Apple Loft Cottage is a charming converted stone barn sleeping two. Furnished with flair, the cottage offers quality accommodation for those looking to explore Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams area of Devon. It is set in four acres of grounds with the River Dart and South Devon Railway running behind the property. The cottage is located to the south of Dartmoor just one mile from the centre of the historic woollen town of Buckfastleigh with its quaint high street of shops, pubs and eateries. Buckfast Abbey, the South Devon Railway and Otter Sanctuary are all close by.

Furnished with flair, the cottage offers quality accommodation for those looking to explore Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams area of Devon. It is set in four acres of grounds with the River Dart and South Devon Railway running behind the property. The cottage is located to the south of Dartmoor just one mile from the centre of the historic woollen town of Buckfastleigh with its quaint high street of shops, pubs and eateries. Buckfast Abbey, the South Devon Railway and Otter Sanctuary are all close by. Whilst set in a quiet rural position the cottage is just minutes from the A38 which provides easy access to Dartmoor and the South Hams area of Devon. The towns of Ashburton and Totnes are less than six miles away and the coastal towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe an easy 40 minute drive . The cottage consists of a lounge/dining area with a high vaulted beamed ceiling, an oak floor and a mix of antique and contemporary furniture and tasteful soft furnishings. The Shaker style kitchen is well equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dish-washer and microwave, together with everything that you need to rustle up a meal. Downstairs, the contemporary shower-room, has a powerful shower and free-standing wash basin. Upstairs, the king-size bed nestles under the beamed ceiling and is complemented by antique pine furniture. Crisp cotton bed-linen and bathrobes add a touch of luxury here. There is gas fired central heating throughout. Outside, there is a small walled courtyard with views to the pond and is set within the 4 acre gardens and grounds of this former farmhouse. Whilst the cottage is attached to the owners AA '4Star Gold' trated Bed and Breakfast establishment, it is still very separate from the main house and the owners are very conscious of guests' privacy. Locally there are plenty of characterful pubs and restaurants serving great food - much of it locally sourced. Buckfastleigh with its quaint high street of shops, pubs and eateries is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. More

Buckfastleigh is situated mid way between Exeter and Plymouth on the south side of the Dartmoor National Park. It sits just of the A38 at one of the main entrance routes to the South Hams area of South Devon.

Dartmoor National Park is the largest area of open country in England covering some 368 square miles. It is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit at any time of the year, with wide expanses of open moorland, wooded gorges and tumbling rocky rivers.Buckfast Abbey – A modern Benedictine Abbey with wonderful stained glass windows and gardens.
