    “This cottage was ideal, and with good facilities.”

    Lovely local, friendly pub, within walking distance, but would recommend to take a torch as the lane is very dark. There are some amazing walks to be done. My only suggestion would be that when the owners know that guest are arriving, that it would be a nice touch to make the cottage to feel more welcoming, if they put the heating on. We arrived when it was dark, and the place was freezing and its a bit of a treasure hunt to find the key to adjust the timer on the heating. Apart from that ...

Apart from that very small niggle, we loved our stay, which was over the Christmas period and would definitely go back.

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.

Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, leisure centre, bicycle hire, cinema), 3½ miles; Chagford, 8; sea/sand/surf at Bude, about 30.

Riding/pony-trekking and fishing locally.

Filling station/shop (24 hours), 1 mile.
