    “Lovely house but quite remote.”

    We thought we could walk to the pub but it was quite hilly and either on muddy paths( it had deluged for our first couple of days) or on narrow lanes with no footpath. We made up for this by lunching out a lot!! ...

    We thought we could walk to the pub but it was quite hilly and either on muddy paths( it had deluged for our first couple of days) or on narrow lanes with no footpath. We made up for this by lunching out a lot!! Kitchen extremely well equipped other than no lidded large casserole.. yes I’m being picky. But it did have both hand mixer and separate blender!! Dog and grandchildren fascinated by young cattle in adjoining field....me fascinated to find owned by Michael Jecks the novelists family.

The property

In glorious rolling Devon countryside, 2½ miles from Sandford and the award-winning dining pub, a gorgeous, Grade II listed, thatched, detached house with 16th century origins, looking over green meadows and wooded hedgerows.

At the back, a suntrap patio (table/chairs, barbecue, lighting) for alfresco meals and evening drinks, steps (gate) up to enclosed lawn and, at the front, a field for energetic ball games and letting off steam.

Inside, a smart and peaceful haven with original charm and history including warmly patinated panelling, beams, low lintels (from 5'8") and uneven walls, beautifully combined with stylish modern comforts.

Porch to large well-equipped kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric range-style cooker, iPod dock) with glazed doors to garden.

Big, cosy living room with massive inglenook fireplace (woodburner), ancient panelling and TV/DVD.

A fabulous, welcoming retreat in a beautiful tranquil spot for relaxing and walking, with lots of country footpaths to explore.
