    On arrival we were welcomed with a home baked cake, beer and prosecco in the fridge and a bottle of milk (the owner had contacted us previously to ask which milk we preferred!) The layout is very good with an open plan living and dining area with an amazing log burner for the colder nights. There is a back door leading to a nice garden with table and chairs, that we managed to use a couple of times - not expected for mid October. There are 2 good sized bedrooms and a new modern bathroom. Both bedrooms have a skylight - giving an amazing view of the starry sky on a clear night. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have had. The owner has left so many 'little touches' to make this place a 'home from home' and is short of nothing. The cottage is the middle of 3 and parking can be awkward at the top of a steep drive, if this is too difficult, you could park on the Pub car park and use the steps down to the cottage. If you need a local pub, The Northmore Arms is approx 20 yards away! A very old style local with good beers and beer garden. Chagford, the nearest town with shopping facilities is only 2.5 miles away and has some lovely shops, cafes and pubs. Please bear in mind that this is rural Devon and access to most places is by narrow track roads where passing places are minimal. just be prepared for a bit of 'give and take'. A great little place with walking access onto the west of Dartmoor. We used it as base to reach the south coast areas that were within an hours ride. Luckily we had good weather making our stay even more enjoyable.

The property

In the tiny edge-of-the-moor hamlet of Wonson, alongside a small, friendly pub (good food) and a lane-mile from Throwleigh, three cottages carefully and lovingly renovated from a long barn; we let two comfortable, welcoming cottages.

Driveway leads to the parking area at the front, with views over the little pub garden to fields and moor beyond.

Behind, each cottage has its own enclosed, private garden.

A great base for exploring beautiful, dramatic moorland just a few minutes’ walk from the door. The Bolthole is mid-row with own lawned garden with gravelled seating area (table/chairs, barbecue) behind.

Inside, the cottage has been laid out with great care and is light and airy with lots of thoughtful, homely touches.

From the parking area, 2 steps up to glazed door into spacious kitchen/dining area (slimline dishwasher, microwave, under counter fridge, electric cooker, additional small fridge/freezer available under the stairs), leading to the living room with handsome original beams, woodburner, TV/DVD, Sonos music system and Wii.

Stairs up to two pretty bedrooms with vaulted ceilings - a double with huge 6' bed, and another large, bright double (zip-linked 6' bed or twin); bathroom (suite, shower over bath, complementary bathrobes and slippers for use during stay). Throwleigh: little village (pretty church) in lanes below Dartmoor’s edge, on the lovely Mariners’ Way walk.

½ mile to pub, and to open moor; 2 to service station (shop); 5 to Chagford and Okehampton (golf, tennis, indoor pool, leisure centre, cinema).

Exeter, 18.

About the location


A picturesque town at the northern point of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, Chagford is small in size but is packed with amenities and things to do. There is a wide range of shops as well as four pubs. Chagford also has more active facilities such as public tennis court and an open-air swimming pool to enjoy at your leisure. It is a village of great history, home to the Three Crowns Hotel which dates back to the 1200's. Chagford is well known for its culture, hosting film, literary and music festivals in the village as well as an annual running race. Just over 15 miles away is the bustling, beautiful city of Exeter for a different kind of break, definitely worth a visit. The charming, attractive town of Okehampton sits just 12 miles away.
