This lovely cottage converted from a hayloft above stables is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Water, just 400 yards from the pub in the Devon village of Manaton on the edge of Dartmoor. This is a relaxing country base for families or couples. Head from the parking area beyond the owners’ farmhouse down a gravelled path into a courtyard and step up to the front door to find yourself in a big tiled hall which is a useful space for storing your walking gear. From here, take the stairs up to the open plan living space, where you will want to gaze at the amazing views over fields to Black Hill. The hand-built kitchen with dining area features at one end, whilst at the other end, the leather sofas are comfortably positioned by a cosy wood-burning stove. The three bedrooms are comfortable, all being en suite. A traditional Devon courtyard outside is a lovely place to eat at the table, and beyond the owners’ garden, you have your own enclosed private garden with a picnic bench to enjoy. Nine acres of gardens with pond and fields welcome you to wander, or head off along a half-mile walk through woods to Lustleigh Cleave and the River Bovey. There is also stabling if you would like to bring your horses to ride. The Hayloft is a relaxing place to stay and immerse yourself in the freedom of peaceful Devon countryside and moorland.
Manaton is a picturesque, quiet, moorland village across from Lustleigh and near to the Dartmoor National Park. The village is very popular with walkers and cyclists as Manaton is very close to the National park. The village's local pub, The Kestor Inn, serves traditional home-cooked food and offers stunning scenery. This is a destination perfect for those wanting a rural retreat but close to larger towns. We have a great collection of Manaton self-catering cottages from which you can enjoy the area.
