J149 - Lower Toft Farmhouse
About the home
near the top end of Roadford Lake and at the end of a no through lane is this brilliantly renovated, mainly 17th cent. farmhouse. Set back and up a slope from the lane, so lovely views from all front windows. Lots of wildlife and lambs often (spring/summer) can be seen in surrounding fields. In front, superb large patio/terrace with flower tubs/hanging baskets, at the back much lawn space with ancient oak. A wing of the house is devoted to an indoor heated swimming pool (21' x 10' x 3' to 5'6" deep) with first floor viewing gallery, huge arched glazed doorway to second patio. Adjacent games/exercise room with sauna, rowing and cycling machines, pool table, table tennis, darts, shower and loo.
Inside, the house is beautifully decorated and furnished, light and sunny: ceilings beamed, but not low; all slate floors/rugs downstairs. Entrance (stable doors) from the terrace to small hall; living/dining room with marvellous inglenook open fireplace, window seat, TV/DVD and French windows to patio (table/chairs); reading room (woodburner in ancient fireplace, window seat); excellent, bright, modern kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, double oven/halogen hob, pine table) with back door to garden and stairs (stairgate) down to the pool, sauna, etc; twin bedroom with door to pool viewing gallery and en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower); another downstairs loo (washbasin).

The West Country / Devon region
Devons River Country: Devon's middle. This is farmers' Devon. You come here to be amongst them: to walk and admire their beautiful, rich-soiled, hilly and wooded farmland and enjoy their excellent, proper pubs in usually hill-top, compact, unspoilt villages; and to fish for trout and perhaps salmon in the deep wooded and very beautiful valleys of the rivers Torridge, Taw, Tamar and Exe especially and for trout in reservoirs. Great, magnetic views of Dartmoor and Exmoor from most hill-tops, and it's an easy drive to both. But don't think a daily trip to the sea will be a doddle.
Tiverton is the main town (you can go barging on its canal); Crediton, in its red-soil vale, Torrington, where glass is blown, and South Molton are the others. All have proper, individual, useful, and, in some cases unusual, shops, for the locals firstly. Cider is made at Winkleigh, and it's a good place for lunch. Hatherleigh is good for several things, including its market.
The Dartmoor / Roadford Lake area
Roadford Lake: spectacular 730-acre reservoir and country park in a beautiful, sparsely populated conservation area. Big watersports centre: boats, kayaks and windsurf boards for hire (courses/instruction available); trout fishing; archery, high ropes, climbing wall. Visitors' centre/café from which various walks (good birdwatching; disabled facilities), 3 miles; birdwatching hides, 1; footpaths and cycle routes. Germansweek (church), 1 mile; shops and pubs, 5. The sea/beaches of north Cornwall (Bude, Boscastle), 20.
