Drewsteignton: exceptionally pretty village (pub, PO/shop, restaurant, church) on a ridge a mile from the most spectacular part of the river Teign valley (wooded river-bank and heathland walks). Marvellous scenery; fishing; extraordinary Castle Drogo (Nat. Trust); Chagford, 3 miles; the open moor, 6; Exeter, 14.
... by the churchyard in Drewsteignton, a detached, thatched, Grade II listed cottage with its own tiny enclosed garden in front (patio, table/chairs).
Inside, surprisingly light, with some low ceilings/lintels. Mainly white/pale washed walls; pretty furnishings. Hall, off which beamed (5'10") living room with large inglenook open fireplace (logs included) and TV/DVD; 5 steps down to ‘quiet room’ with TV. Good-sized kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, oil-fired Rayburn, electric cooker with induction hob). Steep stairs up to two bedrooms – a lovely good-sized double (5' bed, TV) with ceiling/beams to the apex and windows each side of the room, and a twin (limited clothes-hanging space); bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). A family-enjoyed cottage with pretty paintings and homely touches.
