Property code: 77877

This fabulous property has been lovingly renovated and refurbished with oak beams, inglenook fireplaces and exposed stonework, and is perfectly placed from which to explore the whole of Devon.

The immediate area has much to offer including the magical 30-metre-high Whitelady Waterfall, and here you can walk through the gorge to Lydford village which offers a traditional Devon inn. You will also be perfectly placed to explore the whole of Dartmoor National Park, 'England’s last wilderness' teaming with myths, legends and mystery, on foot, bike or horseback - discover amazing far-reaching views, rugged tors to climb and wildlife aplenty. Just 8 miles away, Roadford lake is the South West’s largest lake for water sports and offers brown trout angling too. Other attractions accessible from here include the historic naval city of Plymouth where you can take a tour of the oldest gin factory in the UK and wander around the ever popular Barbican and Hoe, plus Buckland Abbey, Dartmoor Prison and Morwellham Quay.

Step inside this stunning property where first you'll find a spacious entrance hall with a beautiful flagstone floor which leads through to the ground floor accommodation. The furthest room is the fabulous lounge which overlooks the garden and this boasts comfortable sofas arranged around an original inglenook fireplace with a warming wood burner; and offers a perfect place to relax after a day exploring. There is also a second less formal lounge, also offering the lovely feature of a wood burner, and this includes a TV/DVD. Located next to the lounges is the perfectly presented dining room, boasting another gorgeous flagstone floor and also a DAB radio/iPod dock, and here is the perfect venue to gather everyone for a relaxed meal in the evening. From here, enter the superb kitchen, which is a keen cook's dream and includes a further dining area in the shape of a breakfast bar alongside a great selection of appliances including an AGA, double electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, separate wine cooler and also a dishwasher. Completing the offering on the ground floor, you will then discover the first of the stunning bedrooms: a twin room with a TV, French doors to outside, and an en-suite shower room with WC. Located in the en-suite is a useful utility cupboard with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Venturing up the stairs and onto the split-level first floor, you will find yourself on an impressively spacious galleried landing with a chair and selection of books, giving access to the rest of the bedrooms. All presented in a fabulous contemporary yet in keeping style, these bedrooms firstly include two king-size bedrooms, both boasting a TV and an en-suite shower room with WC. There are also three twin bedrooms, two of which include a TV and one of which boasts an additional day bed which can be used to accommodate an extra guest, complete the sleeping accommodation. A lovely family bathroom with shower over bath and WC is the final room inside the property.

Outside, you will then discover a large garden waiting to be enjoyed and this includes a lawn with a croquet area, gravelled patio area, garden furniture and a fire pit with BBQ grill. It's the perfect place to dine alfresco during warm weather. The garden also boasts the fabulous feature of a hot tub, in which you can enjoy a dip after a moorland walk. In the barn (lit but unheated) enjoy a game of table tennis or pool.  Ask about hiring a couple of pizza ovens for the ultimate in alfresco cooking.  Ample private off-road parking is provided on the driveway.

The house is very well stocked. We had the best time and there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The best part for us was the location - being able to walk out into Lydford gorge to see the Whitelady waterfall was just magical and we did this several times. The site is sometimes closed if it is very windy and rainy or for tree maintenaRead morence. The house is an ideal base to explore Dartmoor and we had a very special family holiday here. The hot tub was a bonus. Highly recommend. Hide

A wonderful roomy house equipped with everything you need. The garden was wonderful for two energetic boys to kick a ball around safely and the games room a real bonus when it was wet. The hot tub was especially welcome at the end of an active day. The location next to the entrance to Lydford Gorge was perfect.
