On the ground floor are a sitting room with open fire, kitchen with dining area and study. Outside are eighteen acres of beautiful grounds with lawns and woodland. Three miles from Chagford and close to Dartmoor, Sandsgate is a brilliant house for big families or groups of friends to experience Dartmoor and Devon.
In a splendid location down a private drive on a hillside three miles from the Dartmoor town of Chagford is this wonderful detached house. With a terrace stretching the entire width of the house for views across the Teign Valley to Castle Drogo, this is a splendid house for big families or groups of friends to enjoy. The big sitting room has French windows to that terrace, as well as comfy sofas and an open fire. You will enjoy spending time in the kitchen, which is another magnificent room where you can dine around the huge table, chill out in the seating area over the Dartmoor views, watch TV, or rustle up a meal whilst the children play with the toys provided. A study also opens to those time-wasting vistas. Take the stairs up to a games room on the first floor, where you can enjoy a game of pool or table football or watch TV. All the bedrooms are smart, with those views and TV, but the pièce de résistance is the big master bedroom, complete with its own sunroom which leads you through to a balcony where you can gaze over Castle Drogo with an evening drink. There are three other bedrooms, plus a shower room and a beautiful bathroom on this floor, then follow more stairs up two large bedrooms under the eaves, sharing a bathroom. Outside there are 18 vast acres of lovely peaceful natural grounds, with lawns, ancient woodland and even a prehistoric stone circle. You may not want to leave Sandsgate, but if you do there is National Trust Castle Drogo to explore, the friendly shops and pubs of nearby Chagford, open moorland which invites you to walk and picnic, golf and children’s attractions, the city lights of Exeter within a twenty-minute drive and great beaches just forty minutes away. Sandsgate is a very special, private house for big groups to totally relax.

Set in the northern part of Dartmoor National Park, Chagford is a picturesque town that is surprisingly well provisioned, boasting four pubs and a wide range of shops. The River Teign runs through the town and you can go on a riverside walk to find the Fingle Bridge, a local beauty spot. With the largest open-air swimming pool in the south-west and public tennis courts, you can also enjoy your leisure time. Chagford holds music, literary and film festivals annually as well as regular exhibitions of paintings and poetry.
However, most people staying here are coming to wonder at the beauty of Dartmoor. With over 200 square miles of beautiful moorland to discover it is a rambler's dream dotted with historic sites such as Grimspound and dramatic scenery including the famous tors.
