    “A beautiful property in a stunning location.”

    So much to do and so many facilities and things to do provided. I would live to stay here again.

The property

½ mile from Scorriton, in the tiny hamlet of Combe through which the River Mardle meanders to the beautiful, bouldered River Dart, a stunning detached cottage, once home to the author Mary Wesley and a haven from the modern world.

Across the little used single-track lane, a small enclosed orchard (picnic bench) and, beyond, a bluebell wood (deer, kingfishers) with the river on one side.

Behind the cottage, an enclosed lawned garden plus cobbled/paved terrace (table/chairs).

Inside, simple and elegant with pale wood and stone floors, soothing white palette and original art.

Step up from garden into magnificent oak-framed kitchen/dining room, fully glazed on two sides with the sleek kitchen (dishwasher, larder fridge, electric cooker) along the length.

Eight shallow steps down to snug living room (TV/DVD/Blu-ray) with woodburner.

Second living room with chaise longue and woodburner, a space for reading/writing.

Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, American-style fridge-freezer, sink) and bathroom (suite, hipbath plus hand-shower).

Upstairs (some low lintels), two bedrooms, simply furnished - an airy double (6' bed) with pitched ceiling, views over the garden and shower-room (suite) up 7 steps, and a twin tucked under the eaves, plus smart bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Arrival after 5pm.

Spring water.

A magical and sophisticated cottage in a tranquil, beautiful setting.

Due to the owners insurance no fires or barbecues are permitted at this property due to the thatched roof. Scorriton: small village (good food pub) on the beautiful sheltered and wooded southern slopes of the Dartmoor National Park.

Holne (pub, tea room, community shop), 1 mile.

Lovely walking/riding (stables nearby).

Buckfastleigh and A38 road, 3 miles; Ashburton, 5; Totnes (small town, weekly markets) 6.

The sea at Slapton Sands, 15 miles, or Salcombe (South Sands), 18.
