BEAUTIFUL CHOCOLATE BOX Grade II listed thatched cottage, surrounded on three sides by a delightful walled cottage garden, situated in the heart of this pretty MOORLAND VILLAGE. The property, dating back over 400 years in parts, offers a wealth of charm and character, situated in a picturesque village which itself is steeped in history, with the village green still retaining the old stocks.  From the garden gate one can enjoy open views and immediate access onto Dartmoor National Park, a short walk from The Nine Maidens Stone Circle, Belstone Tor, and the beautiful Skaigh valley.

Belstone has a thriving and very active community, with a popular local pub, church, tea room, visiting Post Office, weekly Community Cafe and many other events in the village hall, and is less than a mile from an excellent shop selling local and organic produce.

The village is located just outside the bustling former market town of Okehampton, which offers a wide range of local amenities, including primary and secondary schooling.  One can easily access the A30 corridor with the cathedral city of Exeter being approximately a twenty-five to thirty minute drive away, offering a comprehensive retail and commercial centre as well as additional road, rail and air links. The nearby villages of Sticklepath and South Zeal offer a further range of local amenities.


THE PROPERTY:

The property sits on a level plot, with attractive landscaped gardens, and gated access. There are two patio areas, one leading off a modern extension to the beautiful Kitchen/Dining room, which enjoys a southerly aspect.

There is underfloor heating and double glazing in the new extension, and Cosy Home double glazing has been installed in the older part of the cottage. The property has been sympathetically modernised to a high standard, and makes a wonderful family home within this idyllic location.
