The property

Tucked away within the rural heart of Devon and boasting breathtaking countryside views is this 14th Century dwelling, Wigham Cottage.

This traditional, thatched cottage offers a wonderful base for a family or friends seeking to explore the Devonshire coast and countryside.

Ideal for a group of four, it comes with two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of two super-king-size bedrooms, one with an en-suite, complete with a freestanding bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC and the other with it's own en-suite walk in shower room.

Look forward to spending the chilly winter evenings within the inviting sitting room, where you will be greeted by the original exposed beams and the roaring woodburning fire, ensuring that the space is filled with warmth and charm.

The chef of the group will be delighted with the amply equipped kitchen, which features an AGA for colder months, where you will be able to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal before gathering the loved ones around the dining table to enjoy a sociable evening.

The property comes equipped for rainy days as the superb selection of games is certain to keep you busy, whilst during the warmer months, you can look forward to spending time within the enclosed garden or dipping into the shared outdoor swimming pool.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, venture into the centre of Morchard Bishop or Lapford, where you will be delighted with the traditional country pubs serving food.

For days out, those feeling active will find superb walks from the doorstep of the cottage, with Morchard Bishop being an integral part of the Two Moors Way, which is a route connecting Dartmoor and Exmoor, together with cycling routes through the rolling countryside.

For those summer months, venture further afield to the coast, where you and your loved ones can spend a day soaking up the sun or tackling the famous Devonshire waves.
