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. Steep, rough track (unsuitable for low vehicles) 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).
Throwleigh: little village (pretty church) in lanes below Dartmoors 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. Fishing and riding not far.
Two bedrooms: 1 x super king-size double, 1 x super king-size double (or twin on request). Open plan living area with sitting area with wood burning stove, fitted kitchen and dining area. Bathroom with bath, shower over basin and WC.
THROWLEIGH 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.
