Thatched bolthole in idyllic surroundings with period features & garden stream
Featured in Interiors magazine, Brooks Cottage, Dunsford is a charming thatched cottage set in beautiful grounds in rural tranquility. The comfortably furnished sitting room has an open fire and beamed ceiling with ample light despite the thick walls. The period features continue in the dining room and upstairs in two double bedrooms with two bathrooms, one ensuite. There's a country kitchen with full range of appliances including an Aga. The lawned garden blends into the surrounding countryside.
Order organic chicken, sausages and more from the farm next door and savour delicious Devon fare dining in the peaceful garden, listening to the nearby stream.
Brooks Cottage, Dunsford adjoins the historic Fulford Estate on the edge of Dartmoor National Park for letterboxing (like geocaching), walking and wildlife. Despite the peaceful and remote location, it is just two miles from Cheriton Bishop with its Old Thatch Inn and 12 miles from the cultural delights of Exeter. Explore the cathedral, shops and Rougemont Castle Gardens, hire a boat on the River Exe, visit the Royal Albert Memorial Museum or spend an evening at Northcott Theatre. Topsham is known for its boating, gastropubs and food shops. For beaches, head to Dawlish Warren (21 miles) or Teignmouth with its pier and promenade.
