Full description

This is a rare opportunity to live in what has been termed "the loveliest place in the world". 'Wild Goose House' is a beautiful large Edwardian terrace cottage with 3 bedrooms providing accommodation to a good specification including a log burning stove. It is quietly secluded within a tranquil setting overlooking the River Dart, close to Agatha Christie's former home, Greenway House, yet within easy access of Torbay only 2 miles from Paignton, 3 miles from Brixham and 10 miles from Torquay. There is off road parking for 2 cars, lawned gardens, and a terrace with views down the River Dart to Dartmouth. A gardener is included within the rental.

Wild Goose House is a 3 bedroom Edwardian terrace cottage tucked away near the tranquil village of Galmpton. Located at the head of a wooded valley, high above the picturesque River Dart, it is a haven of peace and serenity yet still within striking distance of the lively English Riviera coastline.

Take advantage of the exterior by dining al fresco on the patio area or stroll across the lawn garden towards the terrace, from which there are views down through the valley to Dartmouth. From here you can take in the nostalgic site of the majestic steam train crossing the nearby viaduct on-route to Dartmouth.

The property is situated beside the recently restored Greenway Estate, once owned by renowned crime novelist Agatha Christie, which is now a popular visitor attraction managed by the National Trust.

The village of Galmpton is a scenic walk along the lanes where you will find the traditional Manor Inn serving wholesome local produce. Alternatively take the foot ferry across the river to Dittisham and enjoy a light snack beside the river whilst watching the world go by. A village shop is close by.

From the property there are a variety of walking and cycling trails just waiting to be explored and showcasing the rural delights of this picturesque region. If the coast is your preferred option then Torbay offers 22 miles of coastline with an array of attractions, events and activities on offer all year round.

With the steam railway running close to the property take a day trip down to Kingswear and across the river to Dartmouth, home of the Britannia Royal Naval College and gateway to the rural charms of the South Hams area.

Living Room - Spacious, stylish living room with elegant furnishings and a feature fireplace with log burner. French windows give access to the pretty gardens with patio and sun terrace. Furnished with three seater sofa and three armchairs. Large wooden dining table with six chairs.
