Description from owner

Description

Down Cottage is a delightful granite cottage in an idyllic setting with stunning views across Dartmoor. Part of a magnificent estate built in 1911 for the Jameson whisky family, Down Cottage sleeps four people and offers the perfect mix of luxury and seclusion. Set just outside the pretty Stannary town of Chagford, it's a great base for walking on Dartmoor and for generally relaxing and getting away from absolutely everything!

The cottage has been renovated with sensitivity and style, using muted Farrow & Ball colours and an eclectic mix of largely antique furniture and quality soft furnishings lovingly sought out and styled by the owners. It sleeps 4 guests - one bedroom has a 6' queen-size 4-poster bed and the other has two singles which can be zipped together to form another queen-size double. The bathroom is elegant and well equipped with a bath, plus bath-shower and washbasin. There are two separate toilets. There are TVs in the lounge and both bedrooms.

Immediately to the front of the house is a small, enclosed lawned garden with a mature copper beech hedge. To the side is a small terrace with garden furniture – a perfect secluded suntrap looking out over glorious countryside.

Situated about 1½ miles from the centre of Chagford, Down Cottage is set high on a hill with wonderful views towards Meldon Down and the surrounding moor. The cottage overlooks a shared drive to one side of the main house and is attached to an arch that leads to a stable yard. There are no horses now and peace and quiet is assured. The owners live in the main house with their three dogs and guests are welcome to explore the extensive ten-acre garden and grounds of their property.

As well as the formal gardens and lawns there is an area, almost like a mini-tor, of moss-covered granite boulders a great place to sit and contemplate, with wonderful views. The grounds extend down to the South Teign River and makes a delightful walk.

Dartmoor in Devon was designated a National Park by statute in 1951. It is 368 square miles (954 sq km) in area and and is a wild and beautiful area to explore.

Location description from owner

The England region

The small Stannary town of Chagford, prettily nestled among the Dartmoor hills, is a great place to visit. At its heart are the two well-known family-run shops of Webbers and Bowdens – a visit to both will take up at least half a day of your time! There are also traditional craft shops and local artists, clothes shops, cafés and pubs, all clustered around a small square with a pretty 'pepperpot' building at its centre.

There is an award-winning outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and superb walking in every direction. The River Teign hurries through woods and meadows nearby and on below Castle Drogo (National Trust), an imposing landmark set high on a granite outcrop.

The town of Okehampton and City of Exeter are around half an hour away in opposite directions, or take a stunning drive across the moor to come to the pretty town of Tavistock. The whole expanse of Dartmoor is on the doorstep waiting to be explored.

If you want to travel further afield, Devon has glorious south and north coasts.
