Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My name is Ronnie Clifford and I bought my house in Bovey Tracey in 2008 to be close to my Mother and Sister who both live in the area. I have not been able to spend as much time there as I would like over the last couple of years and I really want the property to be lived in. So, I have decided to rent it out as a holiday let in order to get some energy running through the house. It has a lovely feel to it, warm and homely and I do hope you will enjoy staying in it as much as I do when I am not either living in London or spending time traveling abroad.

Why the Owner Chose Abbotskerswell:
I love to be in Bovey (as the locals call it). It's easy to get around and you can walk out for dinner or to the pub for a drink. The outdoor swimming pool is a must in the summer and is a stones throw away. Get out on your bikes and visit the local area, calling in at many of the local restaurants for a bite to eat along the way. Torquay is not too far away and some of the best beaches in the country are worth a day out to visit. It's always good to have Exeter close by for a bit of 'retail therapy', if all the walking and cycling get too much! There is also a paint ball circuit just down the road, before you get to Trago Mills. If you haven't been to Trago, then it is worth a visit, if only to pick up your holiday bargains. For any family 'The house of Marbles' is also a must with lots of things for both kids and adults to do, plus of course, great food at reasonable prices.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has both a downstairs twin bedroom with a single bed (and a fold-out if needed), plus a downstairs Wet room. With ramp access to the property from the front it provides ease of access for those less able to use lots of steps or stairs. Upstairs there is also a cloakroom and two additional double bedrooms. The most outstanding feature of this property is its south facing garden which gets the sun from morning to evening most of the year around. With BBQ and Chimenea provided plus outdoor benches and tables and chairs; enjoy wonderful evenings in this stunningly beautiful south facing garden.
