  • Mr Coleman

    “The cottage met our expectations in that we got what we paid for in the area/village that we chose.”

    Quaint and comfortable and accessible to both Devon coastal areas, a little dated

The property

Westgate Cottage is an enchanting, traditional Grade II listed cottage in a wonderfully peaceful location in the mid-Devon village of Lapford. This 300-year-old semi-detached cottage is the perfect spot for couples, friends or families to come and enjoy a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle.

Step into the cottage and into the warming sitting room with traditional wooden beams, a corner sofa, TV and a stunning inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, what better way to curl up and watch a favourite film?

The living area is open plan, with the kitchen and dining areas boasting charming wooden units, and a useful utility room.

The ground floor also offers a stylish, spacious family bathroom with a marble-effect vanity unit.

The first floor boasts two pleasant bedrooms one of which has an adjacent lavatory with hand wash basin.

Both bedrooms are presented with crisp bed linen, hand and bath towels, and have plenty of clothing storage.

The master bedroom is a homely, cosy room with a fabulous four-poster bed and some charming character features such as an original oak beamed fireplace, today used for decorative purposes.
