J28 - Taddie Barn
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
On the edge of North Tawton, in the ancient hamlet of Essington, is this lovely thatched cottage, once a barn used to store potatoes and now made into an efficient and comfortable home.
Entrance to good-sized hall, neat bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) and L-shaped, open-plan living/dining/kitchen: smart kitchen units along one wall (dishwasher, microwave) and lovely views from the living area (TV/DVD, large glazed wall) over fields towards North Tawton. Steps down from the living area to an enclosed courtyard garden (tables/chairs). Upstairs, two bedrooms, both under the eaves – a double, and a room with two singles and small chill-out area under the window in the eaves. A very friendly and comfortable cottage in a good area worth exploring.

The West Country 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.
North Tawton: large, lively farmers' village (square, all essential shops and an excellent leather-worker, three good food pubs, church) on the river Taw, in hilly red-soil farmland 6 miles north of Dartmoor (lovely views of it from nearby hilltops). Exeter (city), 15 miles; beaches (Bude, Exmouth), about 26.
