Beacon Cottages comprises two small rows of cottages (six in total) in a beautiful sylvan setting just below the open moor, with direct nearby access to Buckland Beacon.

The immediate area abounds in outstanding walking country and contains some of the most spectacular landscapes Dartmoor has to offer.

Buckland-in-the-Moor is a picturesque Dartmoor village located roughly three miles north west of Ashburton, where there is a good selection of shops and amenities. Ashburton is also where the A38 Expressway which provides quick and easy access to the two Devon cities of Exeter and Plymouth can be accessed.

3 Beacon Cottages is an end cottage , faced with granite stone and originally constructed as workers’ cottages. It has been tastefully updated over the years but would benefit from some improvement in places.

The accommodation benefits from lots of natural light, wood/tiled floors and a fine granite fireplace with wood burner.

Virtually all the rooms have wonderful views across the gardens, the stunning wooded valley and high moor hills on the horizon.

A decked seating terrace runs across the rear of the property, with direct access from both the living room and the dining area, and is a space for outdoor entertaining and relaxation. Timber steps drop down to a good sized hillside garden and there is a second garden area beyond the drive at the rear of the building.

The property is now offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain.
