Cottwood is a delightful rural hamlet close to the small and peaceful rural village of Riddlecombe, which is tucked away within gently rolling and unspoilt Devon countryside. The nearby villages of Burrington, Dolton and Winkleigh all have managed to retain a good range of the local services associated with traditional Devon villages, with thriving local communities, village shops, primary schools, public houses local butchers and places of worship. The large town of Chumleigh lies just 5.5 miles to the east and provides a highly regarded primary and secondary schooling, a sports centre, post office, various shops, a health centre, dentist, public houses, restaurants and a historic town hall. Despite the rural location, there is still easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes with the A3124 and A377 providing an easy link to the larger towns of Great Torrington, South Molton and Barnstaple, all providing a good range of local services including shops, banks recreational facilities, health centres, primary and secondary schooling. From South Molton and Barnstaple the A361 North Devon link road provides quick and easy access to the M5 motorway (Junction 27). There are nearby rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Kings Nympton and Eggesford, with main line rail services available at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, and international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

The property is approached via a shared private entrance track which is also a public bridleway and leads to the parking area providing parking for two vehicles. A stable door gate opens to a stone walled path leading to the front door and continues onto the garden. The south facing garden is divided over two sections. The first section has a delightful seating area which is perfect for admiring the breathtaking viewings over the surrounding countryside, there is also a useful log store and an external oil fired boiler. Stone steps lead up to the raised large, mainly level lawned garden enjoying a good degree of privacy and seclusion, further raised stone steps lead up to an elevated gravelled patio area which would be perfect for enjoying the evening sunshine and again taking in the extensive views. There is a useful summer house as well as a 12' log cabin which benefits from having power and light connected and would lend itself very well as a home office or studio.
