    “The Old Laundry at Ashridge Court was a mid-winter, mid-week break from everyday working life for my wife and I.”

    It lived up to all our expectations in every way. The Old Laundry was extremely comfortable & clean. The cottage has been lovingly restored to a high standard with a blend of traditional and modern features, equipped with everything you need for your stay. We chose to take a break in February to Ashridge Court after flights for a trip to Gibraltar were cancelled. I’m glad the flights were cancelled!

    It lived up to all our expectations in every way. The Old Laundry was extremely comfortable & clean. The cottage has been lovingly restored to a high standard with a blend of traditional and modern features, equipped with everything you need for your stay. We chose to take a break in February to Ashridge Court after flights for a trip to Gibraltar were cancelled. I’m glad the flights were cancelled! We experienced every type of weather during our stay, heavy rain, hail, strong winds even a little thunder & lightning, but with a plentiful supply of logs for the wood burner brought to the door by the owner, good books, wine & cheese and the odd film we kicked back and relaxed, and the bad weather only added to the experience. We had plenty of settled weather too, and as the cottage is within a working country estate we were free to wander the extensive tracks and woods as we wished, we did so with our dog and there is plenty of wildlife to see. The owners and everyone we came across who work on the estate were completely charming, pleasant and really happy to share their knowledge of how the estate is managed and worked. The whole ethos of the estate is environmentally and wildlife friendly, keep an eye out for the Peacock. A stay at the Old Laundry would be fantastic at any time of the year, but we particularly enjoyed the mid-winter aspect of it and if you don’t mind wrapping up and getting a bit mucky then I would recommend it to anyone, we came back completely recharged and a little more in touch with our magnificent countryside. Oh, and, if you wish, you can buy some of their slow grown, grass fed beef products. We did and it is outstanding.

The property

North of the Dartmoor National Park, located on an idyllic woodland estate, is this renovated detached cottage, set on the fringes of North Tawton.

This charming property has a traditional take on its décor with modern utilities throughout, and would suit a small group of friends or a couple.

At the front of the property, there is a hallway, cloakroom, and utility room, so the larger appliances such as the freezer and washing machine are neatly tucked away, leaving you more living space in the other areas.

Going through to the open-plan kitchen, dining area and sitting space, you will find wooden features and classic furnishings, with the sofa facing the wall-mounted TV and the woodburning stove for those chilly evenings.

Make the most of the zip-link flexibility of the bed, by turning the king-size double bed into a twin room for you and a friend, with another bedroom across the way hosting a single bed.

The bathroom is sleek and compact with everything you need to begin your day right, starting with a hot shower in the walk-in shower cubicle, as well as a basin and WC.

There are acres of pretty woodland surrounding the property, but you may want to chill-out in a more private space which is why it also has a private patio with seating for those balmy summer evenings.

The property is located just a 15-minute drive away from the A30, so you can easily venture out into Cornwall and Devon for a wider selection of tourist attractions and activities on offer.

Why not visit the town next door, Okehampton, which is host to a number of attractions such as the Museum of Dartmoor Life which is responsible for bringing community activities, events and exhibitions to life in the area and providing tourist information for North Dartmoor.

Of course for those seeking a thrill, you can travel over to a popular spot in the national park, Hound Tor, and have a go at some bouldering and climbing activities.

The Old Laundry is a home-away-from-home for you and your friends.
