On the edge of Manaton, an exceptional conversion of an ancient granite barn into a spacious cottage in a beautiful place. Peaceful, sheltered, it is on a lane in a hamlet of old cottages, farmhouses and trees, 400 yards from Manaton’s pub and about ½ mile walk through woods from Lustleigh Cleave and the River Bovey. Next door to the owners’ former mill (working water wheel), it has its own charming natural garden (lawn, boulders, oak trees, daffodils, garden furniture, barbecue). Woodland/moorland walks from the cottage.
Inside, excellent decor, lighting, furnishings: comfort and warmth; immense trouble taken. Upstairs, all open-plan - picture windows at each end - divided into living (woodburner, TV/Sky/DVD) and dining area and large, well-equipped fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, larder fridge, freezer, electric cooker) with granite worktops and pine floor. Stairs (stairgates) down via half-landing (half-glazed door to garden) to hall, front door and two very pretty bedrooms – a double (5' bed), and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). A tranquil escape.
