North Bovey, Devon, UK

Now available for bookings

Clinging to the south-east of wuthering Dartmoor National Park and backing on to a patchwork of sheep-freckled pastures, the sale of this charming Grade II listed cottage offers a magnificent opportunity for those seeking an idyllic Devon retreat.

Sitting within the former tin-mining village of North Bovey, flanked by a cluster of thatched cottages and overlooking a village green, The Riddle is an immaculate abode containing features that hark back to Medieval times. Downstairs, a well-equipped country kitchen connects a sitting room and snug. Upstairs are three king-size bedrooms, a family shower room, and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with a roll top bath. Across 153 square metres, the former wool farmers’ home oozes quirk while retaining its period charm. You'll find stable doors, inglenooks, bare brickwork, and a pillar box red AGA among its features. Whitewashing adds a touch of Nordic hygge on windy Dartmoor days, while the westerly herb garden makes for a sun-spilled dining spot.

There is dedicated driveway parking for one car, and overspill for additional cars around the frontal green. There is also a garden outhouse with potential to be a pocket-sized reading nook or studio. Just one minute from the front gate is an intimate inn serving light lunches and hearty roasts, and a local store stocked with little dailies like Devon honey and fresh eggs. For grander grocery lists, North Bovey is well-connected to Moretonhampstead and historic Exeter. Coastal gems are less than an hour away, so afternoons can be spent strolling Teignmouth’s sandy beaches or browsing the galleries of Agatha Christie’s Torquay. A successful property rental on the Unique Homestays portfolio since 2016, the sale of The Riddle offers an opportunity for buyers to secure a lucrative income in an enchanting location.
