The property occupies an enviable location, situated down a private lane (with 3 further properties), yet being within the heart of the picturesque Dartmoor village of Throwleigh. The village itself has an historic 15th century church, whilst in the nearby hamlet of Wonson, there is the well known local inn, the Northmore Arms and Village Hall. From the village there are many footpaths leading into the surrounding countryside and woodlands and up onto the high moor with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. The popular Dartmoor town of Chagford is some three miles away offering a good range of day to day and specialised independent shops, as well as a primary school, Montessori nursery, public houses and hotel, a health clinic, dentist and library. The town of Okehampton offers a wider range of shops, services, education and recreational facilities. From Throwleigh, there is easy access to the A30 dual carriageway, providing a direct link with the cathedral and university city of Exeter with its M5 motorway, main line rail and international air connections.DESCRIPTION
