The Property

Winkleigh 2 miles. Once part of a larger farmstead, this charming stone-built wing is now a holiday home with rustic character and charm and its own, private fenced garden with views towards Dartmoor. Converted to a high standard with a modern, fully fitted kitchen, the stylish and comfortable interior has tastefully retained much of the building's original character. The cottage is surrounded by the owners’ land with an intricate network of country walks extending in all directions, and with the rolling tors of Dartmoor just 10 miles away, the whole area is a walker’s and nature lover’s paradise. Winkleigh, 2 miles away, is a lovely rural village with two pubs, a cafe, shop and Post Office plus its own cider maker. Okehampton, 12 miles away, has a useful range of shops, banks and supermarkets. The surfing beaches of North West Devon and North Cornwall are 40 minutes by car, while the fabulous RHS garden at Rosemoor is 15 minutes’ drive.
