SITUATION Tucked away in a very quiet and peaceful corner, yet close to the heart of the village and enjoying splendid views across the surrounding countryside.

Milton Abbot is a small but attractive village located on the Devon/Cornwall border and equidistant from the popular market towns of Tavistock and Launceston. The village has a well regarded county primary school.  

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

DESCRIPTION A charming and attractive end terrace Grade II Listed character cottage, constructed in the early Twentieth Century using locally sourced Hurdwick stone under a pitched delabole slate roof. The property retains a wealth of original character and charm, and boasts Sir Edwin Lutyens trademark high ceilings and well proportioned double aspect rooms.
