The place:
Ashprington: pretty village with good food pubs, straddling Bow Creek, a tributary of the River Dart. Totnes (very attractive old town on the Dart), 3 miles. Dartmouth (town) and golf, 8 miles.

The property:


... on the 550 acre Capability Brown-designed Sharpham Estate (vineyard, wine tasting, award-winning seasonal café) 2 miles from Ashprington (½ mile rough track), on a bend of the River Dart, a Grade II* Georgian bathing house, secluded in trees with only an occasionally occupied boathouse as neighbour. You are welcome to use the outdoor swimming pool (26' 3'' x 16' 5'' x 3' 3'' to 6' 6'' deep, available June to end of August, daylight hours), wander parts of the estate and explore the gardens. An idyllic, tranquil situation with views to wooded banks, a riverside terrace (table/chairs, fishing - sea bass) and steps down to the river (gated) with only lapping water and passing canoes, boats and the occasional seal to disturb. A wildlife haven (birdwatching).

 

Eight steps (handrail) down to terrace and simple beamed kitchen (microwave, solid fuel range, electric cooker, larder fridge); step up utility room (dishwasher, washer-drier, freezer, loo). Upstairs, a double bedroom (5' bed, footboard) with glazed door to small balcony and fabulous river views, bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Up more stairs to living room - the original octagonal bathing house with high ceilings, ornate plaster work, woodburner, double sofa bed and windows looking up and down river. Binoculars provided (no TV). Spring water. All proceeds to the Sharpham Trust educational charity. Three mile walk to Totnes (partly on scenic cycle path). A simple, romantic retreat in which to unwind and reflect.
