Nestled by the roadside within the small moorland community of Lower Town near Poundsgate, Tuley Cottage is surrounded by the beautiful and dramatic landscape of Dartmoor National Park, and the picturesque valley of The River Dart at Spitchwick is just down the lane.

There is stunning riding, walking and cycling country on the doorstep (as well as kayaking/rafting on the nearby Dart) yet the location is by no means remote and is just a short ten to fifteen minute drive of Ashburton and the A38 for Plymouth, Exeter and the motorway link beyond.

Poundsgate, a 20 minute walk over the fields, has a traditional pub, The Tavistock Inn, and a bus service runs to the primary school at nearby Widecombe where there is a church, two pubs and cafes/tea rooms.

Ashburton provides a great range of everyday shops such as a post office, butchers, delicatessen, bakers, fish deli, iron mongers, Co-op and Spar stores. It also has a choice of schools and many clubs and societies, plus a well supported community arts centre.

The larger towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot are each around a thirty minute drive and have comprehensive shopping centres and mainline railway stations with connection to London Paddington.

Tuley Cottage is a traditional Dartmoor building, built of granite beneath a slate roof. It has atmospheric accommodation with numerous characterful features including a fine granite fireplace in the living room and timbered ceiling. An oil-fired Rayburn range in the kitchen-breakfast room also heats the radiators and hot water.

Outside, there are good sized lawned gardens at the rear and to the side of the cottage where there is a small range of stone outhouses currently utilised as a workshop, two small stores and a gardener's WC. These offer potential for a home office/hobbies space, subject to any required consents.
