The place:
Torrington: ancient small town above the River Torridge (fishing). Dartington Crystal factory (tours, glass-blowing). Just out of town are RHS Rosemoor Gardens and bicycle hire for the Tarka Trail to Bideford (Elizabethan port) and sea/sand at Instow, 10 miles. Golf and huge beach at Westward Ho!, and Appledore, 10 miles. Dartmoor, 20.

The property:


... about 3 miles from Torrington, a pretty, south-facing, detached, thatched, Grade II listed cottage, sheltered very privately in a wooded river valley; 50 yards away, a stream and a particularly lovely stretch of the Tarka Trail (30 miles of disused railway to walk/cycle). Majestic beech trees shelter the cottage and owls. To its front, a little cobbled garden (bench); to one side, terrace (table/chairs) and 6 steps up to wild, sloping woodland garden and orchard - great for older children.

Tiny porch for boots/coats and small step up to stable doors. Living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with big inglenook (woodburner), beams, window seat with views of garden and woods, comfy chairs (no sofa) and TV/DVD; small bathroom (bath with shower over, washbasin); separate loo (washing machine). Steep, narrow stairs up to landing with step up into three bedrooms two double, one with washbasin, and a single (limited clothes-hanging space), all with wood floors (rugs) and low beams in the single and one double. Lockable shed (tumble drier) for bicycles. Not suitable for people with limited mobility or children under 3 due to steep stairs and garden slopes and drops. A sweet little cottage in a beautiful valley with plenty of space for energetic older children.
