The property

… between Throwleigh (1 mile) and Gidleigh (1 mile), a beautifully renovated, late medieval cottage sheltered by oak trees. It has a well restored barn attached and faces south over its own neat, walled garden where you can sit in the sun and listen to bees, birdsong and the occasional cluck or honk of the friendly owners’ chickens and geese. The owners run the farm, where cattle, sheep and ponies are grazed, and the cottage is part of the historic group of farm buildings with its ancient farmhouse.

Inside, very smart with slate floors downstairs and beautiful oak floors upstairs. Hall; step down to compact living/dining/fitted kitchen (microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with granite worktops, folding dining table/chairs, huge fireplace (woodburner), TV/DVD and door (5’3" lintel) to small garden; shower-room (suite, big cubicle); washer-drier in cupboard. Stairs up to two bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space) – step down to a roomy double (5' bed, TV) with handsome roof timbers and original ancient stairs down to the living room (you don’t need to use them), and a twin (2'6" beds, linkable to 5' double). Spring water. A lovely retreat with wonderful walking directly on to the moors from your doorstep; abundant wildlife and moorland archaeology.

The place

Gidleigh: pretty hamlet with 16th cent. church and castle (in private grounds), 2 miles from Chagford, ¾ mile from the open moor (short walk to fine prehistoric stone circle and a lovely stretch of the North Teign River - wild swimming), and on the beautiful Mariners’ Way footpath.

This was a return visit to a property and area we very much enjoyed a few years ago, and did not disappoint. Our only comment would be that had there been four adults we would have found it a bit of a squash in the living area, but two active couples who get on well together or a small family should be OK. My husband is beginning to have a few minor mobility problems with an arthritic knee, so would have liked somewhere to sit with a view - but that is something we will need to take into account for future holidays. The locality is fantastic for walking.
