FORGE COTTAGE occupies a lovely setting within the hamlet of Lower Ashton, surrounded by the wooded hillsides and fields that form the valley of the nearby river Teign.

Lower Ashton has a renowned public house and restaurant, “The Manor Inn”, post office/stores and an active local community. There are a number of nearby villages including Christow, Bridford and Doddiscombsleigh, whilst the Teign Valley Road provides easy access to the town of Chudleigh and the A38 Expressway.

The cathedral city of Exeter and the M5 motorway link is around 20 minutes by car, and Lower Ashton lies just outside the spectacular landscape of Dartmoor National Park.

FORGE COTTAGE is a Grade II Listed detached property believed to date back in parts to the 17th century, formerly being two cottages.

Beneath its newly thatched roof lies a characterful and spacious interior, with exposed timbering, a stone fireplace with a bread oven, and cottage windows with deep sills.

There is a modern Shaker-style kitchen, white bathroom suites and modern electric radiators strategically placed throughout the accommodation.

The garden provides a very pleasant setting for the cottage and contains many fine specimen shrubs and trees, as well as growing areas and a view across the valley between the trees.

From the A38 Expressway take the Station Hill exit at Chudleigh and join the B3193 Teign Valley Road. After 4 miles take a right hand turning at the crossroads towards Ashton and proceed over the bridge. Forge Cottage will be found after a few hundred yards on the left.
