Ideally situated the heart of Devon this delightful semi-detached cottage has been sympathetically renovated and offers an array of creature comforts alongside original features.
This beautiful, Grade II listed, 1650s thatched cottage in the picturesque village of Northlew provides the ideal base for exploring the rural delights and varying landscapes that Devon and Cornwall have to offer. You’re close to the rugged moorland of Dartmoor, but also within easy reach of the beautiful coastline and sandy beaches of North Cornwall. The tranquillity of the surrounding countryside and the historic, picture-postcard village will make you feel like you’re a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
This property is a traditional, semi-detached cottage that has been sympathetically renovated and restored to ensure contemporary décor and traditional features blend seamlessly together. Light, neutral colours have been used throughout, creating a sense of space and ensuring the one-off pieces of period furniture stand out. The lounge is comfortable and cosy with a wood-effect electric fire. From here, step into the delightful, well-equipped kitchen/diner which has been lovingly designed to make the most of the space. The ground floor bathroom is also beautiful and spacious. Up the steep cottage stairs, you will find two charming bedrooms, one with en-suite. Although there is no garden, there is a children’s play area within a few hundred metres.
To the east, is the National Trust’s stunning Lydford Gorge (13.5 miles) which offers stunning, scenic walks and a 30-foot waterfall and Castle Drogo (23 miles) which is a unique, 1920s, art deco castle with delightful gardens and grounds to wander around. If it’s the beach you want, head to the seaside town of Bude (22.5 miles) with its two beaches, boating canal and lovely clifftop walks. RHS Rosemoor, 18 miles north, is a wonderful garden with something to suit all ages.
