    “This was the perfect venue for a celebration family gathering.”

    The house is beautiful, warm, well equipped, comfortable and situated in a fantastic location. Lovely welcoming gestures such as fresh flowers in the rooms and fizz and cake on arrival. I highly recommend and will definitely book again when I have another big birthday!

The property

This lovely detached property is situated in a great location, down a driveway on a hillside, three miles from the Dartmoor town of Chagford.

This beautiful home is ideal for large families or gatherings of friends because it has a terrace that spans the entire width of the building and provides views of the Teign Valley and Castle Drogo.

The spacious sitting area includes an open fireplace, plush armchairs, and French windows that open to the patio.

You'll love spending time in the kitchen, another great space where you can dine around the sizable table, relax in the seating area while taking in views of Dartmoor, watch TV, or quickly whip up a dish while the kids play with the included toys.

Also accessible from a study are those time-wasting panoramas.

Take the stairs to the first floor to access a game area where you may play pool or table football or watch TV.

The huge master bedroom, complete with its own sunroom that leads you through to a balcony where you can stare over Castle Drogo with an evening drink, is the highlight of the property.

All the bedrooms are stylish, have beautiful views, and a TV.

The second level has two huge bedrooms under the eaves that share a bathroom, along with three further bedrooms, a shower room, and a gorgeous bathroom.

There is plenty of space for your four-legged buddy to wander in the exterior gardens, which are 18 enormous acres of magnificent tranquil natural grounds with lawns, ancient forest, and even a prehistoric stone circle.

Whether you are an ardent rambler or you simply want to enjoy the beauty of this beautiful area of Devon, there is plenty of activity to be found in the huge open expanses of Dartmoor.

Visit the National Trust treasure Castle Drogo, which is perched high above the Teign Valley.

Alternatively, spend some time in Chagford, which is nearby and, despite its diminutive size, offers a variety of activities including shops, restaurants, and an outdoor swimming pool.

Take a trip to Exeter, a stunning cathedral city with a diverse collection of attractions.

Select Sandgate as your new base in Devon.

Please note: This property can be booked with Sandsgate Lodge Ref: 1101508 together sleeping up to 16 guests.
