The spacious living room invites you to unwind by the wood-burning stove (certified), perfect for those cosy evenings. The 2021 fitted kitchen diner becomes a hub of activity, combining modern convenience with an AEG induction hob, extractor, oven & a dishwasher with the charm of a cottage lifestyle.

Outside, a large double garage with utility area and workshop space behind offer endless possibilities for parking and space for storage and hobbies. A courtyard is found off the boot room & gives access to the garden office (currently an occasional bedroom) which leads to the south-facing, private rear garden measures an impressive 17m x 8m, a canvas for your gardening dreams and outdoor enjoyment with a relatively level lawn and then steps down through the mature vined arch to a further lawn with greenhouse.

CHERITON FITZPAINE sits in a vast and hilly lowland region of Devon, the village is 9 miles from the City of Exeter and 1.5 miles northeast of the Crediton/ Tiverton A3072 road – a route that could be argued to be one of the most stunning sunset drives in the county. The village appears timeless and has many listed cottages with the classic poured custard thatched roofs. Notably there’s also a gothic church, known for its hard edges and sharp peaks. There are two pubs, The Ring of Bells and The Half Moon Inn – both of which are unique, but equally Devonian in spirit. Cheriton Fitzpaine is a substantial size and has a multi-million pound primary school, a community shop and Doctor’s surgery plus nearby Thornes Farm Shop, Café & Deli which is home to some exceptional quality homegrown produce. Local children are fortunate to be able to use (acquire grass stains in!) and shoot hoops in ‘Jack’s Acre’, a large playing field/ park maintained by the parish council.
DIRECTIONS: Upon entering the village from the A3072 (Coffin Tree Cross), pass the left turn into Drakes Meadow and Myrtle Cottage will be found up a small lane (Post Office Street) on the right hand side. Please note that parking is limited in the lane so please park opposite the pub and walk up to the cottage for viewings.
