The cottage has great character throughout and is well proportioned with a generous sitting room and dining room, a refitted kitchen with stone work surfaces, an upstairs shower room and three double bedrooms off the landing. Over the last two years the cottage has had new drainage, a new wood burner and flue, new front and back doors, extensive damp proofing and a complete redecoration throughout.

There are good sports facilities with a cricket and football pitch and pavilion in an idyllic spot, a tennis club, bowling club and an open air swimming pool in the summertime. Surrounding Chagford are a wide variety of moorland, countryside and riverside walks. The A30 dual carriageway is approximately 5 miles away and the county town of Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
