Eden Cottage is attractively positioned in the heart of the peaceful village of Holne within Dartmoor National Park, surrounded by breath taking countryside. The village has a shop/ tea rooms, traditional country pub, meeting hall and church.

The dramatic landscape and wide open spaces of the moor are within walking distance and form a scenic backdrop to the village. Whilst enjoying the many benefits of rural living, Holne is very accessible, with the A38 (for Exeter and Plymouth) little more than a ten minute drive, as is the popular town of Ashburton where there is a very good range of shops and facilities.The larger towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot take just twenty minutes by car and each have mainline railway stations.

Eden Cottage is a characterful Grade II listed cottage, part of a small row of traditional village cottages dating from the eighteenth century. The well presented accommodation includes a spacious living-dining room with recently installed wood-burner/oven by Dean Forge and solid oak flooring. A stylish modern kitchen has integrated appliances and under-floor heating, whilst the first floor has original wide floor boards in the two bedrooms and a classic white bathroom suite. There is oil-fired central heating with a modern boiler and LED ceiling lights to several rooms. We understand Broadband Fibre 1 direct to the property has recently been installed.

Outside, there is a small enclosed, pretty front garden and a much larger rear garden which is attractively laid out with lawns, numerous shrubs and plenty of seating areas and growing areas. There is a parking area for at least two vehicles and an old stone pig hut building and former outside WC.

DIRECTIONS From Ashburton, take the road signposted for the River Dart Country Park and proceed for approximately 2.5 miles. Take the left hand turning signposted for Holne. Continue along this road and follow the signs for the village centre. On reaching the crossroads turn right and Eden Cottage, The Village will be found on the right hand side.
