Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Manaton - The Bothy A191
Sleeps 4, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom
300 yards from the good-food pub at Manaton, on a hedgerow- sheltered lane leading up to the high moors, a detached cottage newly (2012/13) and beautifully converted from an old stone barn. It has all the benefits of modern insulation and under-floor heating combined with the charm of ancient stonework. To one side, cobbled courtyard garden (table/chairs) and opposite, over the little access lane, steps up to big gently sloping grassed garden with picnic table/chairs and loads of space for ball games or just quiet reflection. In total, there are 14 acres of the owners’ grounds to explore; Hayne brook runs alongside the paddocks, perfect for Pooh sticks.
Six steps up to front door to hall with coats-cupboard; utility room with washing machine, tumble-drier, loo (washbasin); spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave) with beautifully hand-crafted oak cupboards and granite worktops, woodburner, slate and oak floor, TV/DVD, big feather sofa and glazed door to courtyard. From the living room open tread stairs up to two bedrooms – a double (5��� bed) with balustrade and en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin (2’6” beds – zip-linkable to 5’ double) with en suite bathroom (suite).
DIY stabling, shooting (clays) and fishing available by arrangement (extra). A top quality cottage within walking distance of the open moor; fine walks from the doorstep.
