  • Mr Cole

    “Overall a lovely property in the middle of nowhere, which is perfect if you want to get away from everything but still has great wifi, which was an unexpected bonus.”


    Lovely walks from the doorstep, okish location for local amenities, with most places being at least 30mins away, which was expected. Garden is not very big, but there is a small enclosed area for dogs, but not much space if the kids want to play any games. I'd echo previous comments that the road leading to the property is very poor, you can access from the north or south, luckily for us our sat-nav took us in via the south because we arrived in darkness, had we used the north entrance, I think our car would have been wrecked. We tried the north route during the day and it was awful, massive potholes that you can't avoid, at one point the bottom of our car was scraping along the road, we were fortunate to avoid any major lasting damage, but we never used that route again.

Nearby there are pretty walks beside the River Taw (350 yards).

The newly renovated interior combines 21st century comforts with a touch of nostalgia in beautifully restored original features and stripped floorboards.

Dining room with original range (ornamental) and valley views.

About the location


Winkleigh 3 miles; Okehampton 7.5 miles.

The charming country town of North Tawton quietly rests amidst lush green fields, high hedgerows and winding lanes, just eight miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches and rolling surf of the North Devon coast, this delightful town boasts picturesque thatched cottages and quaint pubs. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and cycling, with many pretty little villages dotted throughout the area, and several excellent coarse fishing lakes and rivers, quality golf courses, and a number of National Trust properties within easy reach. There are few better spots from which to experience the joys of beautiful Devon.
