... 2 miles from Chagford, a mile from the open moor, a thatched, detached, Grade I listed, medieval Dartmoor longhouse, stone mullion-windowed, full of history. The Civil War was fought through it, Roundheads besieged in the kitchen. It is set in its own clean, private farmyard/courtyard of listed farm barns in front, with large, mainly lawned garden (unfenced 5' drop, small children beware) behind with patio (table/chairs) and orchard (swing); 130 acres of farmland surround it. Medieval threshing barn (45' x 15', unheated) in courtyard (plus large gazebo) available for parties/activities, by arrangement (extra).

Inside, full of character. Porch; thick oak door to central passage, off which utility room (washing machine, two tumble driers, fridge-freezer) with loo; bathroom (bath plus hand-shower, washbasin). Living room with huge inglenook open fire, oak floors, beams, window seat, terrific ancient screen panelling, TV/DVD; study with jigsaw puzzle table; 4 uneven steps up to large kitchen/dining room with brick floor, Aga (low heat May to October) plus electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge, refectory table seating 10, window seat, stone mullion window.

Two sets of steep, uneven stairs from the living room up to four wood-floored (rugs), white-walled bedrooms (all beds with footboards).

We thoroughly enjoyed the location and accommodation which was very clean inspite of the charming old age of the property . We will try very hard to return.
