This detached cottage converted from an old milking parlour is situated amongst farmland in Sampford Courtenay.
With a charming garden, this is a calming cottage for a relaxing break to recharge your batteries.
Head on in to the open plan living area, all big, bright and beautiful, where you can watch TV, sit back and gaze over the garden or open the doors to the sunny patio on a fine day.
You have a handy bedroom on the ground floor, or take the stairs from the sitting area up to the gallery, a quiet area to read or play board games, then through to a twin bedroom which is made private from the sitting area below with a curtain.
All around the cottage are lovely gardens, well tended and a special place to wander and spot a wide range of plants and wildlife around the ponds and brook.
Stroll beyond to the good village inn, just ¼ mile along a lane, to enjoy an excellent menu, or the bustling town of Okehampton offers a choice of eateries as well as a cinema and leisure centre.
You can coarse fish nearby or head to Dartmoor for excellent walking or off road cycling.
With its central location, The Old Parlour is a brilliant place for soaking up the peace or touring the countryside and coast of Devon.
Two bedrooms: 1 x downstairs super king double. Shower room with shower, WC, basin. 1 x upstairs gallery twin with 3' beds. Gallery seating area. Downstairs open plan living space with seating area, dining area and kitchen and doors to patio.
About the location
Okehampton 2.5 miles.
Midway between Sampford Courtenay, a sleepy but picturesque Devon village, and Okehampton, a thriving community known as ‘the gateway to the moor’. The whole area is a country lover’s dream. The high tors of northern Dartmoor dominate the scenery and provide a splendid backdrop to Okehampton nestling in a valley where tumbling moorland rivers join before heading to the sea. For miles around, the area is famous for its country pubs that between them provide welcome rest after a day exploring the paths, cycle ways and stunning countryside. On a clear day the view from the top of High Willhays (the highest point south of the Pennines) will take your breath away. Country pursuits and crafts are a way of life and a trip to the Dartmoor Visitor Centre and country museum in Okehampton are musts. Look also at the pretty moorland villages of Chagford, Belstone and Sticklepath to savour a way of life that’s becoming increasingly rare.
