The property

… ½ mile from the centre of Chagford, on the side of a hill with long views across the town to moorland beyond, a handsome Victorian detached house in beautiful gardens. To one side, a terrace (swing seat, picnic table, benches) and grassed area with fruit trees. Steps (gate at top) down to a lower terrace. You are also welcome to wander the 26 acres of field beyond and the large ponds (unfenced) below the house, a haven for wildlife (mallard, Canada geese); fly fishing permitted in one pond on a catch and release basis (bring your own rods). To the other side, beyond a driveway, are the owners’ stables and a few cottages which share use of the fields and ponds. 

Inside, very much a country home; relaxed, comfortable. Wood floors (rugs) downstairs, and large windows make it light and bright. Small porch to hall. Elegant living room (TV/DVD) with the views. Smaller sitting room with woodburner, TV/DVD and French windows to terrace. Bespoke kitchen (dishwasher, fridge freezer, range-style cooker/gas hob, TV/DVD) with breakfast table/chairs, off which a large sunroom, useful for damp coats/boots/dogs. Dining room with open fire. Office with woodburner, sofas and children’s toys. Cloakroom (loo). From the hall, uneven stone steps down to cellar with games room (pool table, table football), utility/drying room (washing machine, tumble drier) and door to lower terrace and ponds.

Stairs (stairgates) from hall up to four bedrooms – a large double (6'6" bed) with dressing room (day bed, space for cot) and en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower), a twin (2'6" beds, zip-linkable to 5' double) with views over the ponds, a double (washbasin) with princess-and-the-pea-style four-poster bed, and another smart double (5' bed, footboard) with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower); shower-room (suite). More stairs (stairgates) up to a large modern attic bedroom with 5' double bed and a single (footboard), the best views of all and smart en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath, two washbasins).

We had a lovely time in this "eclectically furnished" house! The beds were all comfy and the bedrooms had individual styles. It was perfect for a significant Birthday and was much admired by all our many guests. The "Predator" caused much discussion and was admired by Sci-Fi fans!! The views are stunning and the grounds lovely.
