This wonderful property is situated centrally within Lydford, a medieval village of some historic note, located on the Western edge of the moor, within Dartmoor National Park and popular with those keen on exploring the region. Open moorland can be found within a mile, as can the National Trust site of Lydford Gorge on the edge of Lydford Forest. The village is served by two pubs, an Ofsted "Good"-rated Primary School and a popular farm shop. Lydford is almost equidistant between the towns of Tavistock and Okehampton which, collectively, offer a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. Furthermore, the cathedral city of Exeter lies some 35 miles to the east, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway, in addition to an international airport.DESCRIPTION

The first floor landing runs the length of the property; at one end, the master bedroom is linked to a bijou dressing suite, complete with a bespoke oak dressing table incorporating a wash basin, plus a tiled shower enclosure. There are two further bedrooms, one of which currently functions as a study with an arrow-slit internal window. The attractive family bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite. A particularly individual feature of the property is the vaulted gallery space between the landing and the dining area below, which formerly housed a staircase but now appears as a contemporary glass balustrade with exposed stone wall surround, designed to allow greater natural light into the ground floor.OUTSIDE

The lawns are bordered with colourful herbaceous beds, and interspersed with raised boxes and specimen trees, whilst a slate patio can be found outside of the dining area.
