Named after the river running below, Walkham has a garden with uninterrupted views across the valley with its fields and woodland, to the rise of Dartmoor beyond.
Inside you will be delighted with the space and comfort of this lovely property. Oak and slate flooring runs throughout; the sitting-area with its exposed beams and high ceilings has a large soft sofa flanking a cosy wood-burner.
The dining-area has a large dining-table, seating up to 10, and French windows opening onto the garden. There is a fully equipped contemporary kitchen-area and two beautifully furnished bedrooms, both of which have en suites – one with a walk-in shower, the other with a bath and a separate rainfall shower.
Down a quiet narrow lane edged with ancient stone walls and lichen-covered trees, Walkham Valley Cottages offer a really lovely retreat. The owners, who run a smallholding from the main farmhouse, have gone all out to provide the most gorgeous and stylish holiday cottages. High quality beds, sumptuous linens, oak and slate flooring with under-floor heating throughout, stunning bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens – every comfort has been borne in mind to ensure that you have a truly luxurious stay.
The cottages are all quite separate from one another with their own private garden areas. You also have access to 13 acres of fields and orchards, assuming you are happy to share them with the rare breed Dartmoor Whiteface sheep that call it home. The breathtaking beauty of Dartmoor is all around you. So whatever your preference, sitting back in the garden with a glass of wine in hand and relaxing, off-road cycling, trekking on horseback across the moors, walking, golfing or fishing, all is close by.
