This 300-year-old, granite, thatched Devon longhouse in the Dartmoor National Park, is surrounded by ancient woodland and rolling hills. To the front is a large, south-facing lawned garden with table and chairs - a wonderful place for stargazing at night - enclosed by a sturdy stone wall displaying long-unused bee boles. The property has many original features and a wood-burning stove, but has also been updated for today’s lifestyle; it is spacious and is in an ideal location for families and friends to get together for a holiday or a celebration. Moretonhampstead is a friendly, busy, ‘gateway-to-Dartmoor’ village with shops, good food pubs, church and an outdoor swimming pool. It has good walks locally and has reservoir/river fishing close by. It is the ideal base to explore some of Britain’s most spectacular and beautiful countryside. For the active, Moretonhampstead boasts a surprising range of sporting facilities and the great expanse of Dartmoor presents any rambler with unlimited options. No part of the National Park is more than a one hour’s drive away. For those with other interests, there is the historic naval city of Plymouth, Devon’s Roman capital; Exeter with its magnificent cathedral; the many famous coastal resorts including Torbay, - all accessible within an hour. Set alongside the River Teign on the western edge of Dartmoor, Dunsford Nature Reserve offers wildlife, large areas of oak woodland glades, bracken-covered valley slopes, exposed rocky outcrops and the River Teign.
