Netherton Cottage is set in the very pretty village of Buckland Monachorum, just a few miles from Yelverton.

Warm and 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 stylish open-plan living space, where you can recline on the sofas in front of a roaring woodburning stove.The dining table is a wonderfully social space for enjoying a meal or sharing a bottle of wine whilst the well fitted kitchen houses a feature Aga 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 very spacious first floor double with a kingsize bed, day bed and ensuite shower room or a ground floor room with a kingsize bed.

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 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 Trusts' Buckland Abbey is a little over 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 Netherton Cottage.
