    “Buckland Monachorum is a great base for a Devon holiday, close to Western Dartmoor, the Tavy and Tamar valleys, various National Trust properties and the Route 27 coast-to-coast walking & cycling route.”

    Best of all, the fabulous Drake Manor Inn is just down the road and open for excellent food and drink seven days a week. The cottage is very cosy and clean, comfortably and interestingly furnished and has probably the best equipped kitchen of anywhere I’ve stayed in. It’s on the main street of the village but very quiet. There’s a beautiful garden - it wasn’t outdoor breakfast weather when we stayed, but we did enjoy getting the woodburner going.

    Best of all, the fabulous Drake Manor Inn is just down the road and open for excellent food and drink seven days a week. The cottage is very cosy and clean, comfortably and interestingly furnished and has probably the best equipped kitchen of anywhere I’ve stayed in. It’s on the main street of the village but very quiet. There’s a beautiful garden - it wasn’t outdoor breakfast weather when we stayed, but we did enjoy getting the woodburner going. Garth the cottage owner lives in the village and was on hand and very helpful with any query. We had a lovely week and hope to come back.

This lovely property is situated in the quaint village of Buckland Monarchorum, a short drive from Yelverton in the Dartmoor National Park.

The terraced cottage is ideal for families or a couple wanting a pleasing base for their adventures in the Devonshire countryside.

The ground floor accommodation consists of a cosy sitting area with woodburning stove, a fully appointed kitchen and a beautiful dining room with a glass atrium roof filling the room with light.

Upstairs there is a family bathroom and two pleasing bedrooms.

The larger of the two has a comfortable kingsize bed and charming ornate fireplace.

The smaller room has a single bed and beautiful views over the garden.

The property has a large, split level garden to the rear, with a patio area and furniture on the one and steps up to a further decking area.

Both offer the perfect place for relaxing on a summer's afternoon with a glass of wine.
