Situation - Heron Cottage is an attached period cottage in the delightful hamlet of Jordan which sits on the banks of the West Webburn River not far from the highly popular village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. Widecombe, famed for its annual fair in September, is a destination for many visitors to Dartmoor to sample its stunning scenery, the ancient church, shops, and popular public houses. Recreational opportunities abound as the walking, riding and cycling in this part of the moor provide interest and breathtaking views around every corner. The larger towns of Ashburton and Bovey Tracey offer a wider range of amenities and both sit adjacent to the A38/Devon Expressway, providing easy access to Plymouth, Exeter and the M5 motorway network. Mainline rail stations can be found in Newton Abbot and Totnes, with direct links to London Paddington.

Description - Heron Cottage is positioned in a sheltered combe with wide, gently sloping lawns stretching down to the banks of the river, creating a special atmosphere and an exceptional outlook. The cottage has been lovingly and tastefully restored, retaining much of the original exposed granite and timber. The property is a charming character cottage, offering a light and contemporary living space. In addition the detached Garden Hus makes an ideal space for visiting friends and family and/or paying B&B guests alike.

Accommodation - (Please see accompanying floorplan). The ground floor of Heron Cottage is made up of the kitchen/breakfast room and the open plan sitting/dining room with granite inglenook, woodburner and granite staircases. Both rooms have access out onto a glass-roofed, green oak verandah with views across the gardens. The first floor is made up of two sizeable double bedrooms, the master having an en suite shower room. Also a pretty cottage style family bathroom - both bathrooms have comfortable underfloor heating. The Scandinavian garden Hus is private from the main house and contains a wall of windows and glazed doors on the southern face overlooking the river. The main room is a lovely large bedroom/sitting area with an en suite shower room.

Outside - There are 2 parking spaces adjacent to a pedestrian main gate and the south facing garden includes a section of dry stone wall and hedged borders, wide grass lawns and pathways, several specimen trees and shrubs. The garden Hus lies in the lower part of the garden, beyond which is the West Webburn river - a delightful feature in this most charming and private location. At the rear of the cottage is a stone built former barn, fashioned into a useful workshop and storage area with stairs to an insulated first floor room with south facing roof light, currently used as a daily work-from-home office with telephone and broadband connection.

Services - Mains electricity, private water, private drainage, oil fired central heating, woodburning stove.
