In a hidden traffic-free setting within the small moorland community of Lowertown near Poundsgate, 1 Bachelors Hall is surrounded by the dramatic landscape of Dartmoor National Park, with 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, ironmongers, 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.

1 Bachelors Hall is a terraced property with characterful accommodation featuring low timbered ceilings, two fine fireplaces with wood-burners, and low-set cottage windows. It has a delightful garden which is accessed via a shared path and which enjoys views of neighbouring countryside. It also has a useful log store and a garage.
