This wonderfully large, spacious house is set in the most peaceful and attractive setting, providing the ideal venue for that special occasion, or perhaps that long awaited family get-together. The Orchard has been thoughtfully furnished to offer style and comfort throughout, with the real 'wow!' being the beautiful fully enclosed garden. Fling open the patio doors and step out onto the large patio, which leads onto the lovingly maintained garden. This is the perfect space for relaxing in the sun whilst the children and the family dog(s) play safely within this lovely expanse of garden. The Owners have thought of everything and even offer a dog-sitting service (at cost); when night falls and temperatures drop, you have an amazing fire-pit to set alight, the most romantic setting possible for enjoying the stars, and each other's company of course!
Should it be adventure you desire, The Orchard is perfectly located to give you endless opportunities for country pursuits. Within striking distance, you have Dartmoor National park, the Tarka Trail, fishing on local lakes or pony trekking across the moors, there is something for all the family. Alternatively, the spectacular north coast is a straightforward drive away, and is home to the most stunning beaches such as Widemouth Bay and Bude; a must if you desire a sandy day out at the beach. The Orchard nestles in the beautiful little village of Exbourne which is home to its own charming pub and local shop, meaning you can park the car, unload and relax in the knowledge that you have everything you desire on your doorstep. Close by you have the market town of Okehampton which is home to many lovely cafes and ancient pubs. Okehampton is also home to the Museum of Dartmoor, which is always worth a visit, with or without your four-legged friend. Whatever the occasion, this property boasts the ideal all year round location. With endless attractions and activities to be found from every angle, this grand house is perfectly positioned and designed to offer you the most wonderful holiday.
