This Devon longhouse dates back to 1066 and is steeped in history with many original features such as a well, recesses in the walls and feature fireplaces. Renovated, it is set on the edge of Dartmoor in a tiny hamlet and is surrounded by rolling fields where ponies and cattle graze. Many walks can be enjoyed on the moors a mile away and bird-watchers will take delight in the many species of bird to be found here. A large garden and outdoor swimming pool (heated May-Sept) add extra appeal to this historic house. In close proximity to the A38, in countryside ideal for horse riding, Piles Peek is a great holiday base for exploring the attractions of Devon. Ivybridge is just 3 miles away and offers shops, pubs and leisure centre. Golf (at Wrangaton, 4 miles) and cycling can also be enjoyed locally, with several places of interest all within a short drive of Ivybridge itself. Flete (dating from the Elizabethan era) and the NT property Saltram House (a Georgian mansion) are fine examples of past architecture and for those more interested in the wonders of nature, Kitley Caves at Yealampton, and the Dartmoor Wildlife Park provide a good day out.. Wembury Bay (8 miles) is a marine conservation area supporting a diverse array of plants, birds and marine animals, and has wonderful coastal walks and views across the mouth of the Plymouth Sound. Not far from Wembury are the attractive villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo (flanked by NT woodland) and from the mouth of the Yealm estuary, fishing trips and motor boats are available for hire, with a regatta held in August. Plymouth with its longstanding naval connections is within easy reach, and here the Barbican, the National Marine Aquarium and Plymouth Hoe await discovery. Close to many sandy beaches along the South Hams area, lazy days by the sea can be whiled away. The Eden Project with its diversity of plant habitats is approximately one hour's drive.
