    “An excellent stay at 1 Southbrook Cottage, very comfortable, and a very relaxing experience”

The property

Nestled in a small hamlet, down a quiet country lane, yet with close proximity to the charming town of Bovey Tracey, is this pretty chocolate-box cottage bursting with character and effortless style.

This Grade II listed, thatched property rests at the end of a row of three, with peace and tranquillity engulfing a leafy green surround.

The interior comprises a lovely, welcoming set-up with a beautiful range of furnishings and antique pieces pleasantly dotted around.

A large woodburner, resting in the inglenook fireplace of the living room, invites you to sit and relax in the organic atmosphere.

Step under the archway and into the dining room enjoying heaps of character, a charming dining table, elegant china cabinets and a door out to the patio, which you can open up and let a gentle breeze flow in from outside.

A well-appointed kitchen completes this Devon cottage in a stylish fashion, with a Butler sink, a washer/dryer and an electric cooker.

Climb up the winding staircase to a set of splendidly presented bedrooms, a French-style king-size double bed with a lovely dressing table and a charming rocking chair, rests across from a cosy double room.

The ground floor bathroom is elegantly presented in a lemon yellow shade, accompanied by an accommodating cloakroom on the first floor.

The little sun terrace to the rear exterior is a lovely spot to sit out and enjoy the pleasurable surroundings with a chilled beverage to hand or a light bite to eat, up beyond the suntrap terrace there a gently sloping grassy area surrounded by tall leafy trees for shade and privacy.

For your convenience, the off-road parking spaces are provided to the side of the cottage.

Avid historians will enjoy exploring the local town of Bovey Tracey, home to the beautiful River Bovey, an array of shops and cafes along with the Heritage Centre, not to mention Dartmoor National Park close by.

Endless walking trails are provided, passing by some of the most fantastic scenery you can imagine.

This wonderful property is a joyous retreat ideal for two couples or friends to share together in an idyllic part of Devon.

About the location


Newton Abbott 6.5 miles; Teigmouth 10 miles; Exeter 15 miles

Nestled in the valley of the River Bovey is this stunning little town known as "The Gateway to the Moor". Bovey Tracey got its name from the meandering river that flows through it, with 'Tracey' representing the family that were the lords of the manor after the Norman Conquest. It has a great history with heavy involvement in the English Civil War which resulted in the name of the town's pub "The Cromwell Arms" which serves real ale and good food. The history of the town can be discovered in the Heritage Centre, with the Dartmoor National Park Authority also nearby. Bovey Tracey offers a selection of shops and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisy Distillery which offers guided tours. The town comes just outside of the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery. The market town of Newton Abbott sits nearby, offering a fantastic day out with charming buildings and a good range of amenities. The beautiful city of Exeter is also within driving distance, and if a day at the seaside is what you're after then take a trip to Teignmouth.
