Nestled on the outer edge of the 600-year-old Arlington estate only six miles from Barnstaple, this Victorian gardener’s lodge is set in secluded woodland. The cottage sits at the top of a little-used driveway accessed from the A39 behind elegant wrought-iron gates, originally planned to be the grand entrance to the estate. From the doorstep miles of footpaths criss-cross the 2,700 acre estate, with the Court itself only two miles on foot across the wooded valley.
The cottage has undergone some refurbishment having its window relocated to enable you to enjoy views of the woodland and a bank of wild flowers depending on the season. The bathroom has been refurbished and enjoys under floor heating.
