Built in the 1920s as a lodge to Gidleigh Park estate, it has been restored and extended by the present owners to retain original features including high ceilings with picture rails, Russian pine waxed floors, panelled doors and cupboards with door furniture and wood, brick and cast iron fireplaces. The restoration has enhanced the property with bespoke hardwood leaded double glazed windows and sills, Bromleigh electric switches, wall plugs and ceiling pendants with oak back plates , central heating, an Aga in the breakfast room, underfloor heating in the kitchen. There is a main bedroom with a wet room, two further bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.

The gardens are well stocked with large lawned areas and shady spots to sit out. The double garage is generous and there is plenty of space for parking. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing.

From Fowlers go to the top of The Square and turn right into Mill Street. After about 200 metres you bear right into the continuation of Mill Street which drops down into the Teign Valley and then turns right and goes through some bollards and over Factory Bridge. About 100 metres after the bridge take the left turn which rises and curls around Walland Hill and then leads to the T junction at Murchington. Turn left in Murchington and follow this lane for about a mile to the junction at Gidleigh. On the left are two metal gates into the property. The second higher gate is the preferred access.
