    About this property

    In a splendid location down a private drive on a hillside three miles from the Dartmoor town of Chagford is this wonderful detached house. With a terrace stretching the entire width of the house for views across the Teign Valley to Castle Drogo, this is a splendid house for big families or groups of friends to enjoy. The big sitting room has French windows to that terrace, as well as comfy sofas and an open fire. You will enjoy spending time in the kitchen, which is another magnificent room where you can dine around the huge table, chill out in the seating area over the Dartmoor views, watch TV, or rustle up a meal whilst the children play with the toys provided. A study also opens to those time wasting vistas. Take the stairs up to a games room on the first floor, where you can enjoy a game of pool or table football or watch TV. All the bedrooms are smart, with those views and TV, but the pièce de résistance is the big master bedroom, complete with its own sunroom which leads you through to a balcony where you can gaze over Castle Drogo with an evening drink. There are three other bedrooms, plus a shower room and beautiful bathroom on this floor, then follow more stairs up two large bedrooms under the eaves, sharing a bathroom. Outside there are 18 vast acres of lovely peaceful natural grounds, with lawns, ancient woodland and even a prehistoric stone circle. You may not want to leave Sandsgate, but if you do there is National Trust Castle Drogo to explore, the friendly shops and pubs of nearby Chagford, open moorland which invites you to walk and picnic, golf and children’s attractions, the city lights of Exeter within a twenty minute drive and great beaches just forty minutes away. Sandsgate is a very special, private house for big groups to totally relax.

    A picturesque town at the northern point of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, Chagford is small in size but is packed with amenities and things to do. There is a wide range of shops as well as four pubs. Chagford also has more active facilities such as public tennis court and an open-air swimming pool to enjoy at your leisure.

    " Anywhere we had to go we had to travel out of the area. We thought Chagford would be more accessible but the road in is very narrow and not suitable to drive at night time as if you meet traffic at times you would need to reverse to let other cars past and this was difficult in the dark. Nearest decent supermarket is in Oakhampton which is quite a drive away. (Co-op and Waitrose) As for the house it was perfect for our large family and as the weather was against us we spent a lot of time entertaining. "

    "It was nice to have the full sky package however the broadband was very slow but probably due to the remoteness. We saw the deer in the garden which was a nice sight."
    Mrs Peters ‐ 1 Jul 2018
    "I had already visited the house which is why I said ‘met expectations’ not ‘exceeded ‘. Views from house were amazing"

    "An amazing house and view. Far exceeded our expectations from the pictures. Very well equipped and clean. Just a couple of minor points; there was only 1 dishwasher tablet and there was no milk (I have never been to a house on your books or the books of any other company that did not at least provide a pint of milk to get you started)."
