Location – Moorhaven Village, South Devon

The Water Tower sits just within the Dartmoor National Park in Moorhaven Village. Moorhaven Village was created in the 1990’s when the former Victorian hospital buildings were transformed into beautiful and immaculate homes. The Water Tower is the most distinctive building on the estate. Despite commanding a central position it is very private and peaceful.

On site there are wonderful communal gardens to be enjoyed.. tennis courts, a boule pitch and croquet lawn.

There are two parking spaces adjacent to the front entrance.

Activities – so many to choose from..

Footpaths lead directly on to Dartmoor from The Water Tower

Wrangaton Golf Club is a two min drive away and the course borders Moorhaven

Horse riding is available locally

Some of the UK’s finest surfing beaches are within a 20 mins drive – Bigbury, Bantham
