SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION This lovely character cottage is located in the heart of the sought-after Dartmoor village of Bridestowe.



Bridestowe is situated at the head of the Lew Valley at the north western foothills of the Dartmoor National Park and surrounded by some of Devon's finest countryside. The village centre incorporates a well patronised general store, public house, church and primary school.



The A30 dual carriageway to Exeter and the M5 is approximately 5 minutes from the property and the open moorland of the Dartmoor National Park begins just a mile from the village.





Okehampton lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains several banks and supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. The recreation ground and park contains, amongst other things, a covered heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts, indoor rifle range and thriving rugby and soccer clubs.





A well-presented terraced cottage, dating back to circa 1790, with many character features including original fireplace, exposed timber ceilings and deep silled windows. The property has undergone a great deal of work in recent years by the current owners and is presented to a very high standard throughout.



The accommodation, in brief, comprises sitting room with feature fireplace and woodburner; a well-equipped kitchen/dining room, with integrated appliances and a contemporary ground floor bathroom. To the first floor are three bedrooms, with the master bedroom benefiting from an en suite shower room.





Due to location of the cottage in the heart of the village, to the rear there is a lovely outlook over the grounds of the village Church and to the surrounding countryside beyond.





In the nearby sporting green is a useful store shed. The sellers currently rent a nearby allotment for £50 per annum, which we believe could be taken on by the next owner of the cottage (further details on request).

We are delighted to be appointed as sole agents for the sale of this lovely cottage and viewing is highly recommended.
