Now a holiday home with rustic character and charm, this property was once part of a larger farmstead. This charming stone-built wing with its own private garden has been converted to a high standard and boasts pretty views over towards Dartmoor.

The West Country region

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Winkleigh

Set in the heart of Devon's rolling countryside, the small rural village of Winkleigh provides a shop, post office, butchers and a café. The two local pubs offer a range of traditional ciders and scrumpy from the Winkleigh Cider Company and visitors can enjoy walks along winding lanes and high hedgerows. For more experienced walkers, the open tors of Dartmoor and the hills of Exmoor provide excellent rambling routes and can be reached in less than 40 minutes by car. Various surfing beaches and the cathedral city of Exeter - with its Roman city walls, shopping centre, theatre and restaurants - are also close by, adding an urban element to this peaceful yet diverse location.
