SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a quiet position in the popular moorland village of Mary Tavy, on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park.



Mary Tavy is a small village situated approximately 4 miles north of Tavistock on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. It has its own primary school, post office, church and an inn, and has a private bus service to and from Tavistock. Plymouth city centre is about 19 miles distant with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.



Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

A detached two double bedroomed bungalow occupying a generous plot with pleasant landscaped garden, private driveway parking, a single integral garage and separate carport. The property benefits from PVCu double glazing and is warmed by oil fired central heating.
