Charming CHARACTER COTTAGE with many ORIGINAL FEATURES, three bedrooms, 19ft kitchen/utility room, GARDEN and SUMMERHOUSE, close to the VILLAGE AMENITIES.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A charming character cottage located in the heart of the village.

The village of Bere Alston offers a wide range of shopping facilities as well as a post office, doctors' surgery, chemist and highly rated primary school. The Tamar Valley railway line links Bere Alston to Plymouth in 20 minutes, with connections from there to London. The unspoilt surroundings of the Tamar Valley with its rolling hills, meandering rivers and ancient woodlands are ideally suited to those who enjoy walking, riding and water sports.

The market town of Tavistock is a five mile drive away and offers a variety of additional facilities including a number of supermarkets, The Wharf Cultural Centre, notable boutiques, delicatessens and the Pannier Market.

The cottage dates back, we believe, to the mid 1800s enjoying a wealth of charm and character throughout with many original features, including the family bible cupboard. The property has been improved and updated by the current owner with bespoke designed fire mantels, door and window lintels and sympathetically brought up to date.

With a cottage garden, three good sized bedrooms, two reception rooms, kitchen and family bathroom, this would make a fantastic family home within walking distance of the village amenities.
