Full Details

Smiths Cottage is a freshly painted and re-roofed delightful and deceptively spacious period unlisted cottage set in the heart of the village within walking distance of nearby amenities such as the White Hart Inn, supermarket, modern doctors surgery and excellent primary school. There are also regular bus services to Exeter, Okehampton and Hatherleigh.

It offers spacious three double bedroomed accommodation with a 2016 fitted family bathroom upstairs, including a P-shaped bath with shower and curved screen over, plus a heated towel rail. There is a great deal of character alongside the benefit of uPVC double glazing, oil-fired central heating and a wood-burning stove in the living room and Rayburn in the dining room. The modern fitted kitchen has an integrated Belling oven, plus an electric hob and hood with an adjoining utility room with light, power and plumbing for a washing machine. This room could easily be adapted to create a home office if desired.

There is an enclosed garden immediately to the rear (9m x 6.3m) with useful block built workshop (3m x 2.56m with light & power) and pleasant recently paved seating area with lawns and flower beds surrounding. A gated footpath leads to a further larger garden (23m x 11m), which is enclosed, largely lawned with a greenhouse, mature trees and shrubs. It is situated to the south of the neighbouring garden, where excellent views of open countryside are enjoyed.

Note: There is a pedestrian right of way down from the front of the cottage through a side alley to the Cottage’s rear garden. The neighbour also has a right of way around the rear should it be needed, although the vendors inform us that this facility is seldom used.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

BOW is a hilltop village on the River Yeo. It sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rdmillennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area. Modern Bow is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket – an idyllic country escape.

DIRECTIONS : If entering Bow from Crediton, proceed through the village, and the cottage will be seen on the left hand side of the road, before leaving Bow, just opposite the well regarded White Hart Inn.
