  • “The cottage is lovely and the garden would be too but it is overgrown and unusable, not as represented on the website.”

    The location is superb, very peaceful and quiet. A gardener is desperately needed, otherwise very good.

The property

This pretty semi-detached thatched cottage is situated on the Dartmoor Way lane in the pretty little peaceful village of North Bovey.

Dating from the 17th century and Grade II listed, it is a charming and atmospheric place for a family or friends to enjoy the splendid surroundings.

On the ground floor the sitting room is wonderfully traditional with wood burning stove in a massive inglenook fireplace, ancient beams and window seat with valley views, plus a kitchen area.

Step down through a cute little doorway to your dining room.

Generations over history have wended their way up the steep winding stairs to the two cosy bedrooms, now with modern family bathroom.

Outside, you have a long private garden with trees, furniture and lovely rural views, which you access across the neighbour's driveway.

To explore further, head down the lane to stepping stones across the River Bovey, a pretty little tree-shaded spot to dream and watch fish and dragonflies.

Beyond this are lovely walks in all directions, in the foothills of open Dartmoor.

For friendly pubs for eating out, Moretonhampstead and Manaton are just the ticket.

Little Gate Cottage is a smashing base for enjoying peace and tranquillity in a wonderfully unspoiled village location.

Ring of Bells Inn in walking distance.
