Fields surround the garden behind; on balmy evenings, watch the sunset whilst you BBQ and stay out for some stargazing. Children will be happy here – slipping through the hedge to a playpark next door; there’s a football pitch and flat grass for cricket.
Pick up a picnic from the community farm shop in the next village and head up to Raddon Top for blow-away-the-cobwebs hikes and wide views over Dartmoor and Exmoor. Or spend the day discovering National Trust Knightshayes Court – a gothic country house with acres of gardens.
You’re next door to the owners’ house and with a bit of notice Diana is happy to cook for you – she’ll either deliver it or you can pile into her conservatory and have it there. She also leaves you homemade jams and gin plus a cake or scones; there’s space to chat if you like to cook.
