The property

This pretty thatched cottage is situated on the edge of North Tawton village, down a quiet narrow country lane in a terrace of similar properties within walking distance of the village shops and pubs.

An ideal base for exploring Dartmoor and its historic villages, this beautifully-presented cottage is ideal for couples and small families.

The sitting room invites guests to get warm and cosy in front of the woodburner, which also heats the small dining room and kitchen beyond.

The exposed beams and stone fireplace give a sense of the history of this lovely cottage.

Upstairs, the king-size bedroom feels romantic and spacious and, together with the single bedroom, the cottage could sleep a small family of three.

For added flexibility, there is also an airbed that can be put up in the double bedroom.

The small garden at the rear of this cottage has a decked area with seating under the trees, a peaceful sheltered place to have a family barbecue in the evening.

As well as walks from the doorstep along flower-clad lanes, there is the splendour of the Dartmoor Tors or the gentleness of Abbeyford Woods to explore on foot or by bicycle; both are also fantastic for dog walking.

Nearby, Okehampton offers lots of history including a castle and a Victorian shopping arcade, whilst the north and south Devon coastlines are only a short drive.

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

The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling, with many pretty little villages dotted throughout the area, and several excellent coarse fishing lakes and rivers, quality golf courses, and a number of National Trust properties within easy reach.
