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 south of Torrington, a pretty, south-facing, detached, thatched, Grade II listed cottage, sheltered in a wooded river valley (very private); 50 yards away is a stream and the Tarka Trail (30 miles of disused railway to walk/cycle) - a particularly lovely stretch of it. 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 a wild, sloping woodland garden and orchard - great for older children.

Tiny porch for boots/coats; stable doors to living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with big inglenook (woodburner), original beams, window seat with views of garden and woods, comfy chairs (no sofa), rocking chair, TV/DVD; small bathroom (bath, bath-shower, washbasin); separate loo/washbasin (washing machine, spin drier). Steep stairs up to three bedrooms two double, one with washbasin, and a single with limited clothes-hanging space, all with wood floors/rugs (low beams in single and one double). Shed (lockable) for bicycles. A sweet little cottage in a beautiful valley with plenty of space for energetic older children, but not suitable for elderly people or children under 4.
