3 miles from Chagford, on the edge of the historic moorland hamlet of Lettaford - just a handful of mostly medieval granite cottages at the end of a lane from which a footpath leads directly to the open moor (⅓ mile) and the Two Moors Way passes through - a large, detached, Grade II listed house, imaginatively converted from a barn. It is set back and tucked away from the other houses, sheltered at the front by a stone wall with pergola and swing seats, with a good-sized lawned garden at the back (barbecue, table/chairs, play equipment for small children).
Inside, natural wood (beams, floors/rugs, doors) and exposed granite. Tiled hall; living/dining room with large fireplace (woodburner) and refectory table. Three steps up to fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, electric hob/double oven, larder fridge) with small breakfast table/chairs, door to gravelled area and floor-to-ceiling windows; drying room for coats/boots; two bedrooms – one with two singles and glazed door to garden, and a double; downstairs bathroom (suite plus hand-shower and separate shower, handrails). Curved wooden stairs (stairgates) up to two more wood-floored, good-sized bedrooms – the master double (5' bed/TV) with en suite shower-room (suite), and one with four singles (truckles) and en suite loo, both with Velux windows with countryside views. 2 TVs/DVD/video. Outside, laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer).Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. An extremely peaceful base for observing nature (moon and barn owl watching), moorland walks or just getting away from it all.
Rockmead is a really lovely barn conversion, with comfortable and clean bedrooms, a really spacious lounge and well equipped kitchen. It sits in a large and secure garden ideal for our dogs. The location is secluded yet close to so many of the lovely attractions and areas Devon has to offer. We had a truly enjoyable and relaxing stay and were very sad to leave.
