    “The accommodation was perfect for us.”

    Idyllic, peaceful, spacious, top quality and in the best location imaginable. Our little Schnauzer loved it too. Thank you very much to the owners for letting us share their beautiful cottage.

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 4pm.

Spring water.

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