The Old Churchhouse has medieval origins, is Grade II listed and is peacefully situated adjacent to the churchyard away from traffic yet conveniently close to the market square. Once known as the Priests house it had connections with the Friars of Tavistock Abbey and has a rich history. In addition to surprisingly high beamed ceilings, a notable fireplace, and quirky historic/architectural details, it has unusual mullion windows with diamond leaded windows from the early 1800's. Look closely and you will find initials scratched into some of the panes. This much loved home is warm and welcoming and looking for its next 'keeper'.
