Property code: HEMBS

This delightful semi-detached property forms part of a non-working farm set amongst 16 acres of private pastureland and woods and provides a perfect base for couples wishing to relax and unwind.

If it’s a rustic, rural retreat you’re after, this gorgeous stone cottage is the one for you. The semi-detached, single-storey property is part of a non-working farm, with 16 acres of private pastureland, woods to enjoy and a private wood-fired hot tub waiting for you to soak your troubles away on a private patio... you can’t get much more rural than that! Sleeping two, it’s an ideal home-from-home for couples wishing to relax and unwind, but also for explorers keen on witnessing Devon’s beauty.

Inside, you’ll find a range of traditional features including a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and French doors that add a touch of classic style. The studio-style living space consists of a cosy lounge, kitchen/dining area and bedroom with double bed, all of which combine to make you feel very welcome after a day’s exploring! Step through the French doors and outside, you’ll find an enclosed garden area, patio with garden furniture, BBQ, and steps leading to a delightful lawn. The eco wood-fired hot tub with sweeping countryside views is the star of the property, while woodland walks and a paddock are perfect for exercising your dog. It’s on a complex of properties, meaning you can use a shared utility room and storage space.

Walkers and cyclists will love a stay here, with the Tarka Trail foot and cycle path, joinable at Meeth (5.5 miles away), and Dartmoor National Park (14 miles) both within proximity. Although you’ll be in the heart of Devon, 13 miles away from the market town of Holsworthy, you won’t be far from the coast either. Head 20 miles west to Bude in Cornwall or north to Hartland, where you can enjoy sublime shoreline or join the South West Coast Path for a ramble.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
