The property

Chulmleigh 1 mile.

This character, luxurious cottage is one of a row of only three traditional stone cottages in the hamlet of Chawleigh Week.

It is set amongst glorious countryside enjoying far reaching rural views across the Taw Valley.

The hamlet of Chawleigh Week is 1 mile from the village of Chulmleigh in an area of Mid Devon.

Set in lovely countryside with easy access to the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and the Devon coast, this cottage makes a great base for family holidays or a get together with a few friends.

The cottage is finished to a very high standard throughout.

On entry you arrive in the well-equipped kitchen which has everything needed to prepare some home-cooked meals.

The spacious living room has an elegant feel with some lovely homely touches.

There are plenty of comfy sofas in front of a welcoming woodburner; a great place to sit and relax after a full day out and about.

This then leads into the fantastic conservatory with plenty of seating and great views of the large pretty garden.

Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms with two bathroom facilities, giving the flexibility of having one per bedroom.

To the outside is a large enclosed lawned orchard garden to the front.

The enclosed rear garden has a good-sized patio and furniture, making it a great place for some alfresco dining or even just to relax enjoying the views and sounds of the local countryside.

The cottage has plenty of walks and cycle routes from the door.

The village of Chulmleigh has fantastic countryside views which include the peaks of Dartmoor, while closer by, the thatched cottages and the church with its beautiful tower ensure a peaceful and relaxed setting.

Chulmleigh is home to the River Taw, which is ideal for keen fishermen, with fishing for salmon and sea trout, as well as coarse fishing at the Fox and Hounds hotel where you can also have lessons.

You are also close to Eggesford station which has lines towards Exeter and Barnstaple.

The North Devon coast is only a short drive from this cottage and long sandy beaches, bracing walks, surfing waves and safe swimming are all to be found there.

The RHS gardens at Rosemoor is a thirty minute drive, great for garden lovers with activities for children during the school holidays.

About the location

CHULMLEIGH

Winkleigh 6.3 miles; Barnstaple 18 miles; Exeter 25 miles.

Chulmleigh is a delightful village in the heart of Devon, with a real, old-fashioned community spirit. With its narrow cobbled lanes, rows of thatched cottages, courtyards and welcoming inns it is a pleasure to wander here in this relatively unspoilt part of Devon. It is a year-round destination, with summer gardens and winter walks to enjoy. The 180-mile Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest, which is on the banks of the River Taw, and follows a pretty route through woodland, and offers some spectacular moorland views. Chulmleigh is particularly good for birdwatchers, who can spot kingfishers, cormorants, goosanders and dippers along the quiet riverbanks. Fishing is a popular sport in the area, with salmon and sea trout in the rivers and coarse fishing on Catham Lakes and Huntacott Water. Chulmleigh is midway between the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and within easy reach of the rugged north Devon coast.
