The property

... 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).

I can appreciate that some people want the world when selfcateringbut maybe higher easy chairs in the cottage sitting room. Apart from that the wholesome ambience of the house is relaxing. Despite that thought of Roundheads rampageing through in an earlier centuary! Chagford has a splendid recycling centre, Proper Job, where last week there were chairs and sofas of comparable quality as those in the cottage, some newer, and more comfortable, higher and cheap. There is no need to buy new these days. This is our third year at Hole Farm, the house is in my heart, hoping to return again some day
