Ancient Bridge Cottage in the delightful old world village of Buckland-in-the-Moor in Devon’s Dartmoor National Park after a recent complete no expense spared refurbishment, including a new thatched roof sits in a beautiful natural woodland garden.

I am sure many the romantics amongst us have dreams of living in a character filled chocolate box cottage like this, I know I certainly would.

    Gorgeous (although a friend of mine has a thatched cottage…lots of mice to deal with !!)

  • Thank-you very much Pat, my last house was an old cottage and I soon learned that the mice were there long before me,
    Regards, Rod.

    Dartmoor is certainly up there for consideration when we retire.
    Will not be able to afford anything like this though.
    Beautiful capture Rod

  • Thank-you very much Mike, Dartmoor would make the ideal retirement area for a man such as yourself who enjoys the outdoors and open spaces, I hope your dreams come true,
    Regards, Rod.

  • You and me both Cynthia, I have long admired this beautiful old cottage, there is even a moorland stream running directly to the left of the scene, just imagine sitting in the garden on a Summer’s day by the side of the stream, enough teasing, thanks so much my friend,
    Regards, Rod.
