    • “Yes it was very comfortable. The position on the edge of the Moor was marvelous and the local pub "Northmore Arms" was very welcoming. We paricularly liked the way the Bakeshouse had been restored. There was a huge attention to detail plus real art which made the cottage a joy.”

    Mrs Davis, Falmouth, December 2018

    • “The Bakehouse is a beautiful cottage to stay in. Renovated to a high standard. It is worth staying in for the fireplace alone. The cottage is set right on the edge of Dartmoor but towns are within easy driving distance.There is something for everyone be it walking, sightseeing or just staying put and enjoying the peace and quiet The Bakehouse provides. Thoroughly recommended.”

    Mr Tribe, Arundel, October 2018

    • “Perfect cottage, fantastic location, Rachel and Alan couldn’t have been more welcoming, we will definitely be back!”

    Mr Heaton, Haverfordwest, October 2018

    • “Flowers and food provided by owners' son, was a nice welcome touch. Extremely quiet location, directly onto moor, with grazing sheep, ponies and cattle outside the property. Just the getaway-from-it-all we needed. We would consider returning, as the property is in a fairly accessible location for exploring much of Dartmoor and Devon.”

    Mr Rust, Colchester, September 2018

    • “The Bakehouse has never failed to please whichever weather and season we visit. For a true moors experience the location is perfect encompassing exposed moorland and verdant, moss swathed valleys.”

    Mrs Furniss, MORETON-IN-MARSH, July 2018

The Property

Between Throwleigh (1 mile) and Gidleigh (1 mile), a beautifully renovated, late medieval cottage sheltered by oak trees. It has a well restored barn attached and faces south over its own neat, walled garden where you can sit in the sun and listen to bees, birdsong and the occasional cluck or honk of the friendly owners’ chickens and geese. The owners run the farm, where cattle, sheep and ponies are grazed, and the cottage is part of the historic group of farm buildings with its ancient farmhouse. Inside, smart with slate floors downstairs and beautiful oak floors upstairs. Hall. Step down to compact living/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with granite worktops, folding dining table/chairs, huge fireplace (woodburner), TV/DVD and door (5'3" lintel) to small garden. Shower-room (suite, big cubicle). Washer-drier in cupboard. Stairs up to two bedrooms (limited clothes-hanging space) - step down to a roomy double (5' bed, TV) with handsome roof timbers and original ancient stairs down to the living room (you don’t need to use them), and a twin (2'6" beds, linkable to 5' double). Spring water. A lovely retreat with wonderful walking directly on to the moors from your doorstep; abundant wildlife and moorland archaeology.

Gidleigh: pretty hamlet with 16th cent. church and castle (in private grounds), 2 miles from Chagford, ¾ mile from the open moor (short walk to fine prehistoric stone circle and a lovely stretch of the North Teign River - swimming), and on the beautiful Mariners’ Way footpath.
