This attractive Grade II cottage dating back to the 1700s is in the centre of Ashburton, a stannary town in the Dartmoor National Park.
Handy for the attractive independent shops and wine bars of this thriving moorland town, this is the perfect location for family and friends to get out into the Devon countryside and enjoy the beauty of Dartmoor and return in the evening to this lovely cottage.
There is a warm and welcoming feel to this holiday home, the oak floors, exposed stone and decorative inglenook fireplace give the cottage a lot of character.
The sitting room is spacious and ideal for all the family to relax in the deep leather sofas or eat locally sourced food together followed by a friendly game of pool.
Also the ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen with a large Range cooker and a breakfast area, perfect for the kids to sit whilst parents enjoy some leisurely cooking.
Once three cottages, the layout is slightly quirky with two staircases.
From one, there is a double bedroom and shower room, and from the other is a double bedroom, a twin room with pull-out extra bed plus a shower room.
Guests are spoilt for choice in Ashburton with a variety of interesting shops just a stroll from the cottage.
There are antique shops and lovely gift shops, plus lots of foodie choice with a fantastic deli round the corner, an award-winning fish deli a few doors down and an artisan bakery on the other side of the road.
There are many traditional friendly pubs close by and a wine bar.
Ashburton is also the home of an award-winning cookery school, offering one day courses, foodie gifts for friends or weekend food courses.
Nestled in a tranquil haven on the edge of Dartmoor and along the banks of the River Dart, Buckfast Abbey, the only English medieval monastery to have been restored and used again for its original purpose, is a short drive away and well worth a visit.
Situated between the stunning south Devon coast and the dramatic slopes of Dartmoor, there are plenty of activities farther afield.
Whether it’s relaxation or outdoor pursuits that you’re after, Ashburton is the perfect choice of destination and this gorgeous townhouse provides easy access to so much, right on the doorstep.
