Hartwell (farmhouse in W. Devon with pool)

1 of 28
Cottage -
5 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Tavistock, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
Hartwell is a former farmhouse which was built in the 19th century close to the village of Sydenham Damerel just 12 minutes from the historic town of Tavistock. Tucked away in the heart of the Tamar Valley, this attractive part of the Devon countryside is officially an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.' The house has modern facilities (including wifi, bluray, and a pool!) but retains its traditional feel, including Inglenook fireplace, original slate flagstones and old wooden floors. There's a large well equipped kitchen containing a Rayburn, and two living rooms each with a cosy wood burner. Furniture is mostly antique or older style, in keeping with the overall feel of the house. Comfortably sleeping 10 people, the bedrooms are as follows:

Bedroom 1 - (Double) Kingsize four-poster bed,
Bedroom 2 - (Twin) 2 single beds,...

About the neighbourhood
And there's a 15th Century pub down the hill which used to be frequented by Charles I while on his way to visit his mistress at Cotehele!

Near by, Tavistock is an attractive and historic rural town with many shops and fantastic restaurants. There is an eclectic mix of local independent shops and eateries as well as a few well known national stores. But a real highlight is the wonderful Pannier Market which has been in existence since the 12th century and changes many of its stalls every day.

A short trip in the car takes you to Dartmoor (Devon) in one direction or Bodmin (Cornwall) in the other, and we're equidistant from the North and South Cornwall/Devon coasts, making Hartwell an ideal base from which to explore the West Country.
