½ mile from Scorriton, in the tiny hamlet of Combe through which the River Mardle meanders to the beautiful, bouldered River Dart, a stunning detached cottage, once home to the author Mary Wesley and a haven from the modern world. Across the little used single-track lane, a small enclosed orchard (picnic bench) and, beyond, a bluebell wood (deer, kingfishers) with the river on one side. Behind the cottage, an enclosed lawned garden plus cobbled/paved terrace (table/chairs).

Inside, pared back and elegant with pale wood and stone floors, soothing white palette and original art. Step up from garden into magnificent oak-framed kitchen/dining room, fully glazed on two sides with the sleek kitchen (dishwasher, larder fridge, electric cooker) along the length. Eight shallow steps down to snug living room (TV/DVD/Blu-ray) with woodburner. Second living room with chaise longue and woodburner, a space for reading/writing. Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, American-style fridge-freezer, sink) and bathroom (suite, hipbath plus hand-shower). Upstairs (some low lintels), two bedrooms, simply furnished – an airy double (6’ bed) with pitched ceiling, views over the garden and shower-room (suite) up 7 steps, and a twin tucked under the eaves, plus smart bathroom (suite with separate shower). Arrival after 4pm. Spring water. A magical and sophisticated cottage in a tranquil, beautiful setting.
