beyond the original swede-shute, to two more bedrooms (TVs) - a double (footboard) with en suite shower-room (suite), and a large family room with a double (5' bed with footboard) abd twin beds (footboards).

Smart bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Utility room with washing machine and sink.

A well-thought-out modern place to stay in beautiful countryside and within easy reach of both the moor and the coast. Sampford Courtenay: one of the prettiest villages in the middle of Devon with lots of thatched cottages, masses of flowers, fine church and good food pub.

Coarse fishing, 1½ miles.

Dartmoor and Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, indoor swimming pool, cinema), 6 miles.

Exeter, about 20, the sea (Bude, splendid beaches), 28.

About the location


Okehampton 2.5 miles.

Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
