The property

Southmead Cottage is a delightful end-terrace cottage, hidden away in the stunning hamlet of Lettaford.

This medieval hamlet is made up of just five properties which sit in the heart of Dartmoor, just over three miles from Chagford and with lovely moorland walks from the doorstep.

Upon entering the charming cottage, you step through a small porch, ideal for kicking off your boots before entering the contemporary styled cottage.

In here you will be welcomed to a brightly-decorated kitchen with a formal dining area.

From the kitchen, follow the five steps up to a tranquil, sunny sitting room with an electric flame-effect fire.

Large, luxurious double bedroom, with a king-size bed, perfect for relaxing.

Next to the bedroom an elegant marble-effect family bathroom.

Stairs from the kitchen up to two bedrooms, with rural views; a spacious king-size double with an en-suite shower plus a room with bunk beds.

Outside, you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee in the enclosed garden, complete with furniture and charming rural views.

The cottage is alongside a bridle path which takes you directly onto the High Moor, where you will discover miles of wild, open moorlands, rich with history and wildlife.

If you're visiting with younger guests, then a trip to the Miniature Pony Centre just a mile away is must.

For provisions, restaurants and excellent shopping, the cottage sits close to the tiny towns of Moretonhampstead or Chagford both of which can be located within a 10-minute drive from the cottage.

Southmead Cottage is a truly elegant cottage, an equally great base for outdoor and adventure lovers, or those seeking rural peace within the Dartmoor National Park.
