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.
Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double with original ancient stairs (you don't need to use them), 1 x twin (2'6" beds, linkable to 5' double on request). Open plan living area with sitting area with fireplace and wood burning stove, fitted kitchen with granite worktops and dining area. Shower-room with shower, basin and WC.
