Chagford: lively, friendly little town (pubs, shops, outdoor swimming pool, tennis) away from main roads in the shelter of high Dartmoor. Past it the river Teign (fishing) hurries through woods and meadows below Castle Drogo (Nat. Trust). Excellent walking; superb views. Open moor, 2 miles; golf, 3; Exeter (city amenities), 17; sea/beaches, about 20.
... 50 yards from Chagford town centre, a 'bolt hole' for two, stylishly renovated by its artist owner. Down a footpath beside the cottage, within the friendly owner's beautifully designed cottage garden, is your own private 'garden room' (table/chairs, sun loungers, barbecue), a peaceful and relaxing sanctuary beside a leat.
Hall; 5 steps down to spacious living/dining room with good furniture and pictures, TV/DVD, iPod dock. Four more steps down to well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer). Upstairs, a double bedroom (5' bed) with steps up to bathroom (suite with roll-top bath with shower over). A special cottage to which many return every year.
