Full Details

Reeves Cottage is a charming detached Grade II listed cottage believed to date back to the 16th century, located in a secluded position in the much sought after village of Coleford enjoying much peace and privacy, just 4 miles west of Crediton. It is within walking distance of the highly regarded New Inn renowned in the area for its fine food and ales.

The cottage was extended by the present owners some years ago and it now offers spacious family accommodation with 4 bedrooms full of charming character features including heavily beamed ceilings, exposed roof timbers, a "plank & muntin" oak screen, an inglenook fireplace with bread oven and an interesting "witches window".

Outside, the property is set in very mature gardens and grounds which in all extend to about half and acre, including an orchard, from where lovely rural views over the village and beyond can be enjoyed. There is planning for off road parking.

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton take the A377 Barnstaple road for just over 1 mile and turn left at Barnstaple Cross as signed Yeoford and Coleford.

COLEFORD is a journey back in time, a prime example of a traditional Devon hamlet. It is a designated conservation area, with a whole host of irreplaceable listed cottages and buildings. It is also home to ‘The New Inn’, known locally for its outstanding food. It is no secret that Coleford is a beautiful village – but it is also fit for a king. King Charles 1 is said to have visited Coleford during the civil war, stabling his horses there on the 22nd of July 1644, and inspecting his troops from the porch of Spencer Cottage. The nearest market town to Coleford, for a selection of modern facilities is Crediton – 3 miles to the west.
