The moor itself offers many miles of scenic walks for all abilities, ranging from easy strolls through to challenging hikes and climbs. With great transport links nearby, you will also be within a short drive of the stunning cathedral city of Exeter and within an easy reach of the popular tourist destinations of the south coast and the rugged beauty of the northern coastline. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here include the Meldon Reservoir and Viaduct, Lydford Gorge, Roadford Lake, Okehampton Castle, the Miniature Pony Centre and numerous National Trust properties.

Step inside this stunning farmhouse and venture to the right and into the warm and welcoming lounge. This cosy room boasts comfortable sofas arranged around a Smart TV and original inglenook fireplace with wood burner - a lovely place to rest at the end of the day. Located on the opposite side of the hallway is a further space to relax in the shape of a less formal snug which offers a selection of games, Smart TV, Xbox and another original fireplace with a wood burner. Head further inside and then the property opens into a truly impressive and spacious kitchen/diner with a central island with breakfast bar seating and patio doors leading to outside. This room is the perfect venue for laidback family meals whilst the stunning kitchen is equipped with a fabulous range of appliances including an electric double oven and gas hob, warming drawer, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer with ice maker and also a dishwasher. Located beside is also a useful utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, which then leads through to a ground-floor shower room with WC. Completing the offering on this floor there is a delightful little study/reading room with a desk, and this provides somewhere peaceful to catch up on a good book or even a few emails if needed. Venturing up the handcrafted oak staircase and onto the first floor you will then discover the beautiful bedrooms, all lovingly fitted and furnished in a contemporary country style. The first is an opulent super-king-size with lovely countryside views, TV, and an en-suite shower room with WC and a vaulted ceiling, and further to this are two king-size bedrooms with gorgeous forest views, one boasting an en-suite shower room with WC. Making this property a great option for a variety of family groups, there is also a pretty twin bedroom with TV, and a small double. The final room inside the property is a stunning bathroom with a luxurious freestanding bath, separate shower and WC.

Heading outside and into the enclosed garden, further highlights await in the shape of the fabulous outside space which includes a gently sloping lawn, patio area with hot tub, garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ. Enjoy meals alfresco during warm weather and keen walkers can relax in the hot tub after exploring nearby Dartmoor.

Fabulous house, perfect for our Devon holiday. The house has been finished to a very high standard and was comfortable and clean. The location excellent for lots of lovely walks in the area.

The house was very comfortable and well furnished. We spent a lovely week with our kids and grandchildren. Big enough to house 8 adults, a four year old and 3 babies under one year without feeling overcrowded!

The property is in a very quiet, pretty location, yet only a mile from useful shops in Okehampton, and handy for exploring unspoiled North Devon eg cycling the Granite Way, Rosemoor Garden, Drogo Castle. The house is spacious and has been renovated, furnished, and equipped, to a very high standard. We especially appreciated having four shower roomsRead more, the piggery for storing our bikes, a laundry/drying room, the hot tub for relaxing, and facilities for dining al fresco. Wonderful! Hide

Wonderful, wonderful accommodation. There were 8 of us staying celebrating 3 birthdays and one retirement, ages ranging from 3 to 75. The house is so big, 2 lounges to relax in, although we had such beautiful weather we lived in the garden most of the time. The flowers in the garden were so lovely, very calming.
