Runnaford Cottages lie within the picturesque valley hamlet of Combe on Dartmoor, some three miles north-west of the town of Buckfastleigh.

There is superb walking and riding country literally on the doorstep and you can easily head out to the open moor by following the nearby River Mardle upstream. The village of Scorriton is a few minutes along the lane and has a pub and meeting hall. Holne village (5 minutes by car) has a well stocked community shop, church and village meeting hall.

Whilst undoubtedly occupying a rural setting, Combe is readily accessible being just ten minutes drive from the A38 at Dartbridge, Buckfastleigh which connects the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter with the national motorway network beyond.

This period cottage is at the end of a small row and its cosy interior would benefit from some general refurbishment.

Directly opposite the cottage, on the lower side of the lane, is a two-storey traditional stone barn/outbuilding. This has lots of potential as a home office, holiday let, studio or workshop - subject to the required consents.

Adjacent to the stone building is a pull-in parking space for one car plus a small attractive rose-garden which overlooks the River Mardle.
