Hartsmead Cottage is a single storey barn conversion situated on the lower slopes of Dartmoor near the village of Lydford which is well known for Lydford Gorge which is owned by the National Trust.
Hartsmead has a light and spacious full height living space with a bedroom and bathroom, which has a shower and separate bath.
Set in a tranquil rural location with direct access on to the open Moor along a green lane so perfect for walkers and cyclists as there is no need to use the roads.
Having started my life as a "townie" I now feel so much more at home on Dartmoor with the open Moorland on my doorstep and surrounded by farmland.
I am passionate about horses and own 4 beautiful white boys so you may see me riding one of them on my way to the Moor with my dog running alongside too.
My husband Bernard, is French but has lived much longer in England than France and even has an English sense of humour so I am very lucky because he is also an excellent cook!
I am the sort of person who likes to do everything in comfort and style which I hope you will see both in Hartsmead Cottage and on our property, but both my husband and I have always loved working in the garden and getting our hands dirty with all the jobs that need doing.
When we lived in France we also had a holiday home so we are very pleased to welcome people to our home and if the guests require any help or information, we are happy to stand and chat or if guests prefer more privacy a quick hello is all we need.
I believe in live and let live providing no living creature is harmed in any way.
