The property

Enjoying a central position within the picturesque Devonshire village of Winkleigh, is the 400-year-old chocolate box, Traphouse Cottage.

This characterful accommodation is ideally placed for a family seeking to explore the rolling countryside settings of Dartmoor and Exmoor with a well-equipped base to come back to each evening.

The interior enjoys charming period features with uneven walls and floors complementing the exposed beams which truly highlight the character of the property.

Step into the sitting room, where the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the space with tranquilly during those chilly winter months as you curl up on the sofa and tune into the TV with a DVD player.

Continuing to impress is the contemporary kitchen which houses everything you could possibly need to cater for yourselves and rustle up delicious home-cooked meals that can be enjoyed within the dining area which rests in front of the window, perfect for watching the world go by as you tuck in.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find two elegantly-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each boasting a refreshing colour palette and ample storage and space to house your personal belongings.

To the outside, there is a fully enclosed rear garden, where you and your loved ones can look forward to enjoying a spot of alfresco dining whilst your canine companions stretch their legs on the patio area.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic base, a short walk will bring you to a choice of two pubs with one serving food, a butchers, a Post Office and a shop for picking up the essentials.

For those feeling active, you will look forward to exploring the magnitude of walks upon the surrounding countryside, as well as the famous Tarka Trail.

Further afield are the picturesque beaches of North Devon, where you will find outstanding surfing opportunities and walks along the dramatic coastline.

Traphouse Cottage is a wonderful base for a refreshing holiday with your loved ones.
