Full description

Higher Cross enjoys a peaceful position within the Dartmoor village of Manaton, just beyond the village green and parish church in a quiet no-through road. Manaton has an active local community and a well supported parish hall hosts various activities including a weekly mobile post office and an out-clinic from Moretonhampstead GP surgery, as well as events throughout the year. There is a local pub, the Kestor Inn, which has a small shop and the village hosts a popular show and fair annually.

The village also has a tennis court and cricket pitch and school buses run to the primary schools in Moretonhampstead and Widecombe as well as South Dartmoor Academy.

Manaton is surrounded by scenic moorland landscapes and contains some of the best walking, cycling and riding country Dartmoor has to offer.

Higher Cross enjoys some wonderful views over picturesque moorland with Haytor on the horizon.

The original bungalow has been significantly re-modelled and upgraded over the years and now offers spacious accommodation featuring a 27' living room with wood-burner, modern kitchen and bathroom fittings and oil fired central heating. The windows have been replaced in recent years with attractive bespoke wood framed double glazing as have the exterior doors.

The garden lies on the south side where the previously mentioned views can be gained and the whole plot extends to approximately 0.61 of an acre, as measured on ProMap.

From Bovey Tracey, follow the Manaton Road for about four miles, passing Becky Falls car park on the left. On entering the village of Manaton go through the village, keeping on the main road, and after about one mile, turn right into The Green and take the narrow lane to the right. Follow the road around and take the first right into a minor lane (Ridge Road) where Higher Cross will be found as the fourth property on the right.
