The River Dart Country Park,Pennywell Farm,the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary,the steam railway,cruises on the River Dart from Totnes,and several pretty moorland villages,all lie within easy reach. Four miles away,the historic town of Ashburton has an excellent range of independent shops,galleries and restaurants. The charming old porch and front door lead into a small lobby and thence into the main hallway. To the left lies the pretty dining room with original deep set windows and curved walls. To the right is the large comfortable sitting room with old inglenook fireplace,wood burner,TV and mini Hi-Fi. This is beautifully furnished to a high standard with antique furniture and paintings - the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the moor. Beyond is a small,cosy second sitting room with TV and DVD,and doors to the courtyard.
