A characterful three bedroom cottage situated on the edge of Mary Tavy, close to The Mary Tavy Inn with stunning views over Dartmoor from the extensive rear gardens.

To the front is a good size sitting room with wooden floors and built in alcove storage, ideal for logs, plus a handy under stairs storage cupboard. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the back with some integrated appliances and plenty of space for a table in front of the log burner. The kitchen sink is ideally positioned to make the most of the beautiful views down the garden and there is also a useful utility/larder cupboard for your white goods. Upstairs are three bedrooms, with the main bedroom on the back having the views. There is a spacious bathroom with a four piece suite including a separate walk in shower cubicle and tiled bath.

Externally the gardens offer a huge amount of storage space for anyone interested in outdoor pursuits. There are three wooden storage sheds plus a more substantial workshop, outside WC and a summerhouse at the bottom of the garden which has electricity and is currently set up for additional guests to stay in with a built in bed, but would make a great office. The back and side of the summerhouse has also been boarded out to provide more storage. The garden itself is mostly laid to lawn with a Devon bank to one side overlooking neighbouring fields. It is gently sloped with an open aspect at the end so your eyes are drawn to the sweeping views over Dartmoor, there is also an entertaining area with a firepit, built in BBQ and seating to enjoy the evening sun.
