The patio + well-kept private garden lead straight down to the woods and lake...
...So why not go for a row on the lake on a peaceful summer evening? The quiet is magical.
The spacious open-plan ground floor layout gives Medley's Cottage a luxurious modern feel.
The stunning kitchen next to the dining area has every mod con. With views to the lake.
We've aimed to provide an elegant and relaxing dining ambience to do justice to your cooking.
Relax in the comfortable lounge; with wood burner, 42 inch HDTV and French windows out to the patio.
The window seat is a nice place to curl up with a book.
On a warm summer evening the patio is an inviting place to dine.
Each spacious bedroom features a king-sized bed. This one in bedroom 1 can divide to form a twin.
Both bedrooms have their own modern, luxury, en-suite shower room. This is the one for Bedroom 1.
Here's the second bedroom, complete with a comfortable, super king size bed.
Bedroom 2 also has a modern en-suite shower room.
Every window from the rear of Medley's Cottage has stunning views over the lake and woods.
The summer house by the lake. One guest called it 'a magic place'.
You're welcome to use the summer house, perhaps for a meal, or to relax and take in the view.
Carp bask in the lake's warm water on a sunny summer's evening.
The flower-filled gardens with far reaching views are all yours to explore and enjoy.
There is an extensive network of woodland paths, with new views at every turn.
The seat by the lake. A wonderful relaxing place to read the newspaper or a book.
Stunning wild orchids and foxgloves spring up in the meadow from time to time.
A wild, white and majestic stag stands for his portrait in a field that forms part of the 18 acres.
Two of our guests were married while on holiday and wanted their photos  taken in the gardens.
The front of Medley's Cottage is a delightful sun trap.
The entrance to Lower Winsford Farm where you'll find Medley's Cottage, Parking is straight ahead

Beaworthy, Devon, England
Medley's Cottage is the perfect getaway for a family of four, or two couples, wishing for the peace, quiet and clean air of deep Devon countryside.

Found down an unmade lane, Medley's Cottage is a recent conversion of a barn that once belonged to a nearby stately home. With central heating, heat-recovery ventilation, solar hot water + electricity, you'll be warm and cosy in this beautifully-appointed dwelling. Note that there are no 'hidden extras': the price is all-inclusive.

Upstairs are 2 spacious bedrooms, one with a king-sized double bed, the other with your choice of either twin beds or—by zipping and linking—a super king-sized double. Both bedrooms have delightful en-suites with large showers and windows overlooking the garden and lake. Downstairs is a modern, large, luxurious and well-equipped open plan kitch...

Just back from a great week at Medleys Cottage. We were two couples holidaying together and Medleys Cottage must be the best we have found. We loved the huge garden and the Summerhouse at the edge of the lake. The cottage was equipped with everything...More

About the neighbourhood
Medleys Cottage nestles in Beaworthy, amongst the most sparsely-populated area in the region—no rush hour here—equidistant between the rolling moorland of Dartmoor (15 mins*) and the great beaches of the North Devon and Cornish coast, famed for its delightful fishing villages, cliff walks and sandy surfing beaches (nearest, 25mins). On the doorstep we have Winsford Walled Garden (a 1 minute walk); Halwill Nature reserve (3 mins); the North Devon Alpaca Park (9 mins); and Cookworthy Forest with its cycle network (7 mins).

Dark skies are guaranteed as the nearest city is 45 miles away; youll be stunned by what you can see from the patio and garden, particularly on clear autumn and winter evenings (if you dont own a pair, why not buy or borrow a pair of binoculars or telescope to bring with...
