Full description

A gorgeous “Chocolate Box” thatched cottage in a rural position, adjoining farmland and with a generous garden and outbuilding.


Lower Woodhouse Cottage is a detached, Grade II listed thatched cottage in the heart of the Mid-Devon countryside. It sits adjacent to the country lane giving good access whilst bordering local farmland for a truly rural feel.

The cottage has been improved by the current owners having been brought up to date but in a sympathetic way throughout. It is a true cottage and the bespoke windows add a fantastic charm to the look and feel. On the ground floor is a living room complete with wood burner, a kitchen/dining room and a large bathroom. There are 3 first floor bedrooms which could be reconfigured to negate the through room or even the addition of another bathroom (stp).

The garden is enclosed, with timber gates giving access to the driveway and carport. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with plenty of established trees and a stone outbuilding could be utilised as a store or workshop or even an office.

It is worth nothing that the house is near to a working farm as many places in the country are, it is family run locally and provides an excellent long standing neighbour to the cottage but you should be aware of it before viewing.


From Crediton, proceed through the villages of Sandford, Kennerleigh and Black Dog.

Continue to Thelbridge Cross (opposite the Thelbridge Inn) and cross the staggered cross roads.

After approx. 0.6 miles, Lower Woodhouse Cottage will be found on the left.
