The property

Okehampton 7 miles.

This traditional stone cottage is next door to the owners’ farmhouse on a non-working farm in a rural setting close to Dartmoor National Park, 7 miles from Okehampton.

Set within a quiet setting surrounded by meadows grazed by the owners’ ponies, this spacious cottage provides a countryside getaway for a family or group of friends who will enjoy horse riding, walking or cycling in this picturesque area in the heart of Devon.

With two reception rooms and a large kitchen with breakfast area, there is plenty of space for the family to spend time together and in the sitting room there is a large sofa bed, ideal for an extra couple who can utilise the ground floor cloakroom plus share the upstairs bathroom.

There is a double bedroom plus two single bedrooms, all sharing the family bathroom which has both a bath and a separate walk-in shower.

The large private garden at the side of the cottage is a perfect spot where dogs and children can play safely, and adults can enjoy the quiet peace of a rural garden whilst relaxing with a refreshing drink or dining alfresco.

The local village of Bridestowe has a small shop, and there are numerous friendly pubs in this area whilst the market town of Okehampton has shops, a cinema, museum and heritage railway centre with train journeys to Meldon reservoir.

There is now a cycle route from Okehampton to Lydford following the disused length of railway and offering amazing views and pub stops en-route.

Dartmoor National Park provides fun-filled activities such as pony riding, tor bagging, letterboxing and exploring miles of rugged open space.

A fabulous, well-presented cottage in the heart of Devon where a warm welcome awaits.

The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life (where Tourist Information can be found) and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory running trains along a scenic route to Meldon the highest station in southern England. The town also has spectacular views across Dartmoor, access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground.
