Interior of Colwell Wood Cottage, Devon.
A secluded cottage in the middle of a picturesque ancient woodland that is the ultimate retreat has gone on the market for £1.25m.
Colwell Wood Cottage's history dates back to the Domesday Book and has links to aristocratic medieval families, a Napoleonic war hero and a King.
Now the property near Honiton in Devon is perfect for someone who wants to live like a hermit as it sits in a clearing in 75 acres of woods, offering unrivalled solitude.
In the 15th century during the Wars of the Roses it was held by Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who finally became King Richard III.
