The property

Equidistant between the pretty villages of Throwleigh and Gidleigh is The Bakehouse, a beautifully renovated, late medieval cottage sheltered by oak trees.

Inside is smart with slate floors downstairs and beautiful oak floors upstairs.

The living area is small but perfectly formed, and well thought out to provide you with everything you'll need, as well as a host of features, including granite worktops, a huge fireplace with wood burning stove and original ancient stone stairs.

On the first floor are two bedrooms, a roomy king-size double with handsome roof timbers and a twin (2'6" beds, linkable to 5' double).

Sunny and south facing, The Bakehouse looks out over its own neat, walled garden where you can sit in the sun and listen to bees, and birdsong.

The cottage is part of the historic group of farm buildings around the ancient farmhouse.

The owners run the farm, where cattle, sheep and ponies are grazed.

Nearby Chagford offers a choice of interesting shops and inns, a seasonal outdoor pool and tennis courts, and the cathedral city of Exeter is just 17 miles away.

Sandy beaches are a 20 mile drive away.

The Bakehouse is a lovely retreat with wonderful walking directly on to the moors from your doorstep; abundant wildlife and moorland archaeology.

    “The Bakehouse is a beautiful cottage to stay in.”

    Renovated to a high standard. It is worth staying in for the fireplace alone. The cottage is set right on the edge of Dartmoor but towns are within easy driving distance.There is something for everyone be it walking, sightseeing or just staying put and enjoying the peace and quiet The Bakehouse provides. Thoroughly recommended.
