Hidden away in a woodland clearing in the idyllic grounds of a private country house, Groom's Cottage is in an oasis of complete peace on the south east edge of Dartmoor National Park.
A particular bonus for guests is that game fishing (salmon and sea trout) can be arranged on a private, productive and highly regarded stretch of the River Dart, which passes through the grounds. The outstandingly beautiful area of woodland and riverbank (an SSSI) below the cottages is also available for guests to walk and picnic in - a rare privilege.
Groom's Cottage is very well equipped with a cosy sitting room, bright, comfortable bedrooms and an attractive private garden area.
Entrance into small hallway. Sitting room with woodburner. Dining room with circular table, and archway to fully fitted kitchen. Upstairs: 3 bedrooms - twin bedroom with en suite bathroom, master bedroom with double bed and smaller third bedroom for single occupancy. Bathroom with bath, two basins and separate shower cubicle, accessible directly from master bedroom and from third bedroom via a lobby and a separate door.
Outside there is a small terrace immediately in front of the cottage and a further grassed garden area just beyond the driveway.
