A delightful four-bedroom Grade II listed cottage in a beautiful rural setting near Crediton

Meadowsweet Cottage is a charming period property that offers light-filled and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors.

The ground floor has a drawing room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, a skylight, a brick-built fireplace with a woodburning stove and French doors that open onto the garden. There is also a sitting room with a triple aspect allowing for a wealth of natural light and an open fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with modern Shaker-style units and integrated appliances. The ground floor also offers two well-proportioned bedrooms with one benefitting from an en suite cloakroom and a useful study which could also be used as an additional bedroom if required.
