A beautifully renovated barn, located within stunning Devon countryside, close to Dartmoor and the dramatic South Devon coastline. Teign Cottage, a semi detached barn conversion with two bedrooms and open-plan living space makes a great escape for the family. For those who love to walk, Teign Cottage offers the perfect base to explore the rugged nearby moors or walk along the many footpaths, passing pretty thatched cottages and stopping off at one of the good food pubs, along the way.
The owners have renovated the barns to a high standard, with slate flooring and oak doors and some of the original features still visible. The downstairs open-plan kitchen/living/dining room offers great, social living space with large oak, glass doors opening out to the gravelled dining terrace. On the first floor, there is a good sized bathroom, twin bedroom with high vaulted ceiling and master bedroom overlooking the shared courtyard and extensive grounds. For those blustery and wet afternoons, switch on the electric living-flame fire and get stuck into that book you've always wanted to finish.
Teign Cottage is one of four holiday cottages, with owners farmhouse on-site too. The cottages have shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool (10mx5m), changing facilities and the added luxury of a sunken hot tub outside on the veranda - where you get to take in some of the gorgeous scenery which surrounds this very quiet hamlet of houses. There is also 4 acres of orchard to explore, plus beautifully maintained gardens, cared for by the very friendly owners. Sit amongst the gardens and enjoy the scents and sounds of the lavender and honey bee's busy working.
It will be hard to resist exploring all of the nearby attractions, towns and walks. Totnes with its vibrant town is less than 6 miles away and the famous Riverford Field Kitchen is just over 10 minutes by car. For those who love a day on the beach, Torquay and it's many seaside attractions is only 10 miles or the famous, Blackpool Sands is 20 miles away. For the children, a day out to Dartington Hall or Paignton Zoo is a must.
