Property Description: WILLOW HOUSE
Thought to have origins dating back to approximately 200 years, Willow House is a detached house bursting with character and charm and has been thoughtfully extended about 20 years. The property sits in an elevated yet private position on the fringe of the village of Cornworthy and benefits from beautiful countryside views from both floors. CORNWORTHY
Cornworthy is a popular village close to the Dart and with a 15th century church, a pub and a parish hall. Part of the village, which has a mix of old and modern property, is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and close by are the remains of a 13th century Augustinian nunnery. Totnes, about five miles away, is known as an Elizabethan town but has much earlier origins with a castle, a wonderful position on the River Dart and a main line railway station. It has a well regarded community college, full range of shops, a weekly market, a wide choice of cultural facilities and a mainline railway station.
The secluded pastoral village of Cornworthy is far from any noisy main road, and yet is ideally situated for access to both Dartmouth and Totnes shops, the moors and coast. This village has a vibrant friendly community and is within easy reach of Dittisham, where there is a sailing club, pub, bistro and village shop. There is a pleasant woodland track from the centre of this village down to the banks of the River Dart to the gastro pub in Tuckenhay. ACCOMMODATION
