Moorcroft occupies a truly remarkable setting within Dartmoor National Park at the end of a public bridle path just below Haytor, adjoining the open moor itself.

There is spectacular walking and riding country literally on the doorstep. Haytor Vale has an excellent public house and restaurant, The Rock Inn, whilst the nearby village of Ilsington has a community store, primary school, church, village hall, public house and country house hotel with fitness centre.The towns of Bovey Tracey (around 5 miles) and Ashburton (around 7 miles) each offer a good range of everyday shops and amenities, whilst the larger market town of Newton Abbot lies around 8 miles to the south. The A38 at Drumbridges, for Exeter and Plymouth, is about ten minutes by car.

Moorcroft is estimated to have been originally built in the 1920’s/30’s of timber frame construction, and was enlarged with a blockwork extension around 20 to 25 or so years ago. In more recent times a full LPG central heating system has been installed along with a smart modern kitchen and contemporary entrance door with side window and good quality powder-coated aluminium sliding doors along the conservatory-sun room.

It sits nicely in its recently landscaped plot, which is a typical Dartmoor garden with granite boulders, many colourful shrubs and trees, mixed hedgerow boundaries and its own pedestrian gate opening directly onto the moor. There are smart slate-paved patio terraces positioned to take advantage of the sun throughout the day and the views of the adjacent moor.

The accommodation has potential for re-modelling and possible enlargement (subject to any required consents) and there is a large roof space divided into two distinct areas.

The gated drive provides plenty of parking, and there is a modern block-built detached garage and workshop plus charging point for an electic vehicle.

Directions: On approaching Haytor via the B3587 (Bovey Tracey/Widecombe road) turn down over the cattle grid towards Haytor/Ilsington. After 0.7 of a mile you will reach Smokey Cross. Turn right here into the public bridle path and Moorcroft will be found at the very end, on the left.
