This delightful cottage is situated within Old Liverton Village in a minor country lane with lovely walks on the doorstep.

It lies on the south-eastern corner of Dartmoor National Park and the rugged landscape of the open moor at Haytor Down is just a five minute drive or twenty minute walk away. Old Liverton Village has a village hall whilst nearby Liverton has a pub, post office/general stores and excellent primary school.

The town of Bovey Tracey (around two miles) offers a good range of everyday shops and amenities, and the larger market town of Newton Abbot, with its pedestrianised shopping centre and mainline railway station, is around six miles to the south.

The A38 at Drumbridges can be accessed within less than ten minutes and links the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter with the national motorway network beyond.

1 Thatch Cottages is a most appealing traditional Devon country cottage property with a picturesque thatch roof.

It has a spacious and characterful interior featuring beams, a splendid stone fireplace, cottage windows and irregular shaped rooms. At the rear of the property is a private level garden with an open sunny aspect.

The origins of the cottage are believed to probably date from around the mid 16th/17th Century with an early 19th Century addition and it would make a lovely permanent home, or as a second home is an ideal base from which to explore South Devon, the coast and Dartmoor.

From the Drumbridges roundabout on the A38 Expressway, take the Ilsington/Liverton exit and after just under half a mile, turn right signposted Old Liverton Village. After about a mile you reach the village, where you take a right turning after the village hall (marked unsuitable for long vehicles) and 1 Thatch Cottages will be seen on the right.
