In a tranquil spot, Fig Tree Cottage offers a haven to relax and recover from everyday life. Set in the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are 28 acres of fields to explore and you can meet the farm's Grey Face Dartmoor sheep, cattle, free-range chickens and ponies Princess and Poppy.
The largest of a terrace of three, this lovely barn conversion has its own patio and is bright and welcoming inside with some gorgeous period touches such as beautiful wooden beams and exposed stone walls. A warming wood-burner is tucked into the corner of the cosy sitting-room which also comes complete with a TV, DVD and CD player, meaning you'll be easily entertained in the evenings.
Next door you'll find the well-equipped kitchen, with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The beautiful wooden dining-table sits alongside a wall of gorgeous, exposed stone providing the perfect place for delicious family meals in the evenings. Downstairs you'll also find a handy cloakroom.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms to discover. Bedroom one houses a luxurious double bed and is kept light and bright thanks to the fabulous Velux window that sits between the exposed wooden beams that line the ceiling. This room also comes with a beautifully finished en suite shower-room where you'll find a modern shower perfect for refreshing yourself after a great night's sleep. Down the hall there are two delightful bedrooms that both house twin beds and are brilliant for adults and children alike. A family bathroom makes up the first floor accommodation.
Outside you'll find plenty of places to enjoy the gorgeous Devon sunshine with a beautiful courtyard housing the fantastic communal garden. Here you will find a beautiful log-burner and seating area, perfect for those summer evenings whilst the children play with the guests staying at neighbouring Horseshoe Cottage. Delightful seating also sits outside your front door, providing the perfect place to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining.
Next door is Horseshoe Cottage (2348) which is connected by a fully secured and soundproofed interconnecting door, that ensures you enjoy a private stay.
The farm is also close to the village of Milton Abbot should you need any groceries or fancy a bite to eat. Dartmoor is just down the road, and both north and south coasts are within easy driving distance as is the Eden Project. Nearby Tavistock has a bustling pannier market, interesting shops and a couple of good restaurants. Activities close by include canoeing, cycling and the latest craze of tree surfing.
