    One of the most desirable features of the house is the beautiful land, which totals 37.32 acres. As well as a lawn and gardens, there are six paddocks with further areas containing an outdoor jumping space. There are three meadows, one of which is used for clay pigeon shooting, and various wooded areas containing a large pond as well as a dedicated rifle range.

    The River Tavy borders the eastern boundary for just under a mile. It comes with single bank fishing rights and rock pools which are ideal for swimming.

    Situated to the south of the main house is the impressive indoor school, which also incorporates six large stables.

    There is also a Dutch barn with two additional stables and storage space. There is also a tractor shed in one of the fields.

    The main house — which has five bedrooms — boasts a useful boot room and utility room, leading to the family kitchen featuring an AGA.

    From any aspect you will find outstanding open views across the surrounding hills and Tors of Dartmoor…
