A semi-detached converted stone barn, originally built more than 200 years ago and standing in a rural position on the owners' non-working farm near the tiny village of Zeal Monachorum, near Crediton. This stunning cottage is presented to a high standard, and has fabulous views of the Devon countryside around the farm, where there are ponies and a well-stocked fishing lake.
Julia and Martin have a quality hideaway here, alongside the main house, but entirely separate, this little cottage is perfect for two. With a king size bed under oak beams and beautiful country garden plus small lake, this has to be one of my top recommendations for a romantic honeymoon on Dartmoor. The pleasant shower room is on the ground floor as the bedroom takes up most of the space up aloft. The kitchen is super too. I love it. Close enough for a steam train ride on the South Devon Railway.
