Located in a quiet square in the pretty village of Drewsteignton on the northern edge of Dartmoor, Primrose Cottage is a three hundred year old Grade 2 listed thatched, detached cottage full of character and charm. It is a perfect spot from which to explore all that Dartmoor has to offer but also only 40 minutes from the coast and half an hour away from the lively city of Exeter.
Primrose Cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms - a large double with double aspect windows and a comfortable twin. The smart white fitted bathroom also has a shower over bath for complete flexibility.
There are two sitting rooms - a traditional double aspect room (low beams) with inglenook fireplace, television, DVD player and small library and a second room, well stocked with games and puzzles for all ages.
The newly refurbished kitchen/diner is exceptionally well equipped with a new electric two oven AGA with hot plate and induction hob, an additional smart oven and microwave, large integrated fridge freezer, washer/drier and dishwasher. The dining table seats four comfortably and Emma Bridgewater china compliments the room perfectly.
Outside, a small enclosed front courtyard garden has a table and chairs for al fresco dining or morning coffee from where to watch the world go by. Parking is close by the property in a quiet lane.
Drewsteignton is an exceptionally pretty village with a Grade 1 listed 15th and 16th century Church, pub, well stocked village shop and post office and a popular fine dining restaurant. There are many walks from the doorstep and maps are provided for guests to plan their next venture. The National Trust property of Castle Drogo (the last castle to have been built in England) is a twenty minute walk or five minute drive away, as is Fingle Bridge, an ancient Packhorse Bridge over the River Teign, a perfect spot for a picnic, paddling in the river or perhaps playing Poohsticks. The open moor is a twenty minute drive from where guests can explore the wild, rugged beauty of this ancient land.
The small town of Chagford is a short drive away. A former ancient stanary town, Chagford has a small supermarket, dairy, wine shop and ironmongers together with several pubs and cafes and other independent shops. Chagford also has an open air swimming pool, open from May to September. Further afield, Okehampton has a cinema and several major supermarkets and Exeter has everything one would expect from a major regional city with its famous Cathedral, art gallery, museums and university with excellent sports facilities.
All linen and towels (except for beach towels) are provided as well as a starter pack of toiletries, dishwasher and laundry products etc.
A travel cot (please bring your own linen) and high chair are available on request.
Up to two well behaved, small/medium sized dogs are welcome at a small additional charge.
