A lovely terraced 17th century cottage on a quiet road near the church, in the beautiful village of Morchard Bishop in the county of Devon.
With unspoilt countryside and magnificent views, this delightful cottage is the perfect base to explore this wonderful part of the country, being midway between the north and south coasts, and proudly sitting between the two great moors of Exmoor and Dartmoor.
This traditional and spacious cottage oozes character with its beamed ceilings, original fireplace with bread oven still set in its wall, multi-fuel stove and a spiral staircase.
Upon entering the cottage through the porch you come into the cosy sitting room.
The rustic tiled dining area has seating for 6 with an oak dining table and chairs.
Adjoining this is the warm, carpeted sitting area.
With a multi-fuel stove in the inglenook fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating, this is the perfect place to relax and put your feet up.
Off the dining area is a good size, light and modern, fitted kitchen with plenty of storage space.
A sizeable utility is ideal for those muddy boots and dog basket, and a downstairs toilet means there is never a queue.
The kitchen leads onto a private walled back garden with a small lawn and a variety of flowering plants and shrubs.
There is plenty of space and furniture for alfresco dining.
The spectacular views over the Devon countryside make this an ideal place to unwind after a busy day touring the delights of the county.
The quirky staircase leads off the sitting room to the first floor where there are three sizeable bedrooms, with exposed beams and sloping ceilings befitting of a cottage of this era.
The bathroom is well equipped with a bath, basin and WC as well as a separate shower.
Only a short stroll from this beautiful cottage is the local village pub, which dates back to the 16th century, renowned for its good home cooked food and well-kept local ales and ciders.

A children’s playground with swings, slides, climbing frames and so on is in the village, as well as a playing field, tennis and basketball courts.
From the cottage, there are plenty of walking opportunities along pretty Devon lanes and the Two Moors Way, with the Dartmoor National Park providing fun-filled activities, such as pony riding and exploring miles of rugged, open space.
