'The Best Place To Live In Rural Britain' - The Jewel of Dartmoor National Park

Showhomes open Friday, Saturday and Monday 10am – 4pm, outside of these times appointments can be arranged through our agents.   

Stannary Gardens is a brand-new development set in private grounds in the heart of Chagford and the Dartmoor National Park, with a choice of six spacious two bedroom apartments and nine three/four bedroom houses. These individually designed homes create a unique blend of style and community for those aged 55 and over.

This small scale bespoke development is set around a landscaped communal garden with a summerhouse. You will feel at home here and your friends, family and grandchildren will love to visit.

The ancient stannary town of Chagford, named ‘the best place to live in rural Britain’ by the Sunday Times in 2015, sits proudly on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, close to the Teign Valley. Boasting breathtaking landscapes and covering more than 250 square miles, this unspoilt corner of England is a truly exceptional place to live. There are a host of fascinating independent shops including one of the most extensive hardware stores in the area, the recently renovated thatched Grade II* Three Crowns Hotel, a delicatessen, a grocery store, a butcher and a wine merchant, all creating a flourishing town centre.

Add to this the coffee shops, pubs and art galleries, together with the renowned and award winning Gidleigh Park, a 2 Star Michelin  Restaurant and Hotel, it is a rural town that has everything.


Through the initial project design, together with the Prince’s Trust, it was agreed that Stannary Gardens should include some new apartments, a rare find in such a location. There are six generously proportioned two bedroom, two bathroom apartments arranged over three floors, offering stunning views from the upper floors.  In addition the two garden apartments provide ultimate flexibility with a contemporary style of living.

They represent a true lock up and leave prospect, with lift access to all floors, good sized garages or allocated parking spaces, ample storage, underfloor heating and generous balconies or external living areas. The position in the magnificent landscape of Dartmoor National Park makes this a very special place to live life to the full.


The traditional design of these houses creates an attractive street scene which sits comfortably in context with its surroundings. Each freehold home is generously proportioned with its own private garden, extra wide garage and parking space. Blue Cedar Homes aim to build light and airy homes that focus on space and style, be energy efficient, warm and easy to maintain. Gas central heating, sunrooms, photovoltaic panels and high levels of insulation help to achieve this. These houses are designed to reflect the changing needs when downsizing, with a flexible ground floor layout that can easily be adapted to create a bedroom and en suite bathroom, ensuring it is a ‘home for life’.

Apartments from £299,950 (current availability).

Houses from £450,000 (current availability).
