Set within Dartmoor National Park and nestled within a beautiful hidden valley, this property offers peace, relaxation and the perfect base to explore the moors and south coast.

The forest, surrounding the property, is a haven for wildlife and offers a range of walks straight from your front door. Tottiford, Trenchford and Kennick reservoirs are all within walking distance or a short drive away with National Trust properties nearby. Easy access onto Dartmoor highlights such as Haytor, Houndtor and Widdecombe-on-the-Moor. Visit beautiful coastal locations such as Teignmouth, Shaldon, Torquay and Dartmouth. The cathedral city of Exeter is just a 30 minute drive away or why not take a scenic railway journey there from Newton Abbot train station.

This charming ground floor apartment which forms part of the main farmhouse, offers open plan living space with sofa-bed and a king-size bedroom with walk in shower and WC. Enjoy wildlife, observing birds feeding just outside your window. Wi-fi is available and the cottage has a 32-inch Freeview TV and DVD Player. If you choose to stay in and cater for yourselves, the kitchen has an electric oven and hob, fridge with small freezer compartment and a microwave.

Outside your cottage is a small private seating terrace along with large gardens to explore with additional seating areas (with BBQ) right by the stream. The games barn (new for 2019) which includes a Home cinema system, has bi-fold doors which can be fully opened in good weather and a large wood-burning stove for the cooler evenings. If you bring dogs with you there is a dedicated fenced paddock area they can enjoy. You will also find a wood burning outdoor kitchen. Mica, Josephine and Lulu live in a small paddock beside the main driveway to the holiday cottages.  As guests at Greatrock you will be welcome to visit the alpacas whenever you like and a personal guided walk with the alpacas can be arranged during your  holiday for a fee (please contact the owners directly if interested once your booking is confirmed).

We would highly recommend Bluebell Cottage, we spent a very relaxing week in early June. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome by Sarah and Kenneth and nothing was to much trouble, the cottage was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. We spent several days just enjoying the grounds, wildlife and exploring one of the footpaths that ruRead moren through the valley (would recommend walking boots and sticks as some parts are steep and a bit rough). We thoroughly enjoyed the alpaca walk! Hide

The property offers woodland walks right outside the door and so was perfectly located for our German Shepherd dog. There is also a fabulous games barn for the use of visitors; we used it on several occasions to play table tennis, darts and pool - all to the sounds of Bob Marley amid the heat of a roaring log burner.
