An early Victorian semi-detached cottage, believed to date from1850 and rich in architectural detail set in a delightful part walled garden approaching 200' in this idyllic location footsteps from open moorland.

Named in celebration of its sunny aspect, this exceptional cottage, is thought to have been the home, out of town, of merchant traders in Tavistock who took advantage of the former railway line from Whitchurch into town - commuting the Victorian way !

Evidence of the quality of construction is immediate, the detail in the roof construction especially the finails and bargeboards together with the curving stone garden wall and ornate pedestrian gates show the craftsmanship of the era which carries on through the interior of the cottage.

Present day works have kept the essence of the cottage intact. Of particular merit is the handcrafted bespoke kitchen which picks up on the detail in the original joinery and a refurbished gas fired 'Aga' takes pride of place. Over the past fifteen years many essential works have been carried out including a new roof and the installation, 3 years ago, of a new mains gas fired central heating boiler.


Tucked beneath Whitchurch Down, just outside the Dartmoor National Park, off a lane leading only to the dozen or so dwellings in this little known hamlet.

This is considered to be one of West Devon's most idyllic and highly sought after locations, footsteps from open moorland and yet within a few minutes walk  to local amenities.
