1 Knowle Cottage is a semi-detached grade 2 listed property which was extended at some stage to create a comfortable home. The day-to-day entrance leads into the kitchen dining room which is fitted with country style kitchen, and with space for a sofa and dining table. From the kitchen there is a door into the main entrance hallway which gives access to a cloakroom/WC and a study with dual aspect windows. There is also a door into the spacious sitting room which features a lovely inglenook fireplace complete with original bread oven and a fitted gas fire. To the corner of the room there is a curved staircase leading to the first floor.

Upstairs you’ll find the landing with access to the bathroom, two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a single room.

The Bungalow is a detached property which was constructed by the current owners as ancillary accommodation. It offers spacious and bright accommodation comprising; two double bedrooms, kitchen, sitting/dining room, utility room and a shower room. It is a lovely property in its own right and would make a great rental property, holiday let or accommodation for family.

Step Outside

The land at the property totals just over 5 acres and is setup in sections but is all within one boundary and so all of the gardens and land can be accessed by the cottage or the bungalow.  With the River Teign along the rear boundary, this really is a special setting.

1 Knowle Cottage has a covered patio area which has plenty of space for outdoor furniture etc and has mature borders planted with established shrubs and bushes.  There is also a very pretty front garden which leads to the front door. A driveway runs from the road, past the cottage and then follows around to the land as well as to an additional gated access back onto the road.

The Bungalow has a large terrace which is accessed off the living room and bedroom, it’s a private and sunny spot and leads out on to a large grass area. There is also a small stream and a gateway into a secret garden, which is planted with a variety of mature trees.

The land also benefits from having a productive vegetable plot with greenhouse and soft fruit cages.  Next to this area there is a three-box stable block (with power and water) and grass area which is enclosed with post and rail fencing.

The driveway continues past the stables, and over a small bridge giving access into the large paddock area.  A metal gate on the far side opens into a large yard area where there is a two-storey barn, sizeable store shed, and tractor shed.


Trusham is a small, charming village with a church dating back to mid 13th century and a well-respected public house and restaurant (The
Cridford Inn) The city of Exeter is approximately 8 miles with access onto the M5 motorway, and also Exeter International airport. The ancient town of Chudleigh is a short drive providing most everyday needs.
