The property

North Tawton 0.5 miles.

This attractive cottage is part of a converted mill and is situated within its own enclosed gardens, amongst similar properties on the outskirts of North Tawton near Okehampton.

This cosy cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the splendour of the Dartmoor Tors or the gentleness of Abbeyford Woods, which is fantastic for dog walks.

Inside the cottage is a contemporary open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a woodburner, as well as exposed oak beams.

The two spacious bedrooms share a bathroom and, for added flexibility, there is a ground floor cloakroom.

The living area opens onto a decked area, with steps leading down to an enclosed garden where dogs and children can play in safety on the lawn.

This lovely two-storey cottage overlooks open countryside and is a few minutes from both the Tarka Trail and Abbeyford Woods.

A short drive from the cottage is Okehampton where you can visit the castle and also venture into the Victorian shopping arcade for some retail therapy, together with visiting the many cafes and restaurants available.

The north and south Devon coastlines are only short drives from this countryside gem together with the cathedral city of Exeter, with its cobbled streets and architecture from medieval to modern day.

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

The charming country town of North Tawton quietly rests amidst lush green fields, high hedgerows and winding lanes, just eight miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches and rolling surf of the North Devon coast, this delightful town boasts picturesque thatched cottages and quaint pubs and restaurants. 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. There are few better spots from which to experience the joys of beautiful Devon.
