For REFURBISHMENT and MODERNISATION, a Two Bedroomed Attached CHARACTER COTTAGE with Large GARDEN in the Picturesque Moorland Village of Brentor.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located close to the heart of the popular Moorland village of Brentor, nestling on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park.

Brentor is a popular and unspoilt village set in the midst of good riding country on the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park. It has two churches and a village hall. Tavistock is approximately 5 miles away and there is a private bus service which operates to and from the town and Plymouth city centre which is 20 miles away.

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.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

Now requiring modernisation and refurbishment, a two bedroom attached character cottage, with accommodation arranged over two floors, with useful outbuilding. A short walk from the cottage, there is a large garden from which there are super views extending over the surrounding countryside towards Gibbet Hill.
