Reviews

    • “This property is a regular destination and we are back in a few weeks. Really love the Bothy.”

    Mr Dahl, MARLBOROUGH, April 2018

    • “The Bothy was a beautiful holiday cottage in a great location. The Cottage was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and tastefully decorated, offering everything you need for a restful holiday.”

    Mrs Read, Brighton, March 2018

    • “The Bothy is so comfortable and well equipped we could easily imagine staying much longer than one week, if only we had the time. We were lucky to arrive in Manaton the day before the snow came. By our second day there was at least six inches on the ground, yet the Bothy was lovely and warm and cosy. There are so many picturesque walks from the doorstep we had no need to venture out in the car. A perfect place for a relaxing holiday.”

    Jonsson, March 2018

The Property

300 yards from the good food pub in Manaton, on a hedgerow-sheltered lane leading to the moors, a detached cottage beautifully converted from an old barn. It has the benefit of modern insulation/underfloor heating with the charm of ancient stonework. To one side, cobbled courtyard (table/chairs) and opposite, over a little lane, steps up to big, gently sloping garden (picnic table/chairs) with space for ball games or quiet reflection. Fourteen acres of woods and fields to explore (following the country code, dogs not permitted where livestock grazes); Hayne Brook runs beside the paddocks, perfect for Pooh sticks; the owners are pleased to introduce children to their friendly farm animals.
Six steps up to front door to hall with coats-cupboard; utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, loo). Spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric cooker, hand-crafted cupboards, granite worktops) with slate/oak floor, woodburner, TV/DVD, big feather sofa and glazed door to courtyard. Open tread stairs up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with balustrade and en suite shower-room (suite), and another double (5' zip-linked bed or 2'6" twins) with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower). DIY stabling, by arrangement (extra). A quality cottage within walking distance of the open moor; fine walks from the doorstep.






Manaton: pretty little village (pub with small shop, tennis court, playground, church) in a beautiful part of Dartmoor, and close to spectacular rock tors (Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose) and lovely tree-filled valleys (Lustleigh Cleave). Golf driving range, 5 miles. Nearest shop, 5 miles. Riding stables not far; Chagford, 6; the sea (Teignmouth/Torbay), 15.
