about 3 miles south of Torrington, a pretty, south-facing, detached, thatched, Grade II listed cottage, sheltered in a wooded river valley (very private); 50 yards away is a stream and the Tarka Trail (30 miles of disused railway to walk/cycle) - a particularly lovely stretch of it. Majestic beech trees shelter the cottage and owls.

Tiny porch for boots/coats; stable doors to living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with big inglenook (woodburner), original beams, window seat with views of garden and woods, comfy chairs (no sofa), rocking chair, TV/DVD; small bathroom (bath, bath-shower, washbasin); separate loo/washbasin (washing machine, spin drier). Steep stairs up to three bedrooms – two double, one with washbasin, and a single with limited clothes-hanging space, all with wood floors/rugs (low beams in single and one double). Shed (lockable) for bicycles. A sweet little cottage in a beautiful valley with plenty of space for energetic older children, but not suitable for elderly people or children under 4.

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.

Torrington

Torrington: ancient small town above the river Torridge (fishing). Dartington Crystal factory (tours, glass-blowing). Just out of town are RHS Rosemoor Gardens and bicycle hire for the Tarka Trail to Bideford (Elizabethan port) and sea/sand at Instow, 10 miles. Golf and huge beach at Westward Ho!, and Appledore, 10 miles. Dartmoor, 20.
