The property

… on the edge of Dartmoor, ½ mile from the small hamlet of Crockernwell and 1½ miles from Drewsteignton, a quirky, detached, Grade II* cottage sitting snug within its own 3 acre valley. Surrounded by cottage garden with small, enclosed area (chairs) to the front, and the rest roughly mown and well-stocked with stream and large pond (unfenced) with ducks (gardener attends on Friday afternoon). Paddock for ball kicking and running off steam, shared with the cat that lives in the barn at the end of the drive (tended regularly).


Inside and out, the cottage is the stuff of fairytales, but if you’re over 6’ or favour level floors and ceilings, then perhaps it isn’t for you! It’s full of character, with cross-passage hallway, low beams and doorways (most below 5’10”), exposed stonework and masses of charm. Porch (for boots/coats) to tiled hall and 2 steps down to modern fitted kitchen (dishwasher, combi-microwave, larder fridge, Aga) with French windows to decking and garden. Shower-room (suite, washing machine). Dining room (woodburner). Cosy living room (woodburner, TV/DVD). Snug/single bedroom. Two flights of uneven, steep, twisting stairs from the living room and dining room up to three interconnecting bedrooms – a single leading through to a double, with landing (reading corner) beyond; another double and bathroom (suite with separate shower). No children under 6 due to pond and unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility. Damages Deposit £200. An utterly unique, special place to stay in a fabulous spot, moments from Dartmoor and easily accessible from dual carriageway.
