This sweet little cottage is attached to a farmhouse on a traditional Devon farm. It is a wonderfully peaceful spot, with the 300-acre farm to wander, where you are likely to see wild duck on the ponds and plenty of other wildlife in this rural idyll. The farmer will even provide you with fresh veg to cook when it is available. The living room has plenty of character with big beams and a cosy wood-burning stove and leads to a dining area and well-equipped kitchen. Stairs wind up from the living room to the two bedrooms which share the bathroom. This is excellent walking country, with lanes and footpaths to wander and Castle Drogo in its dramatic wooded valley, and you can dry your coats and boots in the outhouse by the cottage. The open space of Dartmoor is within easy reach, as is the friendly little town of Chagford with its inns and interesting little shops. For the bright lights of the city head to Exeter, 17 miles away, or take your buckets and spades to the beach, about 20 miles away. This is a friendly little cottage with stunning countryside to explore.
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.
