Beautifully presented, RENOVATED PERIOD cottage with FAR REACHING RURAL VIEWS and characterful accommodation with delightful SOUTH FACING gardens set in a peaceful but accessible RURAL LOCATION close to good walks. The cottage is believed to date from 1870 when it was built of mainly stone with slate roof as the manse to the former attached chapel which has now been converted. We understand the property is not Listed and has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners. It is now beautifully presented with many period character features including areas of exposed stone, extensive use of oak flooring on the first floor, period fireplaces with wood burner stove in the sitting room and leaded lancet windows. These features have been combined with modern comforts such as oil fired heating from the ‘Esse’ range cooker with integral boiler within the farmhouse kitchen and double glazed windows. There are captivating far reaching views from both the front and rear of the cottage and keen walkers will enjoy local walks across neighbouring fields to the nearby Devon Wildlife Trust Wildlife Reserve at Meeth and Tarka Trail long distance footpath offering carefree walking and cycling. The south facing well manicured gardens are a striking feature of the property and include a cobbled stone terrace, semi enclosed oak gazebo for alfresco dining, level lawn, a number of trees, period outbuilding, shed, green house and off road parking.


The property is set in a rural but accessible location lying between the villages of Meeth and Petrockstowe, each under 2 miles and not far from the A386 main road giving good access north to Torrington or south to the nearby market town of Hatherleigh for local shops, doctors' surgery, pubs and primary school, leading on to Okehampton and the A30 to the south, giving good access to Exeter or West into Cornwall or carrying on South towards Tavistock and Plymouth.
