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.
Although the cottage will feel like it is in a different world, a pub is just a ten minute walk away with a large selection of shops, restaurants and cafes in Bovey Tracey. 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).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
