About the property

Nestled within the curtilage of the owner's beautiful thatched long house is Trilbys, a carefully converted end of a barn, situated perfectly with abounding countryside stretching up and over towards the picturesque town of Chagford.

This very quiet and peaceful area, with nothing more than the odd tractor and postman passing by, is a wonderfully romantic retreat for two boasting a cosy interior and an attractive English garden to the rear.

Stroll through the stable door and straight into the homely set up of the lounge, complete with a wall-mounted TV, dining table and chairs and ample storage containing crockery and cutlery for your use.

The galley-style kitchen is nicely appointed with fitted units and granite worktops, overlooking the wonderful exterior.

Upstairs is a country-style double room with an en-suite cloakroom for your convenience, whilst the shower room rests on the ground floor.

Step out to the rear of the property and admire the magical garden boasting a wild assortment of flourishing greenery amidst floriferous shrubs cascading up the stone walls, with a pretty bistro set positioned elegantly on the wonderfully kept lawn, for you to sit out and enjoy refreshments on a pleasant afternoon.

A delightful pond rests in the centre bringing with it an abundance of wildlife.

Resting at the northern point of Dartmoor National Park, offering walking aplenty; you can explore its open moorlands and deep river valleys.

Spend some time in the local town of Chagford, though small in size offers a variety of things to do, with shops, pubs and an open-air swimming pool.

The city of Exeter is further afield, offering a vibrant assortment of landmarks and attractions.

This delightful bolthole is to be enjoyed the year-round.
