    “We had a lovely relaxing time in a small, but perfectly formed country cottage.”

    Very clean and welcoming. We slept like logs in very comfortable beds and made use of the fantastic local pub - the Who’d Have Thought It. ...

    Very clean and welcoming. We slept like logs in very comfortable beds and made use of the fantastic local pub - the Who’d Have Thought It. The parking is separate from the house, but just a short wander along a quiet road, so no great hardship. The village itself is very friendly and we spoke to lots of people on our wanders with our dog. The only negatives were that it wasn’t very warm. We had the wood burning stove on every night and our en suite shower stopped working half way through our week. Luckily there is another one to use. Overall we appreciated our stay in a lovely cottage filled with lovely touches. Thank you

The property

Yelverton 2.7 miles.

1 Woodside Cottages is set in the very pretty village of Milton Combe, just a few miles from Yelverton.

Stylish yet welcoming, this lovely retreat rests between the Tamar Valley AONB and Dartmoor National Park, both offering breathtaking scenery, superb walks and a range of countryside pursuits.

Inside you'll find a warm and inviting stting room where you can recline on the sofa in front of a roaring woodburning stove.

The dining area is a wonderfully social space for enjoying a meal or sharing a bottle of wine whilst the well fitted kitchen houses a feature Range cooker and everything you'll need to prepare delicious meals.

At the end of a day exploring the area, retire to one of two peaceful bedrooms, a spacious double with a super kingsize bed and ensuite shower room or a twin room which overlooks the garden.

A second shower room on the ground floor means that guests needn't share facilities.

During the summer months you can dine alfresco in the terraced garden or simply sit with a good book and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Surrounded by the Tamar Valley AONB and Dartmoor National Park, there is no shortage of good walking nearby.

Head to the Walkham Valley where rugged scenic panoramas meet gentle woodlands, or Lopwell Dam for a host of breathtaking views and colours year round.

For keen gardeners, The Garden House is a horticultural experience and there some excellent nurseries to visit.

The National Trust's Buckland Abbey is a little over half a mile away and is well worth a visit, as is the nearby ancient market town of Tavistock which offers a wide range of eateries and a wonderful Pannier Market.

Further afield the golden sandy beaches of the South Hams are perfect for families whilst the bright lights of Plymouth with its theatre, shopping and restaurants is a highlight for couples seeking an evening 'on the town'.

Whatever you decide, you're assured of a wonderful break here at 1 Woodside Cottages.
