A carefully renovated and beautifully restored two-bedroom Grade II Listed Duke of Bedford cottage with old piggery/store and pleasant courtyard garden. Located within easy, level walking distance of Tavistock town centre and the amenities therein.

This lovely Grade II Listed Duke of Bedford cottage has been sympathetically restored to a particularly high standard whilst retaining a wealth of warmth and character with many appealing period features such as the original fireplace (now with a woodburning stove), ceiling beams, period windows, doors and joinery work, slate windowsills. For convenience a well-designed modern kitchen has been installed and a sleek shower room complete with full-size, walk-in shower. The cottage is warmed by modern gas fired central heating, and a stove in the sitting room makes for cosy winter nights.
