For a true taste of Devon life, nothing beats staying in one of these stunning properties on this working farm in the heart of Dartmoor.

Rugged Dartmoor is an exciting place to be, and with pedigree cattle living around your Devon getaway, this is the perfect place to see a side to Devon which is often overlooked. Of course, with easy access to the A30, the leafy south coast and sandy north coast are all a short drive away, meaning beach days are easy for all the family. The cathedral city of Exeter is close by, and offers a wide range of boutique shops along its cobbled streets, as well as a variety of independent eateries and bars. Other attractions within easy reach of the property include Castle Drogo, Crealy Devon and countless National trust properties and gardens. You can also take advantage of the owner's beauty treatment room on-site which offers a range of treatments. Please contact the owner for further information.

The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is arranged over a split-level and has a wood burner with first bag of logs provided, a TV/DVD and French doors leading outside. The kitchen area has everything you could want to feed a group of people and includes an electric double oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

The cottage was immaculate, situated on a working farm which also has a very high standard of tidiness and cleanliness. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and guests are welcome to stroll around. The welcome tray was outstanding with a cream tea, butter eggs, wine and and fresh flowers. It would be difficult to improve on this holiday cottage.
