Country cottages - Devon and Gloucestershire


Three fairly isolated rural properties today, all with land, great views and nearby streams.
Two Brook Cottage (above) is in the Forest of Dean, a couple of miles from the village of Blakeney.
It comes with around an acre of land (mostly sloping), with the stream to the front and direct access to the forest. Vehicle access to the property is limited and the two-bedroom house needs completely renovating.


Two Brook is up for sale through Ferrino, at £180k. Details and more pix here.
The detached bungalow below, sent by Sarah, is up for auction on August 29th, with a guide price of £230k.

Which might seem expensive for a not particularly pretty two-bed bungalow, but it's in a gorgeous location on Dartmoor with amazing views and comes with just over half an acre of land and a nearby wild swimming pool.

It's at Batworthy on the Moor, around four miles from the rather lovely Chagford and 22 from Exeter.
On the market through Stags, details and more pictures here.
Also up for sale at the same auction is the two-room Dartmoor chalet, below, with a guide price of £75k.

It comes with half an acre of land, frontage onto the River Taw, vehicle access and parking and is about half  a mile from the north Dartmoor village of Belstone.
According to the agent's blurb, it's believed to have been built in the 1920s by local artist, Peter Younger, who lived and worked there.
The chalet has been used as a holiday cottage and campsite for many years, with overnight sleeping permitted. Details and more pix here.
