Rich in period features with a wonderfully rustic interior, be transported to centuries past at this traditional Devonshire countryside retreat surrounded by the picturesque Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With scenic hiking trails, woodland footpaths and traffic-free cycling routes towards Dartmoor from the doorstep, plus hours of fun splashing around your private heated indoor swimming pool, special life-long memories are guaranteed at this getaway sleeping eight guests.

End a big day’s adventure by gathering the gang for a catch-up in one of the three generous living spaces; catch some stunning melting sunsets in the suntrap conservatory, unwind to the soft crackles of the roaring open fire in the rustic lounge or relax weary walking muscles on the comfy sofas in the charming snug. Start the morning off by preparing a locally sourced breakfast in the stylish kitchen/diner to feed the crowd seated around the farmhouse-style dining table or enjoy more formal dining in the separate dining room that’ll transport you to times past by its characterful exposed ceiling beams and antique style decor. Upstairs, you’ll find four bedrooms, three doubles and one queen-size, with views across the countryside that’ll lull you into a peaceful slumber, leaving you refreshed and ready for tomorrow’s adventure. Outside, there’s plenty of room for garden games on the large lawn with the whole family, including your canine companions, as well as a patio area perfect for relaxing to the sound of birdsong as you dine alfresco; a refreshing dip in the private indoor heated swimming pool is not to be missed.

The cottage was very comfortable and in a lovely quiet location. The pool was excellent. The owner was friendly and had left us tea, coffee, milk, fruit juice, etc. etc. which we found very useful. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in recommending the cottage to anyone else.

Charming house & gardens. Well equipped kitchen & swimming pool was a bonus to enjoy. All bedrooms I noted did not have full sized beds which I did find at 510 quite restrictive.
