You have separate access and parking with a gravelled path through a flower/shrub garden to a raised garden (unfenced, steps - caution).

Inside, simple and sophisticated with limestone floors downstairs and wood upstairs. Large, light and airy open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with simple Shaker-style handcrafted cupboards, large butler sink, woodburner, TV/DVD and glazed double doors both sides, one with balustrade and garden views, and one opening to the raised patio/garden with lovely long wooded rural views. From the living area, two flights of stairs (stairgates): one up to a gallery bedroom/den with single bed and pull-out truckle bed, and one down to two more bedrooms – a double (5' bed), and a twin (2'6" beds linkable to 5' double); bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate double shower); utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, Sheila Maid and door to garden; small shower-room (suite).

The West Country region

Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you're at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.

The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field 'oases'. The moor's eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor's middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor's most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.


Yelverton: village (churches, pubs, PO/shops, golf, tennis/badminton, riding) in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Dartmoor. Thirteenth cent. Buckland Abbey, once Sir Francis Drake's (now Nat. Trust), and The Garden House (magical gardens), 2 miles. Tavistock, 6. Plymouth with theatres, cinemas, shops, aquarium, watersports and Saltram House (Nat. Trust), 4½.
