Property code: WOODC

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.

Following recent renovation, Woodcutters offers contemporary accommodation including an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a single bed. The living room area has a wood-burning stove (with a free supply of logs) in addition to electric heating throughout the house. The bathroom benefits from a separate shower, wash basin 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 range cooker and ceramic hob, fridge with small freezer compartment and a microwave.

Outside, to the side of your cottage is a garden area with dining furniture. To the front of the property there are 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.

Ideal place for lovers of walks in the woods and those who like peace and quiet. Fantastic games room. The proprietors are very friendly and when you walk in the cottage the table is ready for you to enjoy the fresh homemade scones with clothed cream and jam. If you like to drive about during your stay, must be prepared to face the very narrow and Read moretwisted country lanes to access the property. Hide

Very comfortable and refurbished to a very high standard. Ken and Sarah very friendly and welcoming. The games room is amazing and was well used by us having a 15 year old boy with us! The only downside are the narrow roads and hilly position so walking for us was difficult. Would we return? Yes!

Reviewed by Andrew 7th June 2019

This cottage was ideal, it was down a long lane off the beaten track and very quiet. The owners were very nice and you didnt see anyone unless you crossed paths in the car park. If you want solace with plenty of uphill walking then this is the place for you.

We loved Woodcutters Cottage it was so peaceful. We were impressed with the facilities including the games room and doggie field. We have never come away from a holiday so chilled and intend visiting again. We are reluctant to tell too many in case we can't book in the future!!

Very comfortable secluded cottage, had every thing we needed. A very warm welcome was made even better by a lovely cream tea. Great for the dogs with good if steep walks and their own exercise paddock. Lovely to wake up to plenty of birdsong, really enjoyed our stay.

An outstanding base for exploring the Dartmoor National Park. Friendly and helpful hosts, who provide welcoming touches for both human and dog guests. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. An additional bonus is the games room which is also well equipped. Highly recommended.
