The Property
Twizzle Tree Cottage offers a unique opportunity to acquire a secret hideaway in a spectacular forest setting. The property, which sits in approximately 2.25 acres, was originally part of what was known as Great Rock Mine which dates back to the 1900's. The mine was one of the last metal mines in Devon and was open until 1969. The inert micaceous haematite mined here still sparkles in the soil and the valley has many mining relics, there has even been a book published about it. Of particular note within the grounds are two mine entrances, one of which can be safely explored. Today the property is offered to a good standard throughout and makes a very comfortable home. An ideal setting for nature lovers or artistic pursuits.

The property is of timber frame construction with a shiplap exterior cladding. The current owners have made much improvement to the property including re-cladding and an upgraded heating system. The surrounding garden and wooded areas have also benefited from regular upkeep and landscaping.

A particular feature of the property is the lovely, spacious living room which has a stone fireplace with wood burner and full length bi-folding doors leading out onto the decked terrace. This room leads through to two double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. This attractive bathroom enjoys twin sinks, a walk-in shower, bath tub set within a bay window.

The property is located in a private tucked away position on the edge of Hennock. The small village of Hennock is situated on the south side of the beautiful Teign Valley and is especially renowned for its spectacular views over the Teign Valley. The village is on the eastern edge of Dartmoor National Park and within it is a church, pub, primary school and village hall. nearby is the popular moorland town of Bovey Tracey, where there is a full selection of local shopping and other amenities. Also, close by, is the Teign Valley Golf Club and Stover School for private education.

Dartmoor itself is renowned for its stunning scenery, with its granite tors, heather-clad moorland and wooded valleys, bisected by rushing streams and rivers and there are many and varied opportunities locally for walking, There is very easy access from Hennock on to the A38 dual carriageway, leading to both Plymouth and Exeter. There is also a railway station at Newton Abbot, with mainline connections to Exeter and London.


The property is accessed via a shared private track which leads down into the valley. The bungalow sits on a plateau surrounded by private garden and areas of woodland. This offers a lovely position to enjoy the surrounding countryside which can be accessed directly from the garden. The whole plot is of approximately 2.25 acres and includes a large parking area, a lawned garden with pond and areas of woodland. There are also useful two outbuildings currently used as studios / workshops and two sizeable woodstores.
