A DELIGHTFUL CHARACTER COTTAGE offering spacious two bedroomed accommodation, with pleasant gardens bordering the river Okement with attractive river views. The property is situated a level walk from the town centre and amenities, and a short walk from a bridge over the river, leading to open countryside & Dartmoor. The cottage is located just a short distance from the historic Okehampton castle, which we understand was visited by Henry VIII. The property has been exceptionally well maintained by the current owner, and enjoys a spacious sitting room, kitchen / breakfast room and small conservatory to the rear. To the first floor are two bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom/WC with separate shower cubicle. The property is double glazed and has gas fired central heating and would ideally suit those seeking a pretty character cottage in a quiet and convenient location. The nearby city of Exeter is only 22 miles away and from late 2021 a renewal rail service will connect Okehampton to Exeter and the main Penzance to Paddington line.
