The property

… 3 miles from Chagford is Sandsgate, a magnificent detached house with superb sweeping views across the River Teign valley to Chagford, Castle Drogo and the moors beyond. It has been beautifully refurbished and extended with attention to detail and is large and roomy for one family, or flexible accommodation for groups of friends or family gatherings. Approached down ¼ mile of private drive, it’s set in 18 acres of large, lovely gardens with lawns, rockeries, ancient woodland and a prehistoric stone circle and is exceptionally peaceful. Exeter, a 20 minute drive, and the sea, 40 minutes; golf, wonderful walking and children’s attractions nearby.

A terrace (garden furniture) with far-reaching views stretches the whole length of the house. Three sets of French windows lead into the main reception rooms: large L-shaped living room with deep sofas, large inglenook (open fire), TV/Sky/DVD/Blu-ray; off it, a study; front entrance and cloakroom (loo); large T-shaped kitchen/dining room with massive dining tables/chairs, dresser, TV and toys for small children to play with whilst adults use the magnificent kitchen with dual-fuel range-style cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer and island with bar stools and granite worktops, or just relax in the sitting area and enjoy those views. Rear entrance hall/boot room and cloakroom (loo); adjacent utility room (two washing machines, two tumble driers, drinks fridge).

Stairs (top stairgate, second stairgate by request) up to beamed games room (22' x 12') with TV/Sky/DVD/Blu-ray, pool table and football table.

Also on this floor, shower-room (suite) and large beautiful bathroom (suite with jacuzzi bath and separate shower).

An excellent house in a lovely area. We were very impressed with the grounds, the views, the very good quality and extent of kitchen equipment provided, the comfortable lounge and the convenience of the boot room, as we frequently arrived back covered in mud during the rather wet week. The caretaker did everything asked of him. All told we were delighted with our stay. Thank you.
