Overview

About the property

Warleigh Lodge,Tamerton Foliot, Plymouth.Quiet location, Near Dartmoor, National Trust. 3 beds, 2 bathrooms. Dogs welcome

Once the gatehouse of the entrance to the local Manor house and built by a priest in 1852, Warleigh Lodge has been renovated and now presents a high standard of accommodation within a rural setting. With views across the Tamar to Cornwall and the surrounding countryside, Warleigh Lodge offers a tranquil haven but is only a 10 minute drive away from Plymouth. Dartmoor, championship golf courses, English Heritage and National Trust properties are all within a 15 minute drive. The accommodation (all on one level), includes master bedroom with 4 poster and en suite bathroom, double bedroom with King size bed, twin bedroom, family bathroom, kitchen, lounge (with open fire) with gas fired central heating throughout. The property has been recently improved with a brand new kitchen and a conservatory dining room with panoramic views across the surrounding countryside. The conservatory has double sliding doors so that you feel as if you are outside in the garden! It also has a sofa bed (with sleeping area 3' 8" wide) and a 3' fold up bed allowing temporary additional sleeping opportunities. There is additional electric heating provided in the conservatory to ensure that it is warm inside even if it is snowing outside! Private parking for 2 cars within the grounds. Maximum 2 well behaved dogs allowed charged at £20.00 each per week or part thereof. The garden is part laid to lawn and partly left wild to encourage local wildlife. We have seen in the garden pheasants, bats, hedgehogs and the garden overlooks the local farm where sheep frequently graze.

About Barry Morris

I live in England with my wife, two children, dog and two cats. My wife and I both work but enjoy taking our holidays in Spain for the weather, food and way of life and the West Country for peace and tranquility.

Barry Morris purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Barry Morris chose South Devon

Only a few minutes away from the A38 (the dual carriageway road that runs across Devon) but in the countryside - that is one of the great benefits of Warleigh Lodge. Cornwall is 10 minutes away, Dartmoor is 10 minutes away, Plymouth Town Centre is 20 minutes away and we can get to The Eden Project in an hour. Golf courses abound locally, National Trust and English Heritage properties are all within easy reach.

Water sports, archery, go kart racing, steam railways are all in this area. There are also some famous beaches nearby. But most of all, is the peace and tranquility.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and tranquility in a property that has character. Views of the across rolling countryside on 3 sides of the Lodge. In the mornings you awake to birdsong. Breakfast in the new conservatory looking across the river or enjoy a glass of wine of an evening and watch the sunset - your choice.

In the winter, warm yourself in front of the roaring log fire in the lounge.

Luxurious tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised. To start with, Warleigh Lodge was twice the size we expected. In addition, Barry has refurbished it to a very high standard with great attention for detail. It was really interesting to see the photos depicting the different stages of the work carried out over the past years, while the original character of the house has been retained. Inside, we found everything we needed. And then the surroundings ..... We couldn't get enough of the views. It was too chilly to sit outside, but the large conservatory was the perfect place to relax and gaze into the distance. We also found it pleasantly quiet. In fact, I was able to sleep here without earplugs in, which is unusual. Communication with and instructions from Barry were perfect. The only thing we didn't like, was having to leave at the end of our stay ..... So we will be back! Thanks!

Views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

This priest's house had everything we needed and more. An amazing place with wonderfully comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms and views to die for! The work that has been carried out by Barry and his team have transformed this house into a glorious place to stay. We spent a lot of time in the conservatory as the views are panoramic,peaceful and beautiful. We would love to come and stay again!
