This welcoming Devon house is situated on the edge of the Dartmoor village of South Zeal, peacefully above the lane that leads down to the pubs and shop in the heart of the village. Set over three floors, it is a fine roomy holiday home for families or groups of friends, with its flagstone and wood floors and traditional beams. You have the main part (the charming owner lives discreetly in a wing with separate access). The elegant hall leads you to the sitting room with its wood-burning stove in a huge inglenook and TV with Sky or piano for entertainment. The large light kitchen with dining area is an excellent place for everyone to gather around the big table, which also doubles up for games of table tennis, and on sunny days the group can spread out through French windows for drinks on the terrace. The snug with wood burning stove and TV is a cosy room which also has French windows to the garden. Curve up the stairs from the hall and you will find five bedrooms, one en suite, and two more bath or shower rooms. On the top floor is the perfect family entertainment space in the shape of a vast cinema room with TV, mini snooker, table football, rowing machine and tiny little door into a playroom for little people, plus another double bedroom. We defy anyone to be bored in this amazing house! The outside is pretty special too, with a seasonal outdoor unheated swimming pool and three acres of gardens to explore with sun terrace with barbecue, as well as a field and orchard for running and playing ball games. If you feel like seeking entertainment beyond the house, head out to the four friendly inns within a mile, or put on your boots and explore the wilds of Dartmoor, or maybe head to town or city amenities in Exeter or Okehampton. Townend is an excellent base for exploring Devon.
