This single storey cottage which is one of two properties sits in the grounds of the owner’s home and has been converted and styled in a fresh and contemporary way with superb countryside views.
This fresh and contemporary single-storey cottage is one of two properties set in the owner’s grounds, 2 miles west of the pretty village of Winkleigh. Set amidst exceptional country views, the property is a perfect base for exploring two of Britain’s best National Parks, Exmoor and Dartmoor. Visit the Winkleigh Cider Company, walk with alpacas at Woolley Animals in Riddlecombe (7 miles) and explore haunted Okehampton Castle (12 miles), built by the Normans and the biggest in Devon. The Museum of Dartmoor Life in Okehampton is also well worth a visit.
The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is bright and welcoming, with everything you’ll need close at hand. There’s a lovely retro mid-century feel to the interior, echoed through the fabrics, lighting and furniture. The king-size bedroom is elegant and comfortable with a lovely en-suite. Heading outside, the garden is an exquisite space for unwinding and admiring the verdant beauty of Devon. Enjoy al fresco nights with friends around the BBQ, while you plan your day ahead.
Whatever the weather, there’s so much to do in this delightful part of England. Just inside Dartmoor is the beautiful medieval village of South Zeal (13 miles), part of an ancient landscape of standing stones and an old manor house which is now an excellent pub. Visit dramatic Castle Drogo (17 miles), overlooking the Teign Gorge. Take a day trip to historic Exeter (22 miles) to discover the spectacular Norman castle and cathedral or explore winding streets and browse amongst the superb independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Relax on pristine beaches at Bude (27 miles) and Braunton (29 miles), and enjoy fresh local seafood at charming, unchanged Clovelly (32 miles).
