The property

… ½ mile from the open moor and from a popular pub and about a mile from Throwleigh, in the peaceful hamlet of Aysh, a detached, 18th cent. stone cottage, originally a Devon longhouse. Wonderful walled garden to front with archway to orchard and meadows to wander and play games, leading down to a stream (small children should be supervised). You can walk out on to Dartmoor, and the ancient Mariners' Way walking route (Dartmouth to Bideford) passes through the hamlet.

Inside, elegant and uncluttered, a marriage of ancient building with 21st cent. comfort, with beautiful granite floors (rugs) downstairs. On one side of the cottage, cosy living room with woodburner in huge inglenook fireplace (no TV); simple kitchen (oil-fired cooking range, gas hob, larder fridge) with slate worktops, and utility room (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) with back door; on the other side of the cottage, up 2 steps, large living/dining garden room with lofty beams, gorgeous ornamental chimney breast and old bread oven and floor-to-ceiling French windows with garden and moorland views. From hall, stairs up to den area with table football, comfy seating and sofa bed (for alternative sleeping; curtains can be drawn for privacy); low lintels to two double bedrooms (one with 5’ bed); 2 steps up to bathroom (suite with sunken bath and separate shower). Meals available in owners' house. An oasis of serenity with moorland walks virtually from the front door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The weather was mostly sunny and warm apart from one day and there was lots to do in the area. We celebrated our 30th weddng anniversary with an 11 course Tasting Menu at The Treby Arms (about an hour away) and enjoyed both Lydford Gorge and Castle Drogo. We loved The Northmore Arms round the corner from the cottage - such a cosy pub with a roaring fire and hearty food.
