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 (serving food) 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 cottage forms part of the main original 19 th century farmhouse,  offering an open plan lounge diner and kitchen on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds (this room can be offered as a single bedroom on request). The living room area has a wood-burning stove (with a free supply of logs) in addition to central heating throughout the house and spacious walk in shower room. 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, at the back of your cottage is a private courtyard with dining furniture, accessed by the French doors from the lounge or via the side gate. A further bistro seating area can be found at the front of the property along with large gardens to explore with additional seating areas (with BBQ) right by the stream. The games barn (new for 2019) 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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage in the wilderness, the property is tidy and clean and well stocked. Scones on arrival is a nice touch. The kids loved the games room, kept them entertained on a day when it rained.

Sarah, Ken and the dogs were extremely welcoming. The property was lovely, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The games barn is fab! The small touches made us instantly feel at home, beautiful fresh flowers, a delicious cream tea and treats for our dog! The property is in a valley surrounded by woodland and beautiful views. Just down the laRead morene is the local pub (dog friendly) serving great homemade food - we ate there most days! The locals and landlord were very friendly also. Hide

Sarah and Kenneth have done everything to make you feel welcome. The cottage is nicely furnished - comfy beds - and well equipped. The gardens are lovely, the games room amazing. Table tennis, pool, darts, books, puzzles, table games, CD, DVDs - even guitars to have a session. So no need for kids to be bored.

Lovely, clean cottage with peaceful surroundings and great dog walks. Great games room to keep you occupied if you find some spare time.

Reviewed by Marion 8th June 2019

The cottage was very well equipped & comfortable. The owners seemed to have thought of everything, even providing plenty of wood for the log-burner. The property sits in a valley & very secluded, good walking in the area & excellent for doggie guests.

The cottage is in a great location(despite very narrow lanes) with amazing views. Bird feeders outside attracted lots of different birds. Nice welcome with delicious scones and fresh roses a nice touch. Local pub with great food.

Reviewed by Ash 15th April 2019

The cottage was smaller than I thought but as there was only 3 of us (plus a dog) it wasnt too bad. I think if my wife had accompanied me, it would have felt quite cramped. Its a good base to explore the region but beware that the roads around the cottage are very narrow. The newly built games barn is excellent with plenty of choice be it pool, tabRead morele football or just listening to some music. Plus the surrounding countryside is very tranquil Hide

Lovely relaxing environment. Excellent games room facility and delicious homemade scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam waiting for us on arrival.
