Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Lustleigh - Pond View A136
Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
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 other two barn cottages (A136 and A137) are quite small but delightful: ‘upside down’, imaginatively, very attractively and meticulously done.
Pond View (arrow 2) has small hall leading to utility area (washer-drier, sink); two small bedrooms downstairs – a double with en suite shower-room (suite), and one with bunks (2'6'); bathroom (suite plus bath-power-shower). Gentle stairs up to fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, door to own patio at back); 5 more steps up to light, pretty living room with woodburner, TV/DVD, Velux windows. Best for 2 adults and 2 children. Sleeps maximum of 4, including babies.
All good in any season: a beautiful setting.
