Garden Cottage is a wonderful home located in a prominent position overlooking the Devon countryside with stunning and idyllic views.
This truly hidden gem is perfectly placed within its magnificent house and gardens extending to around 8 acres in total. From the moment you turn off the road onto your own private driveway which leads under a canopy of cherry trees which provides your first glimpse of the dwelling. The driveway extends up to the property and around to the side with plenty of parking and large double garage.
Whilst the tranquil and peaceful setting is part of its charm, the property itself is equally breath-taking. The previous and current owners have sympathetically restored the dwelling to maintain its heritage whilst upgrading the heating and electrics to suit modern 21st century living.
I don’t believe there to be in room in the house which doesn’t offer its own individuality, be it the snug with its woodburning stove, the kitchen dining room with its polished slate flooring or perhaps the master bedroom with its far-reaching views across rolling countryside to name a few of my favourites.
I wonder what yours would be?

The property is south facing therefore it makes complete sense for there to be a beautiful stone-paved seating area outside the front, not only to enjoy the sun when it shines but also to enjoy those views across well-tended gardens, your very own woodland and countryside. The outside is made of up several areas, including the landscaped formal gardens which majority adjoin the front but extends the rear too.
In the corner of the formal gardens there is an opening and pathway which meanders from the home into a magical woodland paradise. There is a huge variety of species of plants, shrubs and trees along your travels with each area offering a different vista across your grounds. There is substantial lake which you can walk around with a central island and two large waterfalls cascading over into another lower lake.
The grounds level out towards the bottom and host more mature trees creating a sense of privacy, tranquility and seclusion from the rest of the world in your own private oasis.
N.B it’s worth noting from the main entrance there is separate vehicular access which leads to the lower wooded grounds which we seen a great benefit and even a timber built tractor store to house essential tools and equipment to maintain the gardens.Kelly is a small hamlet in the heart of the rolling West Devon countryside. The surrounding area is made up of similar large country properties with, in the heart of the hamlet the Church of St Mary the virgin, which serves Kelly and Bradstone. Within a few miles is the village of Lifton which has a traditional range of facilities such as a Village Post Office and Stores, a County Primary School, a Doctors Surgery, Petrol Filling Station and two top class hotels.
Further comprehensive shopping, commercial and recreational facilities can be located in either Launceston (7 miles) or the Devon Stannary Town of Tavistock (9 miles). There are a wide range of private Schools with St Josephs (Launceston) and Mount House and Kelly College (Tavistock).
Excellent transport links can be found in the Cathedral City of Exeter by road, rail and air (Exeter International Airport) which is about 45 miles distant. The A30 dual carriageway can be reached in approximately 10 minutes. The Continental Ferryport and City of Plymouth is approximately 26 miles distant and has regular cross channel services to France and Spain. From Lifton proceed Eastbound towards Tinhay. Turn right signposted towards Chillaton. Continue along this road for about 2 1/2 miles. Take the right hand turning signposted towards Meadwell and Kelly. Proceed through Meadwell and gently descend into Kelly. Continue along, where if you go past the entrance to Kelly House on the right, the lane serving Garden Cottage will be found on the left.
