The property

… 3 miles from North Tawton, on a 150 acre sheep/beef family farm, is tranquil Jackdaws Cottage, recently converted from a granary into a comfortable home-from-home with glorious views over stunning mid-Devon countryside. Well maintained hardcore drive sweeps past paddocks (springtime lambs) and wildlife pond (unfenced) to gravel drive with gate into large enclosed garden with seating area (table/chairs, barbecue) sheltered by a pretty wisteria and jasmine-draped pergola. Games barn (table tennis, bar billiards, pool table, darts).

Hall (for coats/boots). Large living/dining room with TV/DVD, inglenook (‘living flame’ gas fire) with glazed doors to garden and those lovely views. Three shallow steps up to big kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with back door to garden. Ground-floor shower-room (suite). Stairs up to three bedrooms – two double (5' beds), one with 2 steps down to little balcony and one with TV/DVD, and a room with two singles; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Spring water. A lovely balm-to-the-soul place with plenty of space and easy access to Exmoor, Dartmoor and south Devon and north Cornwall coasts.
