This is a lovely cottage for dog owners in a great location for exploring Dartmoor as well as having some lovely walks right from the doorstep. The owners also have a good size field which is great for the dogs to run around, off-lead in relative safety. I would recommend this cottage to dog owners and walkers alike.

Beautiful rural location and cosy cottage- we loved sitting in front of the wood burner. Delicious chocolate brownies and bubbly on arrival which was a lovely surprise. Enjoyed walking on the various public footpaths and just chilling out. Thank you!

'And breath' - is the best I could describe it. The cottage can be a nightmare to find but once you have made it you can simply sit and breath and let the world go by. The pace of life is so slow - the lanes in that area make sure of that, 30mph can be frightening until adjusted to this rural idyll. Oh, the people are just so warm and welcoming tooRead more. Do beware of the hornets at night in this area - so don't make my mistake of going out and leaving the light on outside the front door. Hide
