The village of Bere Alston offers a wide range of shopping facilities as well as a post office, doctors' surgery, chemist and highly rated primary school. The Tamar Valley railway line links Bere Alston to Plymouth in 20 minutes, with connections from there to London. The unspoilt surroundings of the Tamar Valley with its rolling hills, meandering rivers and ancient woodlands are ideally suited to those who enjoy walking, riding and water sports.

The market town of Tavistock is a 5 mile drive away and offers a variety of additional facilities including a number of supermarkets, The Wharf Cultural Centre, notable boutiques, delicatessens and the Pannier Market.

This charming mid terrace cottage maintains much of it's original features such as tongue and groove latch doors, beams, multi-fuel stoves set into hearths with cloam ovens. It has been extended by the present owner to add a third bedroom, an en suite and an impressive 14' high entrance hallway with elevated windows.

The property benefits from an electric heating system and is double glazed throughout. A particular feature of the cottage is it's extensive south-westerly facing garden with views and access to the waterside hamlet of Weir Quay and the river.
