Full description


Brook Cottage occupies a truly lovely position just outside the sought after village of North Bovey, within Dartmoor National Park. The village is centred around a traditional green with clusters of thatched cottages, an ancient church, village hall and public house - 'The Ring of Bells'. The immediate surrounding area provides beautiful walking and riding country with picturesque woodlands, rivers and the open moor itself. The East Dartmoor town of Moretonhampstead is about two miles and provides a good range of everyday shops and facilities whilst the slightly larger towns of Ashburton and Bovey Tracey are within striking distance. The cathedral city of Exeter and the M5 motorway link is about fifteen miles.

Brook Cottage was converted during the 1990's from a traditional stone building (date-stone 1893) forming part of Aller Mill and is set to the rear of a most attractive courtyard, away from any through traffic. The accommodation offers generously proportioned rooms with plenty of windows providing a lots natural light and is presented in good order throughout. There are double glazed windows in wood frames and propane gas fired heating from a modern replacement boiler. The gardens can be accessed form the first floor level with secluded seating area, steps up to a raised lawn with good views over surrounding wooded hillsides and access through to the amenity paddock from where there are some really lovely open views. Brook Cottage presents an opportunity to acquire a most comfortable home on Dartmoor with excellent internal and external space in a private and peaceful courtyard setting.

Approximately 1.5 acres total plot size, as measured on pro map.
