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.

I think the description for the walks direct from the cottage are very misleading as both walks from the cottages are extremely hilly and unless you are very fit are impossible, also warnings about open mining shafts if you go off the path. Unfortunately for us fencing was being put up for 3 days so was not very relaxing and to top it all off my daRead moreughters dog ended up covered in ticks from laying outside woodcutters, we ended up leaving on the Thursday to take her to the vets to get them remove Hide

This cottage was absolutely perfect for our week away - the games room, with its log burner, was brilliant and kept us all amused in the evenings. The hosts could not have been more helpful and even went out of their way to drive us and two dogs to the local garage when our car broke down!

Cottage is in a perfect location, rural but with plenty to do. Accommodation was spotless and dog friendly. Walks on the door step and added benefit of an amazing games room on the farm. Hosts were helpful and provided all we needed. Will return.

We had a fantastic time at this cottage. Lovely peaceful location but easy to get out and about. Great facilities at the farm. We loved the games room and had our own cinema nights with the projector screen. Brilliant when the weather isnt being kind. Lovely walks from the site itself and very dog friendly.

Primrose Cottage was a comfortable and cosy escape especially when the log fire was burning! The decor of the recently refurbished cottage was to a very high standard.
