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). An oasis of serenity with moorland walks virtually from the front door.

A fantastic property that exceeded our expectations. Very tranquil yet not too far from a town to get anything you need. We plan to visit the house again as it was perfect. The booking process with helpful holidays couldn’t have been easier. The perfect break from busy life!
