Believed to date from the mid Victorian period, this double-fronted cottage benefits from an attractive south westerly courtyard garden and rear aspect with fine river views over the Walkham valley.

Approached through a gate with ornate iron railings either side, the attractive façade is enhanced with carved bargeboards whilst the interior retains many characteristic of its period including fireplaces, wooden doors & panelling with exposed roof timbers. These combined with the good room proportions, wide window reveals and sunny aspect to form an utterly charming cottage.

The property has been well-maintained, re-roofing was undertaken about twenty five years ago and the more recent re-wiring and installation of installation of mains gas central heating – and wood burning stove.  A new kitchen  has been installed with the addition of the sun room, off which is a shower room & utility cupboard.

The outside space nicely complements the interior. In the front garden are shallow flower boarders and the rear garden is a delight, designed in 3 ‘rooms’ each providing an enchanting space, enhanced by a captivating view.



Located on the outskirts of the village yet only a short walk to the centre which has a variety of shops including Post Office, general stores and bakery.  The village also has 2 country pubs, a church and primary school. The village of Yelverton lies approximately one mile away, where there is a greater range of shopping facilities, restaurants, a health centre and dental surgery. The market town of Tavistock is four miles away, where secondary education – both state and public – is available. The city of Plymouth is approximately 11 miles to the south.
