The place:
Throwleigh: little village (modest PO/shop, pretty church) in lanes below Dartmoor’s edge, on the lovely Mariners’ Way walk. ½ mile to pub, and to open moor; 2 to service station (shop); 5 to Chagford and Okehampton (golf, tennis, indoor pool, leisure centre, cinema). Exeter, 18. Fishing and riding not far.

The property:

… a mile from Throwleigh, in the tiny hamlet of East Ash, a beautifully refurbished linhay in a small courtyard of converted farm buildings. To the rear, a granite-walled, enclosed garden with patio and table/chairs (the artist neighbour has access through the garden to a small studio). In total, about 5 acres of land to wander: track to stream, meadow to pond (your risk), a wonderful place to count dragonflies!

Inside, carefully furnished with lovely fabrics, colours and original paintings: a very restful retreat. Door from shared courtyard to boot room/lobby with small cloakroom (loo, washing machine), ideal for wet coats and dogs. Large open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave) with oak floor (rugs), TV/DVD and French windows and steps to the lovely garden. From the kitchen, stairs (bottom stairgate) up to two bedrooms – a very pretty and spacious double with beams and rural views from Velux windows, and a small twin (truckle) with limited clothes-hanging space; exceptionally smart bathroom (suite plus hand-shower and separate shower). Best for maximum of 3. Pub, 1½ miles. A very charming and accessible base; perfect for walkers.
