An exceptionally pretty Grade II Listed house with a converted outbuilding and an outdoor pool.

Dating from the 17th century, or even earlier in parts, Rose Cottage is an exceptionally pretty thatched family home. The property has been sensitively modernised to combine the conveniences of modern living with retained character features including a thatch-roofed porch, exposed beams and original fireplaces. The ground floor accommodation is accessed from a welcoming reception hall which leads to a spacious sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, featuring an original bread oven and a woodburner. There is a well-proportioned study and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted units with granite worktops, a four-oven AGA and a Companion AGA. A cloakroom with space for utilities completes the ground floor.

On the first floor, a large landing gives access to a spacious principal bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, built-in storage and a stylish en suite bathroom with a freestanding claw-foot bath and separate walk-in shower. There is a further double bedroom with a window seat, built-in storage and en suite shower room, plus a third bedroom which is currently used as a gym.

This property has 0.5 acres of land.


Rose Cottage has beautiful gardens measuring approximately half an acre in total. The property is approached through a five-bar gate over a gravelled driveway offering private parking and giving access to a detached double garage. Steps lead up to the well-maintained front garden which features a paved path to the front door, areas of well-maintained lawn, a garden pond with small waterfall and a paved terrace, the whole screened by mature shrubs and trees. The remaining garden offers a wildflower area and a large paved terrace with a covered outdoor pool and hot tub area.

Also within the gardens is a detached timber clad converted outbuilding, which the vendors use as guest accommodation, with an open plan kitchen/reception room, two bedrooms and a shower room.


Rose Cottage is situated in an enviable position within the Dartmoor National Park, which provides thousands of unspoilt acres to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including riding, cycling and walking. The property is approximately 2.6 miles from Chagford and 3.2 miles from Drewsteignton. Both villages are very highly regarded, offering a good range of amenities, shops, pubs and facilities.
