The Old Telephone Exchange at Mamhead looks out over Tuscan like scenery to the coast at Exmouth and is situated in a quiet country lane with regular sightings of deer, birds and other wildlife. There is no street lighting or noise of any kind. The location is ideal for walkers and cyclists, or anyone wishing to step off the world for a while, or as a base to explore a beautiful part of Devon. There is a coarse fishing lake five minutes walk down the lane.
This tiny, yet perfectly formed, hideaway offers peace, quiet and tranquility ‘away from it all’, yet lies within a few minutes’ drive of the motorway and the coast. There are shops, pubs and eating places three miles away in the village of Starcross., which also has bus and train links to Exeter and beyond, plus a ferry across to Exmouth.
The cottage, which was featured in the BBC Homes Under the Hammer programme, has a full kitchen, shower room, comfortable living area (with wood burner stove), a mezzanine sleep shelf with a double bed and amazing views through to the coast. The sleep shelf has been added this year to give extra space and comfort to visitors plus additional sleeping capacity. (Can now sleep up to six people)
On the ground floor there are two bed settees which will convert to double beds, which can be prepared for client's arrival if required. The ground floor accommodation is suitable for disabled people, and is 'dog friendly' (no charge for dogs), with parking next to the cottage and a shallow ramp down to the front door. There is a TV/DVD and radio, wood-burner (logs provided), plus additional electric heaters and electric blankets on the single beds. A 'welcome pack' with basic essentials is provided on arrival. Outside, there is a BBQ space and secluded seating area.
