In the centre of the popular Dartmoor village of Lydford, this welcoming little cottage has been beautifully converted from a Devon stone barn.
It’s a super place for walkers, cyclists or anyone seeking peace and freedom, with a pub serving excellent food just 200 yards away, a lovely way to end a day exploring the stunning surrounding moorland.
The cottage is a smart gem for two, with the open-plan living/dining/kitchen laid out to take advantage of the space, oak floors and lofty beamed ceiling which soars to the apex, and a cosy wood burning stove for a romantic atmosphere on cooler evenings.
The comfortable double bedroom with its en suite shower-room is downstairs.
A little seating area outside is a lovely place to enjoy sunny evening drinks and a barbecue.
There is lots to explore around Lydford village, from the National Trust gorge with dramatic White Lady waterfall, a ruined medieval castle, tor-top church at Brentor, Cycle Route 27, riding stables and trout fishing in the River Lyd.
Roadford Lake, nine miles away, is a fine place for walking and water sports and the old market town of Tavistock is a fascinating place to wander.
Beaches on the north and south coast can be reached in about 25 miles.
Lot Cottage is a great place for couples to go adventuring or relax.
1 x king size double bedroom with en suite shower-room with shower, WC, basin. Upstairs open-plan living/dining/kitchen with wood burning stove.
