Full description

Runnaford Cottages lie within the picturesque valley hamlet of Combe on Dartmoor, some three miles north-west of the town of Buckfastleigh. There is superb walking and riding country literally on the doorstep and you can easily head out to the open moor by following the nearby River Mardle upstream. The village of Scorriton is a few minutes along the lane and has a pub and meeting hall. Holne village (5 minutes by car) has a well stocked shop and church.

Whilst undoubtedly occupying a rural setting, Combe is readily accessible being just ten minutes drive from the A38 at Dartbridge, Buckfastleigh which connects the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter with the national motorway network beyond.

Number one Runnaford Cottages is a characterful building believed to have origins dating back several centuries and converted to a dwelling sometime in the twentieth century.

It features an attractive living-dining room divided into two areas by a central timber staircase and with a stone fireplace with wood-burner in the living area and ceiling tenter-style hooks which are believed to have possibly come from the second-storey loft room from a time when the building was associated with the woollen cloth industry. The kitchen has an electric Aga set into a recess with cast-iron door still in situ from the original bake-house oven. Several of the rooms take in views over surrounding fields and countryside.

On the opposite side of the lane to the cottage lies a good sized grassed garden bounded by the River Mardle. There is parking for around four vehicles and a workshop with its own electricity supply.

From the A38 at Buckfastleigh turn north at the first roundabout and take the second exit towards Buckfast Abbey. Pass Buckfast Abbey on the right, continue to the top of the hill and turn right at Pound Cross. Proceed for approximately two miles and turn left at stone cross, signposted to Combe. Follow the lane down and around to the right and 3 Runnaford Cottages is located along this lane on the right hand side, before the stone bridge.
