About Will Lee
We are a brother and sister who a few years ago inherited this family house on the edge of Dartmoor. We love spending time here, but it is a long drive from London where we both live and neither of us gets down as much as we’d like. Until now, it has been used only by family and friends, but we’ve now decided to make it more widely available. It is very much a family home not a holiday let – not everything is new, not everything matches – and we hope that visitors will enjoy its character as well as its great location.
Why Will Lee chose Newton Abbot
For over twenty years this house has been the Dartmoor home from home for our large extended family. We love the whole area, particularly the river, moor and tors on the doorstep - you can hear the distant rush of the Dart from the garden - and the cliffs and beaches of the south coast, a 45 minute drive away. The house is the end house in a very quiet hamlet of old granite houses, with sweeping views from the garden and windows. You can walk straight out of the house up on to the moor or across the fields down to the river. It therefore feels very remote but is in fact only 15 minutes by car to the local town which has excellent amenities.
What makes this House unique
The house is a wonderful base for exploring Dartmoor. There are lots of places of interest and activities for children in the immediate area, and the A38 provides quick access south to the coast. The nearby small town of Ashburton has a wide range of shops - delis, hardware, antiques, books, walking gear. The early sixteenth century house has bags of character, with a granite spiral staircase, mullioned windows and carved and painted beams. The decor is comfortable not smart, and the rooms are full of antiques, books, artworks and curios. The long garden running down the hillside has many secret corners which are fun for children to explore. There is plenty of space inside and out, and it is a great place to spend time whatever the weather.
