LOCATION Lustleigh is often described as one of the prettiest villages on Dartmoor, with beautiful thatched cottages and winding lanes. St. John's church and The Cleave, a popular pub set in a 15th-century thatched building, are at the very heart of the village. There is also a superb general store and post office known as The Dairy, a tea room, village hall, preschool and a community orchard with a playground. The village, situated in the heart of the Wrey Valley, has long been a popular hot spot for walkers and those who are seeking a quintessentially British village.

Within a 15-minute drive are the local market towns of Bovey Tracey and Moretonhamsptead for daily essentials. With its antique shops, cafes, artisan bakery and award-winning fishmongers, Ashburton is also close at hand. Historic market towns of Chagford and Totnes are a 20 and 40-minute drive, respectively, both with a range of independent shops, stores and markets.

Despite its rural position, Lustleigh is readily reached by road. The A38, also known as the Devon Expressway, is a short drive away and provides good access to Exeter in addition to connecting to the A30 and the M5. Newton Abbot is situated on the Great Western railway offering access to London Paddington with a journey time of just over two and a half hours, calling at Reading, Taunton and Exeter. There is also a regular service to Bristol. 

SERVICES Oil fired central heating. Mains electric, water and drainage. 

VENDORS OPINION Pethybridge Farmhouse dates back six (or more) centuries, but has been regularly updated and looked after and has an attractive mix of comfort and interest. The thick walls double as heat preservers, while coloured windows bring pretty sunlight. Whilst my modern kitchen and bathroom equipment makes life easier.

Outside there is a variety of plants and trees, including apples and pears. Further away, but only a short walk, are the village shop, post office. children's playground, church and pub, while a similar distance the other way is the path to local woodlands and Dartmoor. Only a few miles away, one can easily get to schools, railways, doctors and every other necessity.

So, come to a friendly community in a beautiful setting, which has looked after me and my children for 25 years. We will be sad to leave a warm community, but need closer access to facilities, now that I am not able to drive."
