The Old Shepherd's self catering cottage is a lovely, light self catering cottage / barn conversion which sleeps up to five people. It is situated right on the edge of Dartmoor on a family run sheep farm and surrounded by woodland and open grazed farm land. It is also close to the beautiful River Erme and thirty minute drive from some spectacular South Hams estuarine beaches. The farm is secluded and peaceful; access is by Devon lanes but is only three miles from the A38 Devon Expressway. The closest town is Ivybridge with the city port Plymouth just twelve miles away. This comfortable, spacious and secluded dwelling consists of the main conservatory/ sitting/ eating room , largely glazed on two sides and looking out onto fields and woodland. This is an extrmely light and spacious room as are all the rooms in the cottage. Television, DVD and internet access. Mobile phone reception is limited (but okay in the adjoining field!). central heating is from the eco-friendly and self-sufficient wood burner. There is also a wood burner fire and electric options. Floors in the self catering cottage are of oak, pine or slate and some of the fittings are made from wood grown on the farm. One bedroom is on the ground floor with a double and single bed, wardrobe, cot, chairs etc. Access to this generously sized bedroom is from the conservatory up three steps. The other bedroom is upstairs, has a double bed, clothes storage, immersion heater, a hand basin and hanging space etc. A mezzanine opens from this room into the conservatory below. The south facing kitchen is fully equipped with an electric cooker, fridge/freezer, double sink, microwave and washing machine. The bathroom which has a slate floor has a bath/ shower, washbasin and heated towel rail. A large enclosed garden has a barbeque and garden furniture. The garden opens straight onto fields and is very quiet and secluded. There are lovely walks from the fields onto the surrounding farm and heavily wooded countryside by the nearby River Erme and access onto Dartmoor. There is generous parking space. We are sorry that we cannot have pets as we have our own very friendly working collies. The self catering cottage is usually let on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday but other dates by negotiation. Prices are all inclusive i.e. bedding, , electricity, firewood etc. Comments in the visitors book are universally enthusiastic: we aim to keep it that way. This self catering cottage has only just come back onto the holiday market having been temporarily let.
