The property

This lovely whitewashed, semi-detached farmhouse is situated on a non-working farm in a rural setting of Northlew on the edge of Dartmoor.

It is attached to the owners’ home, within a tranquil setting with superb farmland and rural views.

This traditional cottage provides a countryside getaway for a family or group of friends.

Alpacas are kept by the owners.

With two reception rooms and a large kitchen with a breakfast area, there is plenty of space for the family to watch TV together or dine comfortably in the separate dining room, before adjourning to the sitting room.

There is a master bedroom with en-suite basin and WC, two twin bedrooms, one of which is in the eaves of the farmhouse and only suitable for small children, and a single bedroom with a family bathroom.

You can sit in the enclosed garden where children can play safely, and adults can enjoy the quiet peace of a rural garden, whilst relaxing with a refreshing drink or dining alfresco.

The local village of Northlew has a charming square where you will find a pub and a community shop whilst Dartmoor National Park provides fun-filled activities such as pony riding, tor bagging, letterboxing and exploring miles of rugged open space.

Why not venture on one of the variety of walks along the pretty Devon lanes?

The north and South Devon coastlines are only short drives from this comfortable farmhouse and the cathedral city of Exeter offers plenty of retail therapy opportunities plus bars, restaurants and cafés.

A fabulous, well-presented cottage in the heart of Devon where a warm welcome awaits.

About the location


Hatherleigh 5 miles; Dartmoor National Park 12 miles;

Northlew is a Devon village on the edge of Dartmoor. It has an attractive main square surrounded by traditional buildings, some of them thatched; just off the square are a pub, useful community shop and Post Office. The village is 5 miles west of the ancient town of Hatherleigh, consisting of cob and thatch cottages situated in the heart of rural Devon. Hatherleigh lies in the Torridge Valley just seven miles from the edge of the Dartmoor National Park, and is a wonderful central location for the coast to coast long distance trail, which includes the popular Tarka Trail. The town itself offers a varied selection of interesting craft shops, country inns and cafes. Within driving distance are Okehampton Castle, the beautiful RHS Rosemoor Gardens at Torrington, and even to the dramatic surfing beaches around Bude. Hatherleigh’s central position makes it an ideal location from which to explore this area of Devon.
