High on the valley-side 3 miles (by car) north-east of Lustleigh, 200 yards of private drive from the public lane and about 1 mile from beautiful fishing reservoirs and walks (woods, rhododendrons), is a very much praised and appreciated place. Attached to the charming owners' farmhouse are four very good and attractive cottages, three made from barns. All share an indoor heated swimming pool (behind the cottages), 29' x 12' x 4' deep, with shower/loo/basin/baby changing room and paved terrace with sun loungers. You are welcome on the owners’ 35 acre farm which includes moorland with spectacular Dartmoor tor and ancient stone row. Wonderful Dartmoor views and even to the sea from most fields. Sheep, lambs (in season), ducks and chickens (egg collecting). Stabling/grazing for your own horses. An abundance of flora and fauna (badgers, deer, foxes, owls). Children's play area (sandpit, slide, swing, climbing frame) behind the pool building. Games room (table tennis, half-sized snooker table, pool, football game, children’s games). Lovely walks and birdwatching round the reservoirs (less than a mile). Spring water. Phone/fax in owners??? office. Stairgates, baby monitors, nightlights and socket covers in all (except A139). Paved garden leads to lawn with picnic table, big shady trees, two ponds (unfenced, small children beware), and shrub/woodland valley-garden (deer-visited) with stream and steep footpath down to Lustleigh (1 mile to pub). Each cottage has its own pretty, paved, enclosed patio (flowers, furniture, barbecue).
The cottage (arrow 1) called Tor Field is, inside, pretty, interesting, good quality, with excellent lighting, some exposed granite, split-level. Hall (freezer); up some steps into comfortable living room (woodburner) with TV/DVD, oak floor, French windows to forecourt; more steps up to extremely well-fitted (limed oak) kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave) with glazed door to patio; utility room (washer-drier, shower, loo). Upstairs, landing (lovely views), three bedrooms (all with washbasins) – a double, a twin, and a small single (2'6' bed); bathroom (suite plus bath-power-shower, bidet). Sleeps maximum of 5, including babies.
All good in any season: a beautiful setting.
