The property

Nethercott House is a huge Victorian house situated in countryside near Iddesleigh.

It is used in term time by Michael Morpurgo’s charity Farms for City Children, but at other times is a magical place for great gatherings of extended family or sociable groups of friends.

The accommodation is simple and basic but hugely spacious and rambles over three floors and it is a wonderful place to completely relax and spend special time together.

Head into the large hall and from here you can turn to the sitting room with its cosy wood burning stove.

The big dining room is reminiscent of Harry Potter with its array of tables and chairs and bay windows.

The kitchen and accompanying pantry are well equipped for cooking up a storm for a big crowd.

The children will have a ball playing table tennis and table football in the games room, all great fun and refreshing in this house with no TVs.

Head on upstairs to eight bedrooms on the first floor, five fabulous dormitory-style bunk rooms at the front and three twins at the back.

On the top floor is a light bright work room leading to a double bedroom.

Outside is a glorious amount of space with lawns, two ponds, Dartmoor views and access to two rivers and the Tarka Trail.

At the back are traditional farm buildings and a veg garden.

You probably won't want to go far from this rural escape, but if you do there’s a great pub in the village and lots to explore in the little farming town of Hatherleigh.

There are lots of footpaths in the area, including the wonderful Tarka Trail to walk or cycle, or you can fish in the River Torridge.

The coast at Bude is a great day trip.

Nethercott House is a unique destination for enjoying the company of friends and family in an idyllic setting.
