The property

... in a peaceful spot on the edge of Abbotskerswell with rolling fields and woodland beyond, a large, south-facing, detached, family home. Two acres of enclosed garden (mostly grass - sloping in parts, big trees, good planting, gazebo with table/chairs/barbecue) surround it, with terraces and well-positioned seating to enjoy sun all day. At the top of the garden (care needed with young children), play fort with slide/ladder and toddlers' swing.

Inside, extremely comfortable and well-equipped, own home feel; plenty of space with good-sized rooms, smart fabrics/furnishings, lots of pictures. Prettily furnished living room with woodburner and TV/Sky/DVD, and dining room with big oak table and grandfather clock, both rooms with oak floors (rugs), beams and French windows to large paved terrace (tables/chairs) and the garden. Lovely heart-of-home kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas-fired Aga, electric cooker) with granite worktops, central island (larder fridge, wine fridge, breakfast bar for 2), and, at one end, breakfast area (table/chairs) with double doors to snug/study/play room with comfy seating, TV/DVD, toys and desk. Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, sink) with back door to cobbled courtyard and steps up to garden. Downstairs loo.

Upstairs (stairgates), four bedrooms – the master double (6’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite, power-shower) and arch to dressing/cot area; a pretty double (5’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite); a twin, and a room with 3’ bunk beds. Smart family bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand shower).

Outside steps up from the terrace and courtyard to garden and part-covered dog run.

Single folding bed (for dressing/cot area or snug) and stairgates available, by arrangement. Pets permitted in dog run, kitchen and utility room only. Damages Deposit £250. A lovely family home, brilliantly positioned for coast, moors and exploring further afield.

Plum tree Cottage was a large comfortable home for us all. The garden was lovely with many places to sit out. and enjoy the sun. Sky Tv was fun plus board games and books. All rooms were large and very clean. 2 adults and 4 children had a great time with local attractions all within easy reach.
