The property

A picture-perfect thatch cottage set amidst rural countryside, close to the village of Lifton on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Damson cottage is one of a small cluster of cottages at the end of a country track, in the tiny hamlet of Higher Rexton near the village of Broadwoodwidger.

Far reaching views from the garden stretch as far as Bodmin Moor and the cottage is conveniently placed just a few minutes’ drive from the A30, ideally placed for exploring Devon and Cornwall.

The cottage whilst having been tastefully modernised, is overflowing with character and charm, evident as you step over the threshold into the cosy sitting room.

A large inglenook fireplace takes centre stage, with original timber beams and whitewashed stone walls creating a wonderful cosy room to relax.

A bespoke and striking country kitchen with a central island and Rangemaster cooker with induction hob, will appeal greatly to keen cooks, and leads into a southwest facing modern and spacious conservatory, a more recent addition to the property.

Overlooking the pretty planted garden, the sunny spot acts as a separate dining area for the family to gather with additional comfortable seating to unwind with a good book or morning coffee.

There is a ground floor bathroom and a stone spiral staircase that leads to the first floor landing and the three attractive bedrooms.

An unusually narrow and low doorway leads into a spacious master bedrooms with views across the countryside.

There is a further double with a useful en-suite shower (no WC) a cute single room and first floor cloak room.

Outside a beautiful cottage garden is enclosed and enjoys a private aspect with wonderful views towards Bodmin Moor.

There is also a heated summerhouse equipped with pool table and useful for storing bikes and walking gear.

This is the ideal country escape with the nearest pub and shops found in the village of Lifton 4 miles away.

Just 2 miles away is Roadford Lake, a fantastic day out for the family.

Explore Roadford by bike, on foot or by boat and there are acres of space for children to play freely and a whole host of water based activities to try.

Enjoy the nature trails, the whole area is dog friendly and the café serves locally produced mouthwatering snacks and light lunches.

Bring your walking boots as this is perfect walking country with both Dartmoor and Bodmin within easy reach and for days on the beach head west to the North Cornish coast and the beaches of Bude, Widemouth Bay and Summerleaze beach, all reachable in a little over 40 minutes’ drive.
