Spacious with panoramic views, it's the ideal hideaway for families, couples or groups of friends. Great for relaxing, hiking & the coast. Surrounded by nature in a lovely village with good pub. The perfect place for holidays and weekend breaks.
Built in the 1890s and being a family home, the house is not a sterile and perfected space but a lovely old and warm space with its own personality, character and quirks. It is the perfect place to wind down and relax. The house is set in undulating countryside and lush grounds in the eastern corner of Dartmoor National Park near the coastline. Five comfortable bedrooms can accommodate families, groups or couples. The view from every room is stunning and a huge terrace and garden offer space for dining and lounging.
The view is beautiful, overlooking a valley. Visitors often find their sleep is unusually deep and refreshing, thanks to the palpable silence at night and the complete absence of intrusive light.
Our home has a wonderful big kitchen with direct access to the huge terrace. The cosy sitting room has cushioned window seats, two sofas and an open fireplace. The drawing room also has an open fireplace, as well as a sofa, big armchairs and a French window door opening out onto the terrace. There is even a billiards table in the hall.
Wildlife can be spotted from any of the bedrooms, hardly a day goes by without a few deer grazing on the green beneath the terrace or by the driveway in the morning and a couple of buzzards circling the valley.
Our house is set in the foothills of Dartmoor National Park, a mile from Lustleigh village center with its well-known local Pub, The Cleave. The house is easily accessible by car, 30 minutes from Exeter, 15 minutes from the A38 and one mile from the village centre.
