Delightful detached property situated in a pretty North Devonshire village, just a few miles north of the town of Torrington, with its range of facilities.
This delightful detached lodge stands in private grounds in the village of Weare Giffard, less than 3 miles northwest of Great Torrington - a market town in North Devon. It’s a perfect escape for couples seeking beautiful walking country and a comfortable country haven for a peaceful and romantic break. You’ll ease into holiday mode when you first gaze across to the village from the open-plan upstairs living area; relaxation is complete when you awake to birdsong and a view of lush fields and hedges.
Entering from the gravelled parking area, there’s a useful hallway for coats and boots which accesses the shower room/WC. Climb the cottage-style stairs to a pitch-roofed kitchen/dining/living room that’s all about space and light. Large loft windows afford varied views, and your comfortable double bedroom, also upstairs, has huge full-height windows nearly filling one end of the room with views towards village and river. Colours are calm and fabrics have classic British patterns. The overall style is simple, modern and understated. Outside, your enclosed and private patio has a seating area ideal for leisurely breakfasts, sunny al fresco lunches, and peaceful sundowners. Beyond, there’s bike storage space, and you’re welcome to explore the owner’s paddocks beside the river – perhaps you’ll see an otter!
From your door, footpaths and cycleways link to the famous Tarka Trail which follows the River Torridge and passes just 250m from the village street. Further afield explore the North Devon Coast and South West Coast Path, which provides excellent beaches and beautiful clifftop views from Clovelly to Appledore: all within 20 miles. Weare Giffard’s pub is renowned for local cider and home-cooked meals, and Great Torrington has varied shops and dining options.
