    Mr Reeves, WINDSOR, November 2018

    • “This magical cottage makes you feel like you're stepping back in time with it's wooden beams, thatched roof and stone flooring. The log fire made you feel cosy and warm against the dark, dark skies. Total peace and tranquillity.”

    Mrs Tyas, BOURNEMOUTH, October 2018

    • “An amazing secluded gem of a cosy cottage . Whilst off the beaten track with has easy access to the moor it is not far from town either . Super clean and good WiFi . The secluded garden is behind the cottage so access is via the outside of the property - not a problem in daylight but at night if you have dogs there is no outside lighting apart from porch lamp”

    Mrs Winter, Aldershot, October 2018

The Property

The perfect escape: a private drive off a lane on the outskirts of Belstone leads to a clematis-covered, detached, thatched, medieval, Grade II listed single-storey cottage 100 yards from the open moor. Small, flower-filled front garden (table/chairs) and, behind, a larger, sheltered, enclosed, mainly lawned, private garden (picnic bench). The friendly owners' neighbouring house (through gates, unfenced pond) was once home to author Doris Lessing. The cottage, originally a Devon longhouse, has been marvellously restored with great flair. Heating by biomass boiler using sustainably sourced fuel.Small porch into flagstoned hall (washing machine, tumble drier). Two steps up to special living/dining room with huge oak-beamed ceiling, big fireplace (woodburner), original uneven flagstoned floor (rug), TV/DVD, window seats: a room to dream in. Step up to compact fitted kitchen (microwave, fridge, electric cooker); small shower-room (suite). Two bedrooms - a double (5'), and a small room with 3' bunks. A warm, cosy cottage.

Belstone: little high village (good food pub, church, village green) on the edge of the open moor, brilliant base for walking Dartmoor's highest hills and wildest valleys.
