300 yards from the good food pub in Manaton, on a hedgerow-sheltered lane leading to the moors, a detached cottage beautifully converted from an old barn. It has the benefit of modern insulation/underfloor heating with the charm of ancient stonework. To one side, cobbled courtyard (table/chairs) and opposite, over a little lane, steps up to big, gently sloping garden (picnic table/chairs) with space for ball games or quiet reflection. Fourteen acres of woods and fields to explore (following the country code, dogs not permitted where livestock grazes); Hayne Brook runs beside the paddocks, perfect for Pooh sticks.

Six steps up to front door to hall with coats-cupboard; utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, loo); spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric cooker, hand-crafted cupboards, granite worktops) with slate and oak floor, woodburner, TV/DVD, big feather sofa and glazed door to courtyard. Open tread stairs up to two bedrooms – a double (5’ bed) with balustrade and en suite shower-room (suite), and another double (5' zip-linked bed or 2'6" twins) with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower). DIY stabling, by arrangement (extra). A quality cottage within walking distance of the open moor; fine walks from the doorstep.

Reviews

A stunning cottage which provided everything we could have asked for in a beautiful location. All six of us (including dogs Anton and Aaron) greatly enjoyed our week's holiday in the 'Bothy'. Many thanks to Tim and Sarah for their hospitality and helpfulness.
