*OFFERING NO ONWARD CHAIN!* The COTTAGE is a GREAT EXAMPLE of a VERSATILE, semi-detached VILLAGE property, within the HEART of the small MID DEVON village of Zeal Monachorum. The GARDEN is PRIVATE, SOUTH FACING and there are VIEWS out over the village to the surrounding countryside and to Dartmoor in the far distance. The house itself has been well maintained and updated by the current owners, the oil fired Rayburn and wood burner provides heating and hot water and the roof was replaced in 2013. There are plenty of character features including exposed beams and a stone fireplace. The accommodation briefly compromises of an entrance porch and hallway, which leads into the kitchen with a door into the living room with a wood burning stove. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all enjoying far reaching countryside views, as well as the family bathroom.


The village has amenities including a church, village hall and a popular country pub with leisure facilities. ‘The Waie Inn’ offers great food & drink, both outdoor and indoor children’s play areas, a heated swimming pool, skittle alley, large function rooms (for weddings, parties etc), an astro turf pitch, squash courts, fishing lake and B&B rooms. Its name is of Latin origin ‘Cella Monachorum’ – meaning ‘Cell of the Monks’. Like many Devon villages Zeal is home to a number of period properties, and buildings that have a strict conservation status – preserving the traditional beauty expected from rural settlements. The nearby village of Bow (2 miles) has a primary school, doctors surgery, pub and small supermarket. There is also a primary school, petrol station and garage at Lapford (3 miles). The large towns of Crediton (10 miles) and Okehampton (9 miles) offer an excellent range of day-to-day facilities and amenities. The university and cathedral city of Exeter (17 miles) has all the amenities to be expected from a regional centre of its importance including two mainline railway stations to London Paddington and Waterloo as well as an international airport.
