SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION In an elevated position with pleasant views extending over Tavistock town towards Rix Hill in the distance, the property is located within easy and convenient walking distance of Tavistock town centre and the amenities therein.

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.

This much improved, mid terrace, three bedroom Duke of Bedford cottage offers surprisingly spacious accommodation arranged over two floors and still retains a wealth of original charm and character.

The cottage has been extended on the first floor to create a large master bedroom, alongside two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the ground floor, there is a cosy sitting room with woodburning stove, a dining room/snug and a large family sized dining kitchen.

Gas fired central heating has been installed. Although much altered and improved, the cottage retains some attractive period features and has a warm and welcoming feel about it. 

Outside, there are gardens to the front and rear, an enclosed courtyard with outbuilding and some pleasant views extending over Tavistock town towards Rix Hill in the distance.
