Brackenmoor has been lovingly refurbished and modernised over a number of years and is currently let as a high quality holiday rental. It is beautifully finished with original character features restored and many more modern complimentary additions. The accommodation is bright with large sash windows in strategic locations allowing in plenty of lovely natural light. The living room is of particular note being spacious and with a superb engineered oak floor which is partly underfloor heated to compliment the central heating to radiators and also benefitting from a wood burning stove in the granite fireplace. The kitchen is well fitted with hand built units and it adjoins the living room. The two large double bedrooms are bright and well decorated and each has a very smart ensuite bathroom or shower room. Outside there is parking and a well maintained communal garden area with a large lawn. We very strongly recommend viewing this house to properly appreciate it.
Brackenmoor is set in the centre of Sticklepath, a lively Dartmoor village with easy access to the moor up the riverside footpath alongside the River Taw which is only 100 metres away. The village has two good pubs and a village shop and there is the fascinating National Trust Finch Foundry and a village hall. Less than a mile away in nearby South Zeal is a primary school. The A30 dual carriageway is less than two miles away and Okehampton with its wide range of specialist and day to day shops is less than 3 miles. Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
This is a shared entrance porch and it has a black painted part multi paned door. Inside there is a mat well and a newly floored area with slate effect vinyl. One of the panelled doors is owned by Brackenmoor and inside is both storage and the new floor mounted Grant oil fired central heating boiler. An internal part panelled and part glazed door of stripped wood leads into the private entrance lobby for Brackenmoor.
The lobby is floored with beautiful granite flags with a decorative ceramic skirting. This hard wearing floor is ideal for wet wellies and wet coats could be hung up to dry. An oak panelled and part glazed door leads into the hallway.

In the centre of Sticklepath is the village shop. From the shop walk across the adjacent narrow lane and there is a slated porch facing out to the pavement. This is the formal entrance to Brackenmoor, however, If you take the narrow lane by the shop there is an entrance on the right into the parking for Steddaford Court and the courtyard entrance to the house is clearly visible with the name Brackenmoor on a slate plaque beside it. This is probably the best entrance to use as you can park in the courtyard.
