The property

1 mile from Lydford in a private rural spot beside the owner's house, is a cute little 'shepherdess hut' with long views over the surrounding fields towards Cornwall and the adjoining working farm.

Inside this quirky little hut is simply but comfortably furnished.

Well thought out, the light open-plan living space has two comfy vintage leather chairs in which to snuggle beside the wood burning stove, a rustic dining table and chairs and an ample kitchen area.

To one end, the sleeping area has a king-size bed.

Outside is your own enclosed garden, with furniture and gorgeous rural views.

A footpath leads one mile to the village, which has two good food pubs and a farm shop and there is access at various points along the footpath to the sparkling river where the hardy can swim.

Lydford's famous National Trust gorge and waterfall, and ruined medieval castle are nearby.

You can cycle or walk along the Granite Way, fish on the river Lyd or ride a horse across the moors from local stables.

Further afield the market town of Tavistock has plenty of shops, restaurants, an indoor pool and cinema.

Equidistant between the north and south coasts, the sea and beaches are about 25 miles away.

About the location


Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.
