A clean modern house with two comfortable guests' bedrooms, contemporary private bathroom with bath and shower attachment; towels are provided. Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities in both bedrooms.

Please note: The hosts sleep on the top floor of this townhouse.

Buckfastleigh lies on the Southern edge of Dartmoor. Our house is near the A38 (Devon Expressway) which serves both Plymouth and Exeter (30 mins each way by car). See map.

We have a cat, she is not allowed in the bedrooms.

The space
The rooms are thoroughly cleaned and, because of Covid, are sanitized between each set of visitors

The two letting rooms and guest bathroom take up the whole of the middle floor of our townhouse and are not let out separately to unconnected people. We sleep on the top floor and have our own private bathroom.

Besides the main king sized bedroom we also have a twin bedroom available with two full size single beds, which is very suitable for 2 children or two adults. We could put in a camp bed in that room for a third child if required.

Should you wish to make use of it just add extra people when booking.

The twin room is at the back of the house and with the window open, some road noise can be heard. Please be aware of this before you book this room. Our windows are double glazed and if closed this is barely audible. We supply a fan for our guests' comfort in the summer. It is naturally a fairly cool room.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in both bedrooms.

Towels provided.

Hairdryer is provided

Mini fridge in Kingsize bedroom is provided

The cold water from the bathroom taps is drinkable.

NB If two guests would like a room each then please book for 3 people. Otherwise it will either be the Kingsize OR the twin room.

Guest access
I'm so sorry, due to Covid and the fact that our downstairs is all open plan, it's impossible to socially distance, so while this is going on I am unable let our guests use the kitchen, including microwave, fridge, cutlery and crockery nor the dining area.

There is a mini fridge provided in the king sized bedroom and tea and coffee making facilities in both rooms plus a kettle in each room.

Other things to note
Our house is situated in a cul de sac of 8 houses a very short walk from town, which is a friendly little place that is steeped in history.

Buckfastleigh has a one way system. It is quicker to walk into town than drive from our house.

Heart and Soul Courses - we are about a 10 minute walk, 2 minute drive to Heart and Soul, so ideally situated for course participants.

Location

Buckfastleigh, Devon, United Kingdom

Buckfastleigh was a bustling woollen town until the middle of the 20th century. In Fore Street there are still a few small shops, a general store - Huccabys which includes the Post Office, and a Co-op amongst others. It is very quaint with some lovely little nooks and crannies and churches of most denominations.

There are 3 pubs - The Kings Arms, The Globe (serves food daytime and in the evening 6pm until 8pm Mon - Thurs, 6pm until 9pm Fri and Sat) and The White Hart, within a short walk from our house, together with an eat in/takeaway fish and chip shop, a Chinese and an Asian takeaway. There are two cafes serving snacks etc during the day.

A short walk away at the start of Fore Street there is a pub called The Valiant Soldier which closed its doors in 1965 and today remains exactly as it was then. It is now a museum and well worth a visit. Open from April - October.

A heated, open air swimming open from May to September.

Many eating places out and about for wonderful local dishes, fish and cream teas.

Buckfastleigh is in a beautiful part of Devon. Within 30 min drive to the nearest beach.

A mixture of ages live in Buckfastleigh who all give you a ready smile when you meet them walking along the road.

There are pubs/restaurants serving food a short drive away. Dartmoor Lodge and Abbey Inn to mention two.

Nearby is the South Devon Steam Railway which runs from Buckfastleigh to Totnes alongside the picturesque River Dart.

Buckfast Abbey. Well worth a visit with beautiful grounds and gardens and a lovely restaurant.

We are very close to Dartmoor with the ponies, sheep and cattle wandering around freely. Ideal for walking. The little village of Widecombe on the Moor is not to be missed.

Places very close to us are Dartmoor, Plymouth, Exeter, Totnes (nearest station 15mins by car), Newton Abbot, the beaches and towns/villages in the South Hams (Salcombe, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge). English Riviera - Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Teignmouth and Dawlish.

Facilities nearby for children include Pennywell Farm, Dart Country Park, Woodlands. All great fun outdoor experiences. Round the corner there is Dart Rock which has climbing walls for all ages

My husband Grahame and I retired to Devon around 2008. We are Londoners by birth. We have two married grown up children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. Our holidays are important but we don't go too far afield these days. Mainly Lanzarote and main land Spain. I love pop music of most decades. Grew up as a London mod and have always loved fashion. Hobbies include knitting, crochet, patchwork and doing jigsaws. We enjoy socialising. The environment is important to me and I try to recycle as much as I can and have drastically reduced our use of plastic. We also try to buy local produce where we can and support the local shops. I love meeting people and Airbnb suits us in that we can enjoy the best of both worlds ie family and friends staying and Airbnb guests who want to visit this beautiful part of England, for whatever reason they have for their stay. So far we haven't been travelers through Airbnb. If we were, we'd be very tidy and clean and greatly respect the host's space. If I had a motto I think it would be " "Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."
