    The house is perfectly placed for many picturesque walks along the river and is walking distance from Dartmoor with amazing views as well as being close enough to the sea for an easy drive to the coast. Our host Tony was very welcoming to us and to the dogs . He even made us a pie as a welcome present and was on hand to answer any queries we had. He always replied very quickly to our texts. The house itself is in a lovely spot, around a mile from the village of South Brent which has a Co Op and several places to find takeaway food, fish & chips and a newly opened grill. Ivybridge is also a 15 minute drive away if you need more options. The views from the house are lovely and it has its own mature gardens with some ancient trees and pretty shrubs. The house itself is quite old and probably could do with updating inside and out. Inevitably due to its age it does feel tired. Having said that, the beds are very comfortable and the house is very spacious with four large bedrooms, three of which have en suite bathrooms. The kitchen is well stocked and includes a dishwasher and large fridge so it has everything it needs for a comfortable stay.
